The movie, a modern take on the classic Pygmalion Greek myth, Robert plays Vivian Ward, a prostitute with a heart of gold (and lots of sass!) who falls in love with a wealthy businessman, Edward Lewis, played by Gere.

He hires her as an escort for a prolonged period of time and she stays in his luxurious hotel suite, where she gets to not only have sex with him, but also rock out to Prince while taking a relaxing bubble bath.

Meanwhile, hijinks ensue when her new, handsome, wealthy client starts to help transform her, physically and mentally, into a respectable lady of society.

Giacomo played her friend and fellow prostitute Kit De Luca. Elizondo portrayed the compassionate hotel manager Barney Thompson.

Roberts and Gere have reunited before. They played love interests in the 1999 romantic comedy film Runaway Bride, which also starred Elizondo and which Marshall also directed. Seinfeld alum Jason Alexander, who played Edward's shady lawyer in Pretty Woman and did not appear in the Today show's reunion for the movie, also starred with Gere in the 2009 film Hachi: A Dog's Tale.
