Running Time: 98 mins

Risky Business is an American film about a teenage boy, whose parents go away for the weekend, and while trying to have the most fun possible, everything gets out of hand.

Right, I think we’ll stop with the Tom Cruise week, as it seems as he gets younger, his acting deteriorates, and the films are more tedious. This was a prime example: the entire story was totally predictable and overly stupid, and it was all in all very annoying to watch.

Obviously, there were some funny parts during the movie, which were relatively enjoyable, however, the overall impression of the movie was very disappointing, as the main character: Joel, was just too idiotic to really admire and support, so I did not enjoy the storyline revolving around him too much.

Overall, this gets a 4.7 because it was very very dull, predictable and annoying for me, which was not at all enjoyable, so I advise you to stay away from this film, even though it is commended highly by others.
