Review

This is a pretty decent flick, if you don't go into it expecting it to be something it's not. This is not high art. But it doesn't pretend to be. It's like a lot of films, where the premise is better than the story. A film about showoff bartenders in Manhattan. OK, but then you've got to build a movie around that. Their antics are photogenic, but it takes them about four minutes to make two drinks... read more

I already saw this movie but since it was such a long time ago, I was quite eager to check it out again. Well, I have to admit that it was actually not as bad as I remembered but, even so, it was still rather weak though. Above all, the whole concept was rather flimsy. Even worse, it seems that the makers had no real clue what it was supposed to be about. Basically, it seemed to be about a young m... read more

“Brian Flannigan (Tom Cruise) is a highly successful bartender who wants to establish his own business with the help of his mentor Doug (Bryan Brown) and the Coughlin Laws. During which, Brian forms a relationship with a beautiful diner waitress Jordan (Elizabeth Shue), the daughter of a rich family in Park Avenue. The first third of Cocktail, where Brian and Doug team together to run the business, was the best part. As the two leads talked about saving money and teaching each other about bar tricks, I begged for more. Maybe they could do a cocktail recipe exam, go over protocol behind the counter, dealing with intoxicated patrons, or rehearse these bar tricks night after night. Instead, Jordan showed up and the movie switched from being a unique story about bar entrepreneurship to a generi” read more

Movies the giraffe watched in 2018: September (31 movies items)

"First viewing - Sept. 28th I thought I'd take one last opportunity for the year of checking out a Tom Cruise movie I hadn't seen, and, well let's just say I'm glad I didn't watch this one earlier in my run as it may have derailed my efforts. It's really dated and while there's enough going on that it kept my attention it's all ultimately forgettable. Amusing at times, but I could've gone on ignoring it. "

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: June (14 movies items)

"June 3 "Days get shorter and shorter, nights longer and longer, before you know it, your life is just one long night with a few comatose daylight hours." This movie is actually somewhat underrated. It's no masterpiece or anything, but it's a charming movie. It was a decent romance story and it has some funny lines. I also liked Tom Cruise's character here and Elizabeth Shue who was in her prime when this came out was also really good. Overall, I really enjoyed this movie and I don't think it"
