Tom Cruise is electrifying as Brian Flanagan, a young, confident, and ambitious bartender who, with the help of a seasoned pro (Bryan Brown -- GORILLAS IN THE MIST, F/X 2), becomes the toast of Manhattan's Upper East Side. But when he moves to Jamaica and meets an independent artist (Elisabeth Shue -- ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING, HOLLOW MAN), their vivid romance brings a new perspective to the self-centered bartender's life. Sizzling with high-powered performances and a #1 hit soundtrack, the box office blockbuster COCKTAIL has it all!

Cruise plays Brian Flanagan, fresh out of the military and ready to make his fortune. He happens to meet Doug Coughlin, bartender and entertainer, who takes the young man under his wing. This is no simple pour the booze movie; it's guys making the most of the attention to attract great tips and lovely women. Along the way Brian and Doug have their bust up - over said women - and Brian ends up in paradise where he meets Jordan, the love of his life... well... Doug shows up - of course - and everything goes wrong... or right? In the end, these buddies end up helping one another end up where they were meant to be, even when their ending isn't picture perfect. But great drinks, great arguments, and love keep the film moving.
Maybe it's not one of Cruise's best movies. Maybe it is. I love it. It's a great rainy afternoon film, without the heart stopping action of a lot of his stuff. It's fun, light - sort of - and the only way Cruise can make bartending interesting.

Q: What's cooler than a bar man who can juggle with bottles?
A: eh Nothing!
It's a shame Tom Cruise's character dies after being attacked by those bikers. But other than that I really love this movie because it's about my two favourite things, drinking & 1 night stands
