Like a pumpkin that transforms into a carriage, some very shrewd casting (and the charisma of Julia Roberts, in particular) morphed this story of a Hollywood whore into a Disneyfied Cinderella story--and a mainstream megah...  more »

Movie Reviews

Not the original
A. Woodman | 11/11/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"For anyone who simply wants to know if this is the original theatrical version, like myself--it's not. It's the same as the 10th Anniversary Edition, with the stuff from the cutting room floor thrown back into the movie, instead of in Bonus Features where it belongs. I'm so thankful I still have the oringinal release that I love on video."

"First of all, I compared the 10th and 15th anniversary versions side-by-side and here's what I observed on my 65" widescreen HDTV:

1) while the 15th anniversary version claims to be "anamorphic widescreeen", there is absolutely no difference in the size of the picture onscreen (the 10th anniversary version was also presented in a 1.85:1 aspect ratio, making it "anamorphic");

2) that said, however, the picture quality of the 15th anniversary version is far superior to the 10th anniversary version, which is marred by dark shadowing and lots of grain - the 15th anniversary version is cleaned-up, with a much brighter picture and virtually devoid of grain or flecks;

3) while the 10th anniversary version was "edited for content", the 15th anniversary version is the full-length, unedited theatrical version;

4) the 15th anniversary version includes a few bonus extras and bloopers.

The bottom line is, if you're a fan of "Pretty Woman", a full-length, improved-picture version of the movie makes it a must-have. Get it - if for nothing else, your significant live-in lady will love you for it."
Finally "Pretty Woman" done right.

"I would like to as someone who understands DVD a little more than several people who have already "reviewed" this DVD give a little explanation on what is important about this release.

Unlike the two previous DVD releases, the 15th Anniversary edition finally offers the film in an Anamorpic Widescreen (aka "Enhanced For Widescreen TVs) transfer. What that means is that for people who have a Widescreen TV it will fill (or mostly fill, depending on the aspect ratio of the film) the TV. Even if you do not own a Widescreen TV yet you still will benefit on your standard shape TV since your DVD player inserts most of the black bars (henseforth the picture itself has extra resolution - which means a better more cleaner picture). Plus when you do get a Widescreen TV you will have a superior copy of "Pretty Woman" to watch on that TV (unlike the previous two which would leave you with black bars on all sides of the TV which you'd have to zoom in on, reducing the picture quality in the process).

I can understand the frustration of re-releases like this, but on the upside the new 15th Anniversary is within the same price as the previous 10th Anniversary and with the quality of the movie improved that alone to me is worth it (or in my case worth the wait, as I advoided the 10th Anniversary just for that reason). The only thing I wish that would of been on this release is at least a new audio commentary with Gary Marshall, as he is very entertaining to listen to (the "Runaway Bride" commentary is well worth a listen to - he points out things that you would of never noticed before during it).

As far as for the movie itself... well we all know its a classic so nothing more needs to be said."
