When LA prostitute Julia Roberts gives big-shot New York businessman Richard Gere directions to Beverly Hills, she gets more than she bargained for.
Gere needs an escort while he’s in town, so makes Roberts a business proposition – to be his escort for a week for $3000. Roberts accepts and gets to live in luxury, go to expensive dinner dates and have designer clothes bought for her.
It’s not long, of course, before their relationship moves onto a much more personal footing…
What could have been quite a tasteless story is saved by smart humour and engaging performances from Roberts and Gere. There’s also a great supporting turn from Laura San Giacomo and you can’t help but be won over by the film’s charm.
