The movie is wild, unpredictable and full of realistic performances. Cruise captures shy-hormonal adolescence beautifully, while De Mornay makes the usual hooker-with-heart-of-gold role into something intelligent, compassionate and yet not altogether moral. Highly amusing scenes such as Cruise dancing in his underwear to Bob Seger's "Old Time Rock N' Roll" make this understandably a classic. But the climax, involving Cruise's house being turned into a brothel for a night, is a hilarious doozy. Don't expect me to explain how it get's to that point. Just watch it! Then you'll find that it makes some perfect (albeit strange) sense.
