- Cast: Richard Gere, Julia Roberts
In this hugely successful comedy-romance, Gere stars as an unfeeling financial wheeler-dealer discovering he is human after all when he spends a week in the company of Roberts' downhome goodtime girl. Conversely, she rediscovers her self-esteem by carrying off the role of his high society companion with charm, so the audience can feel happy for both of them. The outline might be as hackneyed as they come, but television veteran Marshall has just the right lightness of touch.
