Synopsis

Richard Gere and Julia Roberts double bill. In 'Pretty Woman', high-powered, lonely businessman Edward Lewis (Gere) hires L.A. prostitute Vivian Ward (Roberts) to give him directions when he gets lost, and later to be his escort for a week while he wheels and deals, in this modern fairytale. He buys her clothes, she softens his heart and the unlikely couple fall head over heels in love. In 'Runaway Bride', Ike Graham (Gere) is a successful, flippant and misogynstic New York journalist, who writes an accusing piece on the antics of Maggie Carpenter (Julia Roberts), a Maryland woman who has left three men at the altar. When Maggie protests about the inaccuracies in the article, Ike is fired. Ike decides to pursue the story further, and journeys to Maryland, where he meets Maggie and discovers she is due to be married for a fourth time. As Ike gets to know Maggie, he begins to fall for her charms, and realises why so many men before have been led down the aisle...
