Overview
Meet Joel Goodsen. Industrious, college-bound 17-year-old. Responsible, trustworthy son. But he's been good for too long. Joel's parents are away and he's in charge of the house. They trust him. Maybe they shouldn't.

"One of the best American comedies of recent years" (Roger Ebert), Risky Business slyly explores the teen dilemma of growing up good-hearted but guilt-ridden. In his starmaking role as Joel, Tom Cruise is a charmer-with-conscience that foreshadows Jerry Maguire. Rebecca de Mornay makes a dynamic movie debut as liberated call girl Lana. They and writer/director Paul Brickman make Risky Business "a first-class affair" (People).
