If a visitor from Mars needed a crash course in sexism, this would serve.

Cruise oozes as much charm as in Top Gun and The Colour of Money, but the mix of bar-acrobatics and Caribbean love isn't anywhere near strong enough to get you drunk.

The philosopher Hannah Arendt once wrote a book about the banality of evil. After seeing Cocktail, I want to write one about the evil of banality.

Cruise's name on the marquee is plenty to insure the success of the film, even if it is lopsided, shallow, and slips the audience a Mickey Finn at the outset.

Perhaps the best one can say for this bland concoction mixed by agents and the studio executives is that every bartender in Hollywood wants to be Tom Cruise and that suffices as an ironic subtext.

Overall, it's ridiculous, but Cocktail is a real classic of the late-80s self-help moviemaking genre.

At least Cocktail isn't offensive... unless you are insulted by losing two hours of your life -- two hours you'll never get back -- to a boring movie with the emotional depth of a Harold Robbins novel.

It's the bartending antics and musical backdrops that make the film entertaining. Without them, "Cocktail" is just another beer gone flat.

It may not be a megaton bomb, but Cocktail is definitely of the Molotov type.
