BRAND NEW 2K MASTER! Hollywood icon Tom Cruise (Valkyrie) in his first starring role has everything to gain—and a certain something to lose—when he crosses paths with Shelley Long (Hello Again) in this rambunctious road-trip comedy set in the wild and wacky sixties. When all-American high-schooler Woody (Cruise) and his Sinatra-obsessed pal Dave (Jackie Earle Haley, Watchmen) decide that it’s time to lose their virginity, they enlist the help of their “more experienced” friend Spider (John Stockwell, Christine) and head south-of-the-border. Now, in a hilariously raunchy search for cheap booze—and even cheaper thrills—the intrepid trio will run into fast-food floozies, crooked cops and a close encounter with a doubting would-be divorcée (Long) that will change Woody’s life forever. Wonderfully directed by Curtis Hanson (L.A. Confidential, The Bedroom Window) with a screenplay by B.W.L. Norton (Convoy).
