Good movie Tom cruise gateway movie to becoming a top dog actor
It was a favorite back in the day. It’s not as good as I remember but still a fun watch! Tom is so young & Elizabeth is adorable.
Not the best Tom Cruise performance, but if you like Tom and like 80s movies hey.... it’s worth the watch.
It isn't perfect at all, but that is not the point this is so enjoyble and so engaging, and for sure so nice
Crazy movie about the 80s ambition and the prospect of endless growth. I can see why this movie catapulted Cruise to fame. Great music.
Lots of fun and visually interesting, but the plot is paper thin and Cruise can only do so much heavy lifting
Cheesy 80s movie that would never be made today. Good for a laugh and how crazy things get. Watch with friends.
Vapid from start to finish. It's hard to root for anyone here. Cruise's charm and the film's flashiness try to hide how utterly empty it is.
Eh. It’s a corny 80s movie. Not the worst one though… still really bad at points
The best thing about the movie is the soundtrack. This is a music video about flair bartenders masquerading as a movie. Treat it as such.
