OneTruePod’s review published on Letterboxd:
Did people take this seriously when it came out? Like are there people who genuinely love Risky Business? Has there ever been a movie more hinged on upperclass white male privilege? Why is there no humor whatsoever, and why do these high school boys act and dress like 50 year olds?
The car falls in the river 58 minutes into the movie with 40 minutes remaining. That’s 58 minutes of super boring setup for the inciting incident that leads to the party. It’s not what you want.
Also, I absolutely did not need the weirdly artsy train sex scene. That’s when I realized how seriously this writer/director was taking this film which should have just been a fun high school romp. Feeling like this movie is the result of an ego who should probably have had another writer or director collaborate with him.
