Who can forget the red dress to the opera, I still covert the brown & cream ensemble as worn to the polo!.....(Fav bits!) I can say that one of the best holidays I have ever had followed this film to LA, where we did (best pal & I) drive down Rodeo Drive in a stretch limo, complete with 2 guys who stood out of the sun roof arms stretched complete with umbrellas and red roses!...( I hasten to say that they were gay!)..great fun was had by all!
This is one of my all time fav films and was happy to see the joining of romcom director Garry Marshall, the lovely hotel manager Barney (Hector Elizondo) and the beautiful Vivian (Julia Roberts) join together to bring us Valentines day, which can i saw is one of the best chick flicks that I have seen in a very long time. Not only is it wall to wall eye candy, (Eric Dane jogging along the beach is quite literally breathtaking!!) but it has a stella cast, a great story and for a cynical unromantic like myself it gives you hope!
It also has a couple of subtle homages back to Pretty Woman which are just great!....check out when Julia Roberts is at the airport and she is offered a driver and a car to "take her where ever she wants to go" and if you miss the final scene in the credits you will be making a Big Mistake... Huge!
(i promise that my moonlighting stint on film 2010 has now ended and normal service will soon resume!)
