Today, Tom Cruise is a star because 30 years ago he danced with his pants off to Bob Seger.

Joel Goodson (Cruise) is the son of wealthy parents who have left town and trust in their son. The rules were simple: don’t touch the stereo...and don’t drive the Porsche. But irresponsible friends, Miles (Curtis “Booger” Armstrong) and Barry (Bronson “Don’t Call Me Balki” Pinchot), soon convince him otherwise, and next thing Joel knows he’s getting stoned, raiding the liquor cabinet, and running a call girl agency out of his parents’ home.

This movie is crazy fun and INSAAAAANELY sexy. Rebecca De Mornay is the object of many a man’s (and woman’s, no doubt) affections as a result of her...(to call it seductive would be an understatement) seductive turn as the prostitute that every white boy off the lake wants.

Cruise shows a real tour-de-force as the corrupted rich kid who comes into his own opposite an (always) 1980s menacing Joe Pantoliano as De Mornay’s pimp, Guido.

Cars will crash, stereo levels will rise...and clothes will fall in RISKY BUSINESS. (Greg MacLennan)

Look for more Summer of '83 titles all through June!
