I saw this movie when I was 9 yrs.old. I am not sure why my mother let me watch "Cocktail" that young. But, being a young girl I was absolutely in loved with Tom Cruise. Now that I am 20 and in college, I still watch "Cocktail" over and over and over again. It is my favorite movie in the whole wide world. Maybe the acting wasn't the greatest since Tom was waiting on the Rainman script, but being a 9 yr old the movie captured my heart. I watch it now and I still put it back in the box with a smile on my face. "Cocktail" is a movie that has unique parts in it with the bar scenes and the poems. The waterfall was cool, and especially the where Tom said that he would never be spooked again. I was a twin and it just touchs me when Shue said that she was having twins. It has many events that every person would want in a relationship but reality is so much different than fantasy. It is a great movie if someone is into a night of fun, fantasy and romance.
