Ray-Ban Wayfarers have never looked more appealing than on a young, fresh faced Tom Cruise. I’ve never seen Tom Cruise this young, and now I know why he was such a heartthrob back then.

Left alone in the wealthy northern Chicago suburbs with the family house and Porsche at his disposal, Joel, through his scheming friends, finds himself entertaining to-die-for lady-of-the-night Lana. After meeting Joel's enthusiastic friends, Lana spots a business opportunity, and suggests bringing in some of her equally stunning colleagues. Joel is aghast at such an idea, at least until the Porsche accidentally falls into Lake Michigan, requiring a quick infusion of ready cash.

Clichés that belong to garbage (21 movies items)

"Dad's precious car ...or related paraphernalia. For some reason no one has talked about Risky Business in the last 30 years, but the cliché of destroying father's property really became a staple of the genre. So, the cliché goes: main character, a teenager, is told not to touch a valuable object, often emphatically so you remember it later, which they eventually do touch - and fuck up.
