ABOUT THE MOVIE:
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.
The movie also featured Joe Pantoliano, Curtis Armstrong, Bronso Pinchot and more.
Tangerine Dream, used for many great movies in the early 80’s, (including Michael Mann’s 1981 masterpiece, “Thief“) provided the soundtrack which also featured: Muddy Waters, Prince (“DMSR”), Jeff Beck, Journey, Phil Collins (“In the Air Tonight”), and the song for which the film is best known, “Old Time Rock and Roll” by Bob Seger.
The film also includes “Hungry Heart” by Bruce Springsteen, “Every Breath You Take” by The Police, and “Swamp” by Talking Heads. The LP and CD versions of the soundtrack include two different versions of “Love on a Real Train (Risky Business),” both of which are different recordings from the version used in the film for the final love scene or closing credits.
The movie did over 63 million dollars at the box office that year.
