When mom and dad leave town, an enterprising Chicago teen (21-year-old Cruise in his star-making role) gets in over his head with a kind-hearted prostitute (Rebecca De Mornay) in writer-director Paul Brickman’s sparkling coming-of-age comedy.

“****. It is one of the smartest, funniest, most perceptive satires in a long time. It not only invites comparison with The Graduate, it earns it. Here is a great comedy about teenage sex.”—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
