There are several coincidences to the romantic comedy Pretty Woman (1990). Both movies contain a "morning after" scene (after the first time the two characters have sex) in which the woman sits at a dining table in a bathrobe, her foot on the chair so her leg is up against her body, eating breakfast foods with her hands instead of utensils. Both movies contain the Roy Orbison song "Pretty Woman" in significant scenes. In broader terms, "Pretty Woman" and all the versions of "A Star Is Born" are "Pygmalion" stories (after the eponymous George Bernard Shaw play)--plots in which a younger, more naive woman falls under the guiding influence of an older, more experienced man who helps her advance in life.

An extended version of the film, dubbed the "Encore Edition" with an additional 12 minutes of new footage, was released on March 1, 2019 for a limited one-week engagement. The material consists of longer takes of musical numbers, as well as a brand-new, never-before-seen song "Clover", by Ally and Jackson. See more »
I did not want to watch this movie but took my wife to see it, because we both saw the one with Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand, growing up. The crowd was a lot older than we were(we are almost 50) it was the biggest screen they had at our theater and seats a lot but it was maybe half full on Sunday afternoon. Not one dry eye in the place, it had a great tempo and didn't drag on or have any lulls in the story. We were both very pleased and are still engaging in conversations about the movie. It's my opinion to highly recommend to everyone go out and watch a great movie and a heartfelt movie that redefines love in this time and age we live in. That is my two cents, hope you enjoy as much as we have.
