Meet Joel Goodsen, an industrious college-bound 17-year-old. Responsible, trustworthy son. But he's been good for too long. Joel's parents are away and he's in charge of the house. They trust him. Maybe they shouldn't. 'Risky Business' slyly explores the teen dilemma of growing up good-hearted but guilt-ridden.In his star-making role as Joel, Tom Cruise is a charmer-with-conscience that foreshadows Jerry Maguire. Rebecca de Mornay makes a dynamic movie debut as liberated call girl Lana.
It was made a long time ago...

I hadn’t seen this for ages. I knew it was made a long time ago, but it was still a bit of a shock. Cruise is so young, smoking is cool, making money is even cooler - even the Porsche looks dated, and in a bad way. Possibly the weirdest thing was seeing Joe Pantoliano with his own hair. A historical document.
