Risky Business

It's hard to believe that Risky Business has just celebrated it's 25th anniversary and who would of known that the young Tom Cruise starring in this movie would eventually become an international phenomenon. As Warner Bros. continue to release some classic movies on the definitive format of Blu-ray, Risky Business is one of those movies that makes the grade and interestingly enough, even after so long, the movie has aged quite gracefully.

For those who have never seen the movie, it revolves around college-bound 17-year old Joel Goodson (Tom Cruise), a teenager whose life is soon about to be thrust into the world of adulthood. While his parents are away, Joel finally breaks the mould of trustworthy son and breaks his sexual frustration by hiring a beautiful escort named Lana (Rebecca DeMornay) who teaches Joel more than just sexual pleasure.

Unfortunately Joel becomes careless and has an accident with his father's Porsche and in order to procure some quick cash for repairs, he decides to hire the help of Lana and her fellow escorts in order to "pimp" these girls to his male friends. Of course fate throws Joel another spanner and when Lana's "pimp" discovers what has happened, chaos breaks lose.

Risky Business features comedy, drama and some action which truly highlighted the talents of a young Tom Cruise. Even though the movie is at times a little dated, the premise holds up strong and after all these years.

It should be noted that the transfer to Blu-ray worked well, although unfortunately cannot be compared to movies of today but nevertheless, quite impressive for a movie of this age. Blu-ray is the way to go and let's hope Warner Bros. continue releasing more classic films of yesteryear.
