Pretty Woman

Question: Is there any particular reason Julia Robert's dress was changed from the blue and white dress she wears at the beginning of the movie to a black and pink version of the same dress on the movie poster and film/disc cover? I've always wondered why - there's really no reason for the change.

Chosen answer: Posters are usually designed long after the film has been made, and by the marketing department. Decisions about the outfit may have been based solely on what was considered best by the marketing department (for instance, to match the color of the lettering in the title.) Also, Julia Roberts' head has been super-imposed onto a model's body in the poster image (just as Richard Gere's hair has been darkened). These are all creative marketing decisions.

Mistakes

The morning after Vivian's first night at the hotel, room service brings breakfast. When she's eating a croissant it cuts to a shot of Edward, and when it cuts back to Vivian she's eating a pancake which goes from being half done, to being a whole pancake again.

Trivia

The scene where Edward offers Viv the necklace and shuts the box on her fingers wasn't scripted - Richard Gere (Edward) just did it for a laugh. You can tell, because when he does it, Julia Roberts (Viv) laughs and looks up and around (ie. at the film crew) - in the context of that scene there wasn't anyone there for her to look at.
