    Are you kidding me??!! I can not even conceive of a more insulting movie than ” Pretty Woman ” as one choice of your 10 Top LOVE Movies! Julia Roberts plays a Prostitute who is “saved” by a rich, white Aquisitions Executive, ( Richard Gere ), whom he HIRES for a weekend of sex and and role – playing complete with wardrobe lessons. The movie is misogynistic and inane. Please don’t insult the intelligence of 51 percent of the population including those of us who are very fortunate to be born “pretty” ~ though put down with stereotypical remarks on a daily basis!!
