    Sign up for Skillshare: skl.sh/thetake58 | What was Pretty Woman really saying about money? Was it a capitalist cautionary tale - or a capitalist fairy tale? Almost 20 years later, the 1990 classic (starring Richard Gere and Julia Roberts) is still telling us a lot about our desire for love, wealth, or both love and wealth.

Bloody hell your videos are always good... but this was exceptional! I just completed a course on project and corporate management and the description of Edward... that was like half of my lecturers in a nutshell. It's kind of scary actually. I wonder how many of them have transcational marriages. Anyway wow and thanks.

Abhilash Bisht Thanks for the reply! I made a rookie mistake, apparently I was clicked on the “billed annually £7 a month”, which they rightfully assume then you’ll used the whole service for a year, therefore they’ll charge you £84, which makes sense! But you can click on the other option which is billed “monthly £13”. So after those 2 free months they will charge you the monthly £13. Sorry for the confusion!

I disagree with the idea that rich man is the equivalent of a pretty girl. Even just look at the sentence. Man (adult) vs girl (infantilized woman in this case). A pretty girl is seen as selling yourself, vying for buyers. She doesn't have the power in this case. A rich man, especially a charming one, is seen as shopping. His money can open any doors for him. He does have power.

"“It would be an excellent match, for he was rich, and she was handsome. . . . she [Mrs. Jennings] was always anxious to get a good husband for every pretty girl.” (Sense and Sensibility) "But there certainly are not so many men of large fortune in the world as there are pretty women to deserve them.” (Mansfield Park) Jane Austen telling it like it is since 1810

The beginning mentions the parallels between prostitution and capitalism, then later mentions how My Fair Lady was based on "Pygmalion" by Bernard Shaw. Bernard Shaw's plays were famous for often drawing explicit parallels between prostitution and capitalism (esp Mrs Warren's Profession). Also in "Pygmalion," Eliza leaves Higgins for good when she realized how he used her, but in the remake she goes crawling back to him. And it's funny how THAT version is the one that stayed in our popular consciousness.

Thank you, girls, because this kind of videos are really good to analyze the media we consumed in a little more practical way. I just read the book Crazy Rich Asians, and I couldn't stop to think in this video, and the 50 shades of grey. It's true, It is the perfect capitalist fairy tale.

All the film taught me is that if you wanna be successful, be physically attractive. Imagine if Viv was a right dog...no one would care about her, he certainly wouldn't have picked her up, and she'd probably be dead of a drug overdose or some weirdo killing her by now. So if you're born with shit genes, you're gonna have it tougher in this life no question about it. Doesn't mean you can't be successful but you'll have to work harder UNLESS you were lucky to be born into money in which case thank God you were cuz you ain't the prettiest thing in the world lol.

My mom used to watch this movie all the time when I was a kid. I really appreciate this adult look at it. I do have a comment, though: 12:30 Someone hasn't seen Overboard for a long minute. This movie has NOT aged well. The story is full of awfully sexist double standards (the female character gets excessively punished for being a stuck up bitch; the male character never gets punished for his malicious schemes), and the "irresistible rom-com" element is rapey by today's standards.

Wow, The Take, you do wonders for peoples love of movies, Hollywood itself should pay you. My wish: Do The Talented Mr Ripley, based on genius crime writer Patricia Highsmiths novels. Many movie adaptions came from her work, recently Carol ( actors, Blanchett & Mara), Todd Haynes masterpiece. Highsmith was in her day compared to Dostojevskij, loved in Europe, underrated in America. She deserves a golden hommage!

As much I like The Talented Mister Ripley, she really fall in the old troupe of the amoral character being sexually "depraved" aka being a homosexual, like if that was a sign of malice from part of the character, most funny thing, the people that surround Ripley are offend more amoral and hypocritical that he is.

In Audrey Hepburn's Sabrina, her transformation only happens cause her father sends her to get an education so partial wish granted? Also in a reverse of My Fair Lady, it's Sabrina who we see teaching Linus French as well as to value the little things that her modest but happy upbringing allowed her to see.

To me it's less "choose love over money", but rather "choose love over making money, but only when you already have the money - and loads of it" P.s. my goodness, you've just reminded me there was once a time when romcoms where not all absolutely terrible.
