Pretty Woman

Pretty Woman
Edward Lewis is a high stakes, shrewd businessman on what he hopes is a lucrative trip when he decides to pick up prostitute Vivian Ward. After spending the night together, Edward makes Vivian an offer she can’t refuse: she’ll get $3,000 if she agrees to be his companion for the week. Will their week long affair end in love? Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “Pretty Woman”.

∙ After their first night together, Edward is sitting at the table when Vivian walks up behind him. When he gets off the phone, Vivian says “hi” and the close-up of Edward shows he’s holding his Wall Street Journal with both hands. During the next two close-ups, the paper is on the table and Edward isn’t touching it. In the next view, when Edward asks if she’s hungry, he puts the paper back on the table.

∙ Vivian and Edward are eating breakfast together. Vivian is eating a croissant throughout the scene. There is a quick view of Edward when she asks how far he got in school and he answers
“all the way”. It flips back to Vivian and she’s eating a pancake.

∙ When Vivian returns from her shopping spree wearing the hat and new outfit, the front view of her shows her purse is under her right arm. There is then a rear view of her and the purse is under her left arm.

∙ Edward and Vivian are having dinner with Mr. Morse and his grandson David. After the main course, everyone has a silver sorbet dish in front of them. When Edward asks Mr. Morse what he can do for him, the close-up of Edward shows there is no dish in front of him. In the following view of Vivian, Edward and Mr. Morse, the dish is back in front of Edward. The waiter is shown taking it away.
