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.
