Cocktail (1988, USA) C-104m. ** D: Roger Donaldson. Starring Tom Cruise, Bryan Brown, Elisabeth Shue, Lisa Banes, Laurence Luckinbill, Kelly Lynch, Gina Gershon. Typical Cruise starring vehicle where he plays an ambitious young man who wants to strike it rich in N.Y.C., but fails to get a satisfying job. Then he tries his hands at barkeeping and strikes gold. Average drama now works best as a late 80s time capsule.
