This is Hollywood. Always time to dream, so keep on dreamin'. This week we've woken up half in a cocaine-fuelled drama, half in a modern-day fairy tale and half in a My Fair Lady homage in Pretty Woman. Join your favourite TransAtlantic podcasting crew – Ian, Liam, Ellie, & Georgia as we need a little pick-me-up and so we're headed for the spiritual prequel to Runaway Bride.  We're gonna treat you so good you're not gonna want to let us go in this 41st episode as we discuss:

  • The murderers row of actresses who were at some point linked to the roles of Vivian and Edward
  • How Julia Roberts convinced Richard Gere to take the role
  • If the story is problematic in a 2020 lens - especially Vivian's introduction
  • Ian & Liam gush over how great the soundtrack to this film is
  • We talk more about condoms and dental floss than you'd expect
  • We ask why we forgive Julia Roberts so quickly for a massive indiscretion in Act I
  • We reveal Disney's desired finish for the film
  • There's a link between this film and Norwich, England that you might not expect
  • We discuss the many fantastic outfits of Julia Roberts in this film
  • There's a lot of tie-ins to NBC sitcoms of the 1990s
  • We talk about piano cleanliness more that we thought we would
  • Whether or not Pretty Woman is the Best Film Ever.
