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.

    Sometimes, you just gotta say WTF. Make your move.....

    When building an '80s film collection, I suppose this one is probably a duh. See if it you have not already. You will probably like it, even if you hate Tom Cruise. I would call it a dark comedy, but the comic treatment should be visible from start to finish. It's the story of Joel, who is left alone at home while his parents take a trip, and the party madness that ensues, including Lana, a hooker that becomes a good friend by the end of the film. Good film, good story, good characters. I suppose there really isn't much more to ask for. An '80s classic. And yes, this is the one where Cruise dances in his underwear. Hahaha.
