Overview

Paul Brickman's Risky Business has had a large cult following since its original 1983 release. The film comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Surround, while a Spanish soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Mono. Subtitles for each of those three languages are accessible. Supplemental materials include production notes and theatrical trailers. This DVD was released in the early days of the format. The possibility exists for a deluxe treatment somewhere down the road, something Tom Cruise's many fans would appreciate.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Most well known for turning a very young Tom Cruise into a major box-office sensation, Risky Business is much more than a star-making vehicle. Ingeniously crafted and perfectly acted, the film is a subtle coming-of-age tale that captures the experience of upper-class American teenagers more astutely than any other film to emerge from the 1980s. Playing the naive high school senior Joel, Cruise turns in one of the finest performances of his career. Alongside him, Rebecca De Mornay is equally stunning as the tempestuous and savvy call girl Lana, who convinces her young client to turn his parents' house into a brothel for the local high schoolers. Beyond the acting though, Risky Business paints a tender and sophisticated portrait of sexual awakening and the experience of growing up. Expertly directed by Paul Brickman with a lush score from Tangerine Dream, Risky Business is sleek, satisfying Hollywood entertainment at its best.
