3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable for What it Is + Great "Oldies" Soundtrack, November 27, 2010
This review is from: Cocktail (DVD)
Tom Cruise was good in this and he and Bryan Brown had great chemistry. Their bartending scenes are fun until the plot weighs it all down a bit.

The story of an attractive, ambitious young man chasing wealth and women (preferably one and the same) has been done a million times. So has the story, in various ways, of showing that those goals are not all they're cracked up to be. It's a nice love story, with good performances and an engaging sound track. No Academy Awards, but a good movie to enjoy of an evening. (Nice to see pros like Elizabeth Shue and Lawrence Luckenbill in the mix, too).

Best part, imo, though...the soundtrack of "oldies but goodies", including Little Richard on rock n'rolling "Tutti Fruitti", the Fab T-Bird's "Powerful Stuff rock/blues, Bobby McFerrin with "Don't Worry, Be Happy" John Cougar Mellancamp's ocver of Buddy Holly's "Rave On", the Beach Boys with "Kokomo",
"When Will I Be Loved", and more. Good fun.
