Meet Joel Goodsen (Tom Cruise), an industrious college-bound seventeen-year-old, a responsible and trustworthy son, and meet Lana (Rebecca De Mornay), a young, hot, exquisite and street-smart call-girl. Joel's two preoccupations in life are: getting into college and having sex—which until now has been just a fantasy. But Joel's parents are going on vacation and leaving him in charge of the house. Now, what Lana is going to teach Joel about sex and the free enterprise system in this contemporary coming-of-age tale is every parent's nightmare and a very Risky Business. As the straight-arrow son who takes a walk on the wild side, Tom Cruise soared to super-stardom with his performance, while also scoring a Golden Globe nomination. Rebecca De Mornay also makes a dynamic movie debut as a liberated call girl crossing his path. They and the pitch-perfect script and direction by Paul Brickman make Risky Business “a first-class affair” (People).
