From Amazon.co.uk

Little did Tom Cruise know that he would become a box-office superstar after he cranked up some Bob Seeger and played air guitar in his underwear. But there's more to this 1983 hit than the arrival of a hot young star. Making a stylish debut, writer-director Paul Brickman crafted a subtle satire of crass materialism wrapped in an irresistible plot about a crafty high schooler named Joel (Cruise) who goes into risky business with the beguiling prostitute Lana (Rebecca De Mornay) while his parents are out of town. Joel turns his affluent Chicago-suburb home into a lucrative bordello and forms a steamy personal and professional partnership with Lana, but only as long as the two can avoid the vengeful pimp Guido (Joe Pantoliano) and keep their customers happy. A signature film of the 1980s, Risky Business still holds up thanks to Cruise's effortless charm and the movie's timeless appeal as an adolescent male fantasy. --Jeff Shannon

Synopsis

The quintessential coming-of-age story turns 25! High school senior Joel Goodsen (Tom Cruise) is tired of being Mr. All-American and faces such traumatic decisions such as which Ivy League college to attend. His life gets turned around when he meets a sexy call girl (Rebecca De Mornay) who transforms his house into a brothel while his parents are away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes You've Gotta Say, What The.... 23 Nov 2008
By DL Productions UK TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
In the 80s, we saw a spate of movies catering for young men, teen movies of sorts, that would usually have some sexual element to it. An example of this was the Porkies series, although it's not as mature as this movie, the element of fantasy, and sexual interaction was a big part of the movie.

Risky Business was an interesting start for young Tom Cruise, who, at the time wasn't that well known. His co-star, beautiful Rebecca De Mornay was also rather unknown, so director Paul Brickman was taking a risk with them.

Tom Cruise plays Joel Goodsen, a young guy from the burbs of Chicago. He's obsessed with his grades and nervous he's going to ruin everything for himself. He doesn't really like messing around, but when his parents go away on holiday - his pal Miles gets him a call girl - but he really doesn't like her. She suggests lovely Lana, a sexy blonde with beautiful eyes - and the magic starts.

Joel helps her get rid of a creep called Guido - who she says is her manager but we all know he's just a pimp - but what he doesn't realise is he's getting himself into bother, hence why it's a Risky Business.

This is one of Tom's finest movies, the good old days when he wasn't taking himself far too seriously, a golden age where he just made movies - and the better for it. His portrayal of Joel is great, his nervousness is perfectly on par with teens of his age. Rebecca is also great as Lana, and really fits the role well.

The best scene has to be the one where he's on the train making love to Lana, the use of Phil Collins' "In The Air Tonight" is really good, and the way it's not explicit lets you use your imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great 80s teen movie.. 10 May 2012
Format:Blu-ray
this is a another movie that takes me back to my teen years.. but it is a great movie and so good to see tom cruise as tom cruise really before he got famous and started to over act his roles like MISSION IMPOSSIBLE 2 and onwards... tom cruise was great as this wimpy mommas boy who never took risks then suddenly he invites a call girl(rebecca de mornay) and everthing goes wrong he has has to get it right b4 his parents come back from vacation.. its just 1 disaster after another.. the action is fast exspecially the chase with the porsche.. and the soundtrack is awesome.. this is another great 80s movie that never gets shown anymore on british tv.. this is wat a teen movie should be like .. forget AMERICAN PIE movies ..there garbage compared to this.. 10/10-

If you find Mr Cruise a bit arrogant for your liking and avoid his films, don't avoid this one for that reason. He's cocky for sure, the part demands it, but not in the same uber confident way he now is. In fact as his debut it probably suggests he's rather a good actor, if he'd just stop playing himself (which he does here too, to be fair)

It really is a very entertaining film - perfect for teens as well as adults. It's 18 but I'd say 15 would be more than adequate and I would not mind it being a 12, although it will be enjoyed more by the over 15's I think. Very little nudity; one rather steamy scene and some adult themes about call girls, but it won't tell you anything you didn't know.

Really entertaining, nothing heavy duty. There are supposed to be deep meaningful undertones to the film if you look at the directors cut and explanation, but don't let that worry you!

3.0 out of 5 stars Cruise off to a good start 6 Dec 2000
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Three years before the massive blockbuster that was Top Gun, a young Tom Cruise starred in a little known movie called Risky Business. He puts in an excellent and believable performance as Joel Goodson, a young do-gooder who is left to look after the house when his parents go on holiday. One scene in this movie has been copied countless times, most notably The Simpsons, see if you can spot it. The film is ok to watch the first time but after that it will gather on dust on your shelves, unless you are a big Tom Cruise fan and in that case I would insist that you buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Cruise 6 July 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
To be honest I cringe at the type of movies Cruise makes these days but it's obvious from his great performance in Risky Business, that occasionally he can pick a good role. I'll be 39 next month and watched this film for the first time in over 20 years last night. As the dvd entered my machine, I couldn't help thinking this film maybe rubbish now but It surprised me just how good it is. Helped no end by the superb cast, not just Cruise & De Mornay but Curtis Armstrong & Bronson Pinchot are both hilarious and who could forget the great Joe Pantoliano! This was a favourite of mine as a teenager but me and my friends were more interested in De Mornay and emulating the guys playing cards & smoking cigars than anything else. Considering the time it was made, the film has dated much better than other movies of the 80's. The Tangerine Dream soundtrack also deserves mention. As for the features (25th anniversary dvd), a very good half hour retrospective with almost everyone involved. Also a commentary featuring Brickman, Cruise & Avnet, worth a listen if you have time but I definitely recommend the retrospective. Alternate ending which director Brickman prefers & theatrical trailer. However, I already owned the standard dvd and the picture quality is the same.
