"Pretty Woman" (1990)

Pretty Woman (1990) was a huge box office success ($463.4m worldwide) and launched Julia Roberts career earning her a Best Actress nomination in the process. Somewhat like Titanic, it became fashionable to trash the film and Julia's performance. I enjoyed it the first time I saw it, but thought of it as light fluff. I also didn't see any exposure. Watching the director's cut DVD, I was doing so carefully and critically, and this is a very well made film, with a great performance from Roberts, a good job by Gere as a pretty dry character, and some excellent supporting performances. Not only that, but there are a few frames of one of Julia's breasts scene through the scrollwork of the bed she is in with Gere. The additional material in the directors cut should have been left in the original release. It was mainly background story, but made for better continuity.

Critics liked this one a lot (Maltin 3 stars, and Ebert 3 1/2), and IMDB readers are somewhat less impressed at 6.5/10, which is respectable for a romantic comedy at IMDB. The photography is very nice, although budget constraints caused them to buy some stock footage, such as an airplane flying past a sunset. They had planed to actually use the San Francisco opera for the opera scene, but the Loma Prieta earthquake caused the building to be shut down, and they had to recreate the opera on a sound stage.

In case some of you have just returned to this planet after a 12 year absence, Julia is a Hollywood Blvd. hooker, and Gere is a New York millionaire in town to acquire a company, so he can break it up and sell the assets. Gere breaks up, calmly and efficiently, with his girlfriend by phone, borrows his lawyer's car (a Lotus), and gets lost trying to find his hotel. When he stops to ask Robert's for directions, she offers to sell them to him:

Roberts: I'll tell you for five bucks.
Gere: That's ridiculous.
Roberts: It just went up to ten bucks.
Gere: You can't charge for directions.
Roberts: I'm not the one who's lost.

She gets in the Lotus, goes back to Gere's hotel, and spends the night. Gere decides to hire her for a week, supposedly for something to wear on his arm, but also for the company, and because he is intrigued by Roberts. You can pretty much figure out the story from here. I had always thought of it as a Cinderella story, but it is more like a remake of Cinderella. Roberts, of course, is Cinderella and Gere prince charming. The fairy godmother is the hotel manager, played to perfection by Hector Elizondo, the evil step-sisters are two snotty Rodeo Drive clothing clerks, and the evil stepmother is Gere's lawyer. Oh, and the coach is the Lotus.

In addition to the clear breast shot, there is a lot of cleavage, see-through and poke-through by Roberts. In the commentary by director Garry Marshall, he mentions that Julia was so nervous doing the sex scene that she broke out in hives. The DVD transfer is good. It is advertised as Wide Screen, but is actually Letterboxed.

    I looked at The Pledge. That's the new Sean Penn movie starring Jack Nicholson. Brilliant movie, very European in sensibility, depressing as hell. It isn't fair that Sean Penn should be so talented as a director to go with his acting ability. He may be the best combination actor/director since Orson Welles, but those two guys couldn't be more different. Welles, chatty, brilliant, social. Penn, taciturn, troubled, intense. Whatever works for ya, I guess. No nudity.

    I did images from "Another 9 1/2 Weeks", which is a lot better movie than it sounds like. I'll talk about it tomotrrow, since I'm running late as I write this. The movie is beautifully photographed, except for the nude scenes, which are darker than a friggin' black hole. Wouldn't ya know it?

    The collages look good, but mainly because of the non-nude portions, so here's Angie Everhart who, as you may have noticed, is pretty easy on the eyes.

    Info from a recent film festival, originally posted by NicNac.

    "Dancing at the Blue Iguana"

    "This one really surprised me. I wasn't expecting much at all, but it was extremely good, and everybody got naked, or at least topless in G-strings, including first-timer Charlotte Ayanna, Daryl Hannah, Sheila Kelley (who showed the most skin, and was also one of the producers), Sandra Oh, Jennifer Tilly, and Kristin Bauer, along with a few stripper-extras. This one might get an art house release but will be an uphill marketing battle. Although it was far from a comedy, Jennifer Tilly had a line so funny that everyone in the audience laughed, which never, ever happens at a film market."

    Let's call it the "big breast contribution" for this weekend.
    First, two former Playmates in "Young Doctors in Love".

    Lessa Rowland Vidcaps from "Class of Nuke 'em High 2". The two frames on the left and right in the second row are not original caps. I put these together from two different frames 'cause in the movie you can only see the lower part of her face.
    Evelyn Opela Topless, rear, and brief frontal nudity in scenes from 1971's "Das falsche Gewicht".

    Amanda Ooms Showing just about everything in these scenes from 1999's "Recycled".

    Katja Giammona
    (1, 2)

    From "Der Millionär und die Stripperin" and "Tatort: Streng geheimer Auftrag". #2 has the only breast exposure.

    More top models and famous babes...

    Kimmi from Survivor The most recent contestant to get the boot. Here she is topless (sorta) before Survivor.

    Denise Van Outen Without question, this is my pick of the day! In these 'caps by Skease, Denise deep throats a cucumber while showing off some mega-cleavage on British TV!

    Vidcaps by DeVo from 1997's "The Beneficiary". #1 features clear breast exposure. #2 also features breast exposure, but the 'caps are a little darker.

    Topless 'caps from "Conde de Abranhos", by Mr. B. Sorry gang, nothing in the IMDB about this movie. However, if the IMDb is correct, I think Sofia may be the only Angolan celebrity in the Fun House.

    Two collages with plenty of topless frames by HBS Grafix. Not too sure of the source, but my best guess would be one of the many "Lemon Popsicle" movies.

    Courtney Love Just barely keeping her boobs in her dress at the Grammys. 'Caps by Freakie.

    Mary-Louise Parker Topless 'caps by C2000 from 1999's "Let the Devil Wear Black"

    Élodie Bouchez Almost full frontal nudity (you can see just a hint of pubes). I'm not too sure of the source, but DaRed gets full credit for the 'caps.

    Nicholl Rae More B movie fun with Donbun as he continues to 'cap scenes from 1996's "Vice Girls". The Robbins Report, courtesy of an IMDb user..."a low budget spoof - Pulp Fiction meets Charlie's Angels!". Sounds good to me!

    In these 'caps, Nicholl (credited simply as "Actress" in the movie) gets nekkid, but apparently her boobs weren't big enough, and someone shot her smack dab in the middle of her forehead.

    Angela Taylor Also from "Vice Girls" by Donbun. Angela's large, fake breasts must have been more appealing since she doesn't get shot in these 'caps.

    Allison Lange The young actress gets topless in the tub in scenes from another clichéd "horror" flick, "Christina's House". Vidcaps by Jotell.

    Géraldine Sales A little on the dark side, but these 'caps from "La Loire, Agnès et les garçons", show off a nice body. 'Caps by Jotell.

    Robin Tunney Robin taking her clothes off in the mega-stinker, "Supernova". Vidcaps by Skease.
