Tom Cruise ’80s Movie Star Series Episode 6

Coughlin’s Law: the bar is always open when you set it really low.

Was heartthrob Tom Cruise writing his own obituary when he traded fighter jets for martini shakers, and agreed to star in Cocktail – the totally blitzed bartender drama crowned Worst Picture of 1988 by the Golden Raspberry Awards?  Don’t worry… be happy you at least get to soak up the sage advice of TGI Friday’s resident philosopher Bryan Brown, while enjoying Sex On The Beach with Elisabeth Shue. Jakob, Stuart, and Arnie get there fast and then take it slow for donors who wanna go back to the 80s for Now Playing’s Gold Level Tom Cruise series.

After being discharged from the Army, Brian Flanagan moves back to Queens and takes a job in a bar run by Doug Coughlin, who teaches Brian the fine art of bar-tending. Brian quickly becomes a patron favorite with his flashy drink-mixing style, and Brian adopts his mentor's cynical philosophy on life and goes for the money.
