Risky Business (1983)

Risky Business Quote: “I don’t believe this! I’ve got a trig midterm tomorrow, and I’m being chased by Guido the killer pimp.” – Miles

Everybody knows the scene where Tom Cruise slides out in his tighty whiteys and lip-syncs Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock & Roll,” but we often forget that 1983’s “Risky Business” is so much more sophisticated than that.

“Risky Business” is about money, growing up, acceptance, opportunity, materialism, friendship, love, and even nihilism. It treats sex workers and transgender people with respect. And it inspired a young Big D to explore his body for the first time.

This one surfaces a lot of stories for a very drunk Shat Crew, including sexual exploits at Disney World, Gene’s concert at his mom’s house, and Big D’s trip to Amsterdam.

We also give advice on negotiating the price of services, the types of lovers to avoid, refractory periods, and the pressures of getting into college.

Plot Summary: “Risky Business” Ecstatic when his parents leave on vacation for a few days, high school senior Joel Goodsen (Tom Cruise) cuts loose with his best friend Miles. After an attempt at securing the services of a prostitute goes slightly awry, Joel hires gorgeous Lana (Rebecca De Mornay) for a night of delight. Stunned by the amount of Lana’s “bill” the next morning, Joel grows frantic after he crashes his father’s Porsche. In an effort to raise lots of money fast, a desperate Joel turns the house into a brothel.
