Risky Business Reviews

  • May 31, 2021

    Cruise anchors a classic 80s film that brings parents being gone for vacation and every teenage guy's dreams to live. Akin to Ferris, it's a feel good 90s with a little more naughtiness.

    Feels very outdated, I can appreciate it for what it is though. I couldn't find anything mayor wrong with it besides it having no charming effects on me whatsoever.

    Even today Risky Business is an exciting and very entertaining movie, with very good performances without being the typical teen movie.

    There are some noteworthy aspects to this film which include its often funny, satirical teen humour and a fine performance from Cruise, but, and I may well be in the minority when I say this, "Risky Business" leaves much to be desired with its overall message with regards to business/capitalism. It proclaims that many-a new graduate should pursue life towards business and money because money will ONLY bring happiness. This message did not seem to be played for laughs and as a result, this serious piece of cynical corporatism gradually left me feeling bitter before the film's end. Having to reflect upon it while writing this review only provoked more internal frustration.

    A pretty good early film from Tom Cruise that is funny, entertaining, and feels like an R rated version of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off".

    Tom Cruise's early performances blended with the coming-of-age genre and dark themes at the time of its release is well executed
