Materialistic Brian Flanagan (Tom Cruise) teams with veteran bartender Doug Coughlin (Bryan Brown) and takes the bar scene by storm; the duo dazzles patrons, mixing drinks while dancing and charming the ladies. But a falling out prompts Brian to move to Jamaica. After moving, Brian falls for a New York waitress (Elisabeth Shue), but their romance is threatened by the barkeep's fling with a rich fashion exec (Lisa Banes).

Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that sex and alcohol consumption play a large part in this movie; the R rating is appropriate. The film features simulated sex with two different women, with little nudity. There are a couple of fistfights, and the aftermath of a suicide is shown. Excessive drinking is integral to the movie's plot and yet there are no particular consequences beyond a hangover.
