A [[TheEighties 1988 film]] starring TomCruise, Elisabeth Shue, and Bryan Brown. Cruise plays Brian Flanagan, a former soldier returning home to New York City. Brian hopes to make it big on Wall Street, only to be told by every investment firm in town not to waste his time. He has no college education, no job prospects, and no future. His part-time bartending job becomes his only option. But even becoming one of New York's top bartenders won't make him a millionaire. What might? Marrying a rich woman...
