Risky Business is the film in which 19-year-old Tom Cruise dances around his living room in his underwear. He does this to celebrate the fact that his parents have left him alone while they go on vacation. Somewhere along the line, hooker Rebecca De Mornay, fleeing her vicious pimp, hides out in the Cruise manse. Things go from bad to worse to as Cruise inadvertently drives his father's Porsche into Lake Michigan and nearly scuttles his college recruitment interview. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
This is my most favorite movie of all time. Why, I do not know. I watched the director's cut. I am so glad they gave Curtis Armstrong the credit he deserved. He was the "steady." He inhabited his character so precisely. It was interesting to hear Tom Cruise's take on it, the director's. I would have liked to have heard the opinion of Janet Carroll, Nicholas Pryor, and Richard Masur's thoughts on being involved in the movie, if only 2nd hand. . They hit on the scene that I found most defining and so it was a satisfying director's cut in most areas. I will never get tired of seeing it.
So it's not good for children to begin with...but if you're an adult and have never seen it, it should be in queue simply because it was part of movie genre...fiber of hollywood setting trends for a series of movies that followed.
This movie brings to life every teeneagers fantasy. A young adults parents leave him home alone for a week and has the freedom to do as he pleases. When the young man meets a call girl, things turn for the worse.
