Okay, that movie with Tom Cruise only was good because it was Tom Cruise. Not far after Top Gun, and so what could you possibly do if you were a young woman with an awesome bod and super cute personality (neither of which I realized at the time) and you loved cute men???? Be in love with Tom Cruise, of course!!! And so Top Gun? That was the shit.
But Cocktail. Seriously, that earned generous affection simply because it was Tom Cruise. Cute? yes. Toxic? yes. The too-rapidly-evolving character from dumbass to greatguy? Right. Cocktail is a gift of many. Because, seriously, if a cocktail is not intellectual and mature and scintillating, while seeming so full of coolness that permeates the skin, it would not be hot. And for some dumbass reason, Cocktail was hot.
