Essentially, `Cocktail' is nothing more than your average popcorn flick'.
However, it is a darn good one. What was surprisingly nice about this film
was that it actually had a mature amount of depth to it. It is also
overflowing with big-name stars such as Tom Cruise (Risky Business),
Elizabeth Shue (Adventures in Babysitting), and Bryan Brown (The Thorn
Birds). But, the supporting characters happen to be so fascinating that at
times it's hard to focus on anything else. In addition to this, the film
has glorious cinematography- especially the scenes set in the tropics.
Another thing `Cocktail' has going for it is its soundtrack: great 80s
music!! At its heart, `Cocktail' is nothing more than the same romantic
fluff you have seen hundreds of times before- but it is presented in such a
nice package that who really cares?
