Pretty Woman Review – Starring AnaEVAAli and Michael Chiklis
For those of you familiar with Jane Fonda’s “The Kids Are All Leaving Home” (2021) know that the character of Mrs. Eva_lynn is based on the very real Eva Lyon, a young mother who returns home from war to find her young children have vanished. The discovery that their home has been invaded by a band of armed men (and the fact that the family pet has been murdered) draws the immediate attention of the authorities and the local girl scout troop who are calling out to investigate. What they learn about Mrs. Eva_Lynn and the reasons for her return home are what make the film such a delight to watch.
The only thing lacking in the film was perhaps the amount of times the director (erence Ellison) could have cut out or inserted some other characters to give it more weight. Because we are dealing with adult content, we are only afforded the briefest of clips; however, what is shown is enough to make any viewer feel for the poor girl and her husband. The entire film revolves around the question of whether or not Eva_Lynn’s daughter (played by Anna Pigeon) is really safe with her husband and father (Denis Loeffler and Patrick Swayze). It becomes a race against time to find the two missing girls, with the help of some new people, and to determine whether or not Eva_lynn will ever be found.
With the arrival of a local TV reporter, we get to see the daily life of Mrs. Eva_Lynn and her daughter. The reporter is not only a source of information but also an investigator who is determined to get to the bottom of the whole mystery. While he is busy searching the internet, Eva_lynn and the kids are somehow pulled from their vacation and transported to an underground facility which is the site of the worst fight between the military and terrorist group terrorists. It is here, while both the girl scout and her mother are missing, that she discovers that her own daughter has also gone missing.
The arrival of a couple of military deservers who have somehow survived the initial attack and are hiding out inside the facility leads the team on a chase through the tunnels. What they do not know is that the terrorists have also taken control of the facility and are intent on killing everyone and anyone who try to escape from their base. However, with the help of an adult Christian and a couple of military deservers, Eva_Lynn and her team manage to get through the tunnels and rescue the adults who were taken hostage. They are however warned by the girl scout that if they continue to fight, they will only push their captors even further away and risk their lives. Shortly after, the girl scout is kidnapped herself and taken to a secret location where a helicopter drops an airplane carrying a man who identifies himself as Frank Sinatra.
Frank then goes on to tell the group about his experience in the movie Pretty Woman (in which he played the title role). He reveals to them that Eva_lynn is his daughter, but he cannot save her as her mother died many years ago when she was pregnant. To make matters worse, Frank ends up killing his captor and flees the scene, leaving Eva_lynn to fend for herself and her baby while trying to locate her father. Frank ends up helping her escape while she completes her own mission and returns to the compound to find his own way out.
Overall, the film has excellent acting that sells the story. There are some really touching moments including the mother having to hold the baby for her daughter’s protection and the father finally getting home safely. The photography is colorful and dynamic without being over the top and there is also some suspense. The ending is predictable but satisfying. Overall, this is an effective family film that leaves the audience wanting more…
