Half-kidding plot-line 2, July 23rd

To be filmed seven years from now.

Julia Roberts is neurotic, old, abrasively insecure. Richard Gere's business adversaries denigrate him until he can't live with their merciless whore-jokes anymore. He files for divorce. It's never made clear to Julia (or us) how he tricked her into the pre nup. While expelling her from his life, he carefully side-steps any awareness of her addiction to painkillers and fashion.

End of Act 1.

New Pretty Woman, played by Reese Witherspoon (or someone younger), has just landed a job as his co-worker's secretary. They hit it off nicely, but when she learns of his twenty year dalliance with a ho it upsets her puritanical values and sends her packing.

By the film's end, however, Richard has worked his magic, convincing both her and her Amish Daddy it was just a phase he went through.

They get married.

On their honeymoon, he convinces her to try anal sex.

The End.

(This sets us up for number 3, when Gere turns 80 and the vagaries of the Sunset Strip beckon again.)

maybe a turning-point for act 1: while gere is at wit's end with the whore jokes, roberts, in the depths of her self-loathing, asks him if they can give anal sex a try. he can scarcely hide his disgust and it puts the nail in the coffin on their marriage.

I thought that already happened in the first one. What else is "I'll do anything, except kiss on the lips," supposed to mean?

But I love it. I'm taking your suggestion!
