About the Movie

Tom Cruise is electrifying as Brian Flanagan, a young, confident, and ambitious bartender who, with the help of a seasoned pro (Bryan Brown), becomes the toast of Manhattan's Upper East Side. But when he moves to Jamaica and meets an independent artist (Elisabeth Shue), their vivid romance brings a new perspective to the self-centered bartender's life.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It is an inane romantic drama that only a very young, very naive bartender could love. How it got that way is difficult to understand. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 11, 2014

Rotten: Cocktail is a bottle of rotgut in a Dom Perignon box. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, May 21, 2013

Rotten: Contains nary a surprise. – Variety Staff, Variety, May 21, 2013

Rotten: The pairing of old-hand Brown and young-hand Cruise may have been meant to remind us of Cruise and Paul Newman; if so, think of this as The Color of Counterfeit Money. – Sheila Benson, Los Angeles Times, Jul 11, 2014
