If Pretty Woman Happened In Real Life

Pretty Woman is one of those movies where, if you see that it’s on on a Saturday afternoon, even if it’s on the USA Network, you just have to watch it. Okay, I have to anyway (other movies like this include Top Gun, Ghost, and the Clooney Ocean’s 11.) This happened last weekend, and I thought the same thing we all think when we see that movie now: that it is completely and utterly ridiculous, even by romantic comedy standards. So I was reminded of this great clip from the late, lamented Chappelle’s Show that shows what would happen if just one of Pretty Woman’s ridiculous scenes happened in real life:

They could have done that with the entire movie, starting with the part where Vivian doesn’t do drugs.
