A Quarter Century of ‘Risky Business’

By: Celebuzz / September 16, 2008

Time to throw on the Ray-Bans and dance around to Bob Seger in your tighty-whities; the 25th Anniversary DVD edition of Tom Cruise’s landmark movie Risky Business hits stores Wednesday.

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a quarter century since the teen coming-of-age comedy came out, or that this simple tale of a suburban lad struggling to get into a hooker’s panties and land a spot in an Ivy League college launched one of the most successful and prolific careers in film history.

The special anniversary edition’s bonus features include commentary from Cruise, screen tests, a director’s cut of the final scene and a new documentary, The Dream Is Always the Same: The Story of Risky Business.

Sounds like a lot to absorb. But then, sometimes you just gotta say, “What the f*ck.”
