RISKY BUSI­NESS

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

NINE, Tues­day, 1pm, M ( 1983)

Thomas Cruise Mapother IV ( left) re­ceived his first taste of com­mer­cial suc­cess and pop- cul­ture ref­er­ence, mostly for danc­ing around in a pair of un­der­pants to Bob Seger’s Old Time Rock ’ n’ Roll, in this teen- fan­tasy com­edy. Young Tom plays a rich- kid about to en­ter col­lege get­ting his kicks in the fam­ily home while his par­ents are away. The sit­u­a­tion be­comes dif­fi­cult when a beau­ti­ful op­por­tunis­tic pros­ti­tute ( Re­becca DeMor­nay) de­cides to stay on af­ter the party fin­ishes. Cruise gives glimpses of the charisma that was to flour­ish, but over­all it’s just another teen flick.
