In a 2009 interview with the A.V. Club, Bronson Pinchot said his strongest memory of working with 20-year-old Tom Cruise on this film was that (in Pinchot's words), "he was tense and made constant, constant unrelated homophobic comments, like, 'You want some ice cream, in case there are no gay people there?' I mean, his lingo was larded with the most . . . there was no basis for it. It was like, 'It's a nice day, I'm glad there are no gay people standing here.' Very, very strange." In the same interview, Pinchot said working with Cruise was "weird" and called Cruise "the biggest bore on the face of the Earth." See more »

The dream is always the same. Instead of going home, I go to the neighbors'. I ring, but nobody answers. The door is open, so I go inside. I'm looking around for the people, but nobody seems to be there. And then I hear the shower running, so I go upstairs to see what's what. Then I see her; this... girl, this incredible girl.

First, with respect to continuity, I just watched the movie (with my teen-aged daughter) and the plates on the Porsche on the way home from the garage is clearly Illinois and NOT New Jersey. In any event, my daughter and her friend were watching "The Girl Next Door" and I spent the whole movie thinking that this was very derivative and my daughter and her friend had never even heard of "Risky Business," so we watched it. My daughter really liked the movie and agreed that her movie was a pale imitation (though it was cute). I think a lot of teen movies are now just trying to shock as opposed to telling an interesting and intricate story. This movie made Tom Cruise (with whom I very annoyed given his treatment of Nicole and his display on the Today Show - medication can help a chemical imbalance), but the movie is a classic. I loved it when I first saw it as a young adult (25) and I still think it is one of the best teen movies ever made.
