Tom Cruise what a performance , I think he touched all four bases with
this one,, however Bryan Brown steals the show for me,, add in Gina
Gershon and Elisabeth Shue, what's not to like,, a college student
trying to make money has trouble finding a job,, so he finds a bar to
work at part-time while he goes to school,, their he meets an older
gentleman who gives him a chance to be the bartender, he learns all the
tricks of the trade and things seem to be looking up for our main
character, he plans on marrying his sweetheart but he has trouble
managing his relationship,, the bar, and going to school,, things start
going a little south for our mentor as well, when he get's involved
with a woman that he really shouldn't, this movie is well packed with
some action,, some lighthearted moments, a lot of serious moments,, and
tons of laughter,, this is one of tom cruise's better earlier efforts I
felt,, what an enjoyable movie to watch,
