Our Score
Originally meant to be a serious drama (called $3,000) about a man buying a prostitute for the night, this turned into a delightful romantic comedy in the hands of Garry Marshall and sent the career of star Julia Roberts into the stratosphere. Co-star Richard Gere didn't do too badly, either - he'd been on a downward spiral before the role of tycoon Edward Lewis came along. On screen they make the "hooker falls for a millionaire in Beverly Hills" tale completely plausible, aided by Marshall's glossy direction, the hit-filled soundtrack, a perky screenplay from JF Lawton (who also scripted the thriller Under Siege) and hilarious support from Marshall stalwart Hector Elizondo.


A ruthless millionaire hires a prostitute while on a business trip. Realising she may be useful in helping him keep up a successful appearance, he pays her to accompany him for a week as he associates with the rich and powerful - but falls in love despite their many differences. Romantic comedy, starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts, with Ralph Bellamy and Laura San Giacomo.
