It's the film that first put Cruise in sunglasses and lit up his 500-watt grin. -- Grade: B+

Rating: 4/4 -- It's funny because it deals with subjects that are so touchy, so fraught with emotional pain, that unless we laugh there's hardly any way we can deal with them -- especially if we are now, or ever were, a teenage boy. Full Review

One of the finest film explorations of the end of innocence. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- A capitalist wet dream; one that we have long since woken up from screaming. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- It's easy to forget the idiosyncracies of a film that so successfully trades on adolescent male fantasies and nightmares. [Blu-ray] Full Review

...Morally dubious, effortlessly charming...

Mr. Brickman's film was and remains a strikingly original combination of biting satire and moody, romantic reverie.

Product Description:

Joel Goodson (Tom Cruise, in one of his earliest roles) is an average high school senior, apprehensive about starting college, especially with his average test scores. He decides to spice up his last high school summer by taking advantage of his parents being away and throwing a non-stop party. The next thing he knows his house becomes the local brothel thanks to the kind hooker played by Rebecca DeMornay and everything turns out differently from what he planned.

Plot Synopsis:

Joel Goodson is the type of teenager who makes his parents proud: he's nice, handsome, intelligent, and even principled. But when Joel's parents leave town for a few days, a series of events occur that will change Joel's sheltered life. For starters, he meets Lana, a hooker who proceeds to deflower our young hero, and then suggests he turn his home into a house of prostitution for one evening. Joel agrees, and just as sexy hookers and randy guys turn Joel's house upside down, a representative from Princeton University arrives, to interview Joel! How Joel handles this and other crises (losing his dad's Porsche, the loss of all his furniture, falling in love with a prostitute) will alter Joel's life forever.
