When production on Rain Man was delayed for various reasons, killed the six extra months he suddenly had on his hands by filming this dreadful film, probably the worst movie he’s ever made since becoming a star (and yes, I have seen Legend). Cruise and his hockey hair graduate from college and go in search of a top-notch job for him in the world of finance. After encountering nothing but rejection, he gets a job in a bar to stay afloat and ends up discovering he has a knack for bartending (basically he learns to do that cool spinny thing with the bottles). He then takes a job in Jamaica where the pay is better and he can save up to buy his own place. While down there he meets an American artist () who wins his heart but not his devotion, for when an older woman comes into the picture he’s smitten by her too. What will our hero do, as both of these uncharismatic, overly blow dryed women have got an equal hold on him! This crapass film is too tacky for words, though its immense box office success is solid proof that in the eighties, Cruise was capable of getting audiences to watch him in anything.
