“Makes you laugh hard and relive your high school days. If I were 17, I'd see it 6,000 times.” —Joel Siegel, Good Morning America
“One of the finest film explorations of the end of innocence.” —Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
Meet Joel Goodsen, an industrious college-bound seventeen-year-old, a responsible and trustworthy son. Meet Lana, young, hot, exquisite and street-smart. Joel's (Tom Cruise) two preoccupations in life are: getting into college and having sex--which until now has been just a fantasy. But Joel's parents are going on vacation and leaving him in charge of the house. Now, what Lana (Rebecca De Mornay) is going to teach Joel about sex and the free enterprise system in this contemporary coming-of-age tale is every parent's nightmare and a very Risky Business.
Writer/director Paul Brickman (Deal of the Century, Handle with Care) deftly explores the teenage dilemma of growing up good-hearted but guilt-ridden. Set in the materialistic realm of upper-middle-class kids competing to get into the "right" college, Risky Business offers perceptive and often hilarious insights into love, sex and the free enterprise system.
