A younger, more attractive looking Tom Cruise (old jaw/nose?) stars in this movie about a high school student determined to leave his dying steel mill town and study to be an engineer on a football scholarship. You can almost see in this film what made Tom a star in his early career, he can act. Unfortunately fame and fortune has allowed Tom to loose those right moves he needed to maintain his status as the new Paul Newman, as he was touted in the early part of his career.
Also, much to his chagrin, I am sure, you can almost catch a glimpse of Tom’s member in the scene where he deflowers Lea Thompson.
Not a bad film, predictable, but for the time and the age of the actors, it was good. C+
