Want a sneak peek at this epic Western featuring Keri Russell, Skeet Ulrich, Beau Bridges, and Josh Brolin? You’re in luck!

Pretty Woman is best-known as the movie that made Julia Roberts a star, but this 1990 rom-com is so much more than that…like one of the 50 Greatest Romantic Movies of All Time, too.

10. The Unexpected Fairy Godmother
What would a Cinderella story be without a fairy godmother… or in this case, godfather? The snooty Barnard Thompson (Hector Elizondo) may not carry a magic wand, but when street-hustling hooker Vivian (Roberts) needs to buy appropriate attire for Beverly Hills, Barney’s phone call to a Rodeo Drive shop is as powerful as a “bippity boppity boo.”

Lt. Dennis Croft, star of AMC’s Small Town Security, answers fan questions about his new dating prospects and why Lambchop wasn’t in his past life in Egypt.
Q: Are you seeing anyone now and do they accept your previous life? –LoloManolo
A: I think I’m building a relationship with someone at the moment… It’s long distance, so it’s on the computer… They know about my past… It can’t be a surprise to them. I’m totally up front with any individual and if that is a problem, they might as well get it over with right away… I will say that some women have agreed that I would be able to please a woman [better] than a man because of my experience in my own body as a woman. I’d be more conscious. And I did have one relationship that I had that… I can definitely agree with that.
Q: Hey Dennis! Were Christa, Brian, Irwin or Lambchop present in your
past life in Egypt? –cablerob12
A: Not that I can tell. I don’t have any affinity with them like that. [The feeling of being in a past life with someone] comes from deep within inside. There’s a feeling of familiarity that is instantly there… Not everybody crosses paths on the same level.
Q: Considering how you feel about Joan, what’s your relationship with Irwin like? –equalglass
