As students at the United States Navy's elite fighter weapons school compete to be best in the class, one daring young pilot learns a few things from a civilian instructor that are not taught in the classroom.
Incarcerated and charged with murder, David Aames Jr. is telling the story of how he got to where he is to McCabe, the police psychologist. That story includes: being the 51% shareholder of a major publishing firm, which he inherited from his long deceased parents; the firm's board, appointed by David Aames Sr., being the 49% shareholders who would probably like to see him gone as they see him as being too irresponsible and immature to run the company; his best bro friendship with author, Brian Shelby; his "friends with benefits" relationship with Julie Gianni, who saw their relationship in a slightly different light; his budding romance with Sofia Serrano, who Brian brought to David's party as his own date and who Brian saw as his own possible life mate; and being in an accident which disfigured his face and killed the person who caused the accident. But as the story proceeds, David isn't sure what is real and what is a dream/nightmare as many facets of the story are incompatible to ... Written by
At the club, Sofia wears a t-shirt that says "St. Rose." Along with being the patron saint of Latin and South America , St. Rose is the Patron Saint of Vanity. St. Rose used to pray: "Lord, increase my sufferings, and with them increase Your love in my heart." See more »
As David returns to his car the morning after his night with Sofia, Julie approaches, having waited for him in her car down the street. How could Julie have known where to find him? Julie didn't know Sofia. Julie was still at the party when David and Sofia left. And from the setting and street sign it's clear that Sofia lives near the Manhattan Bridge (Water St.) in Brooklyn, an entirely different part of New York City than David (who lives in The Dakota across from Central Park), so Julie couldn't possibly have found him by just driving around searching. Brian could have told Julie where Sofia lives during the party, but he just met Sofia earlier that day and it would have been an odd thing to do, if he even knew Sofia's address yet himself.

"The sweet is never as sweet without the sour." This quote was essentially the theme for the movie in my opinion. Tom Cruise plays a young man who was handed everything in his life. He takes things for granted and it comes around full swing in this great movie with a superb twist. This film will keep you engaged in the plot and unable to pause it to take a bathroom break.
Its a movie that really makes you step back and look at your life and how you live it. You cannot really appreciate the better things in life (the sweet), like love, until you have experienced the bad (the sour). The theme will really get you to "open your eyes".
Only complaint is that the movie gets very twisted at points and is hard to really understand. I think the end is perfect though. I recommend you watch it and see for yourself.
