It's Tom Cruise week in Sweetie Land, and we decided to drink a couple of cocktails AND watch the 1988 HIT (slash in the running for best worst movie ever) Cocktail! Cocktail tells the story of young, cocky Brian Flannigan, who is fresh out of the army with lots of ideas yet little real life experience. So he moves to New York City and starts bartending, meets a toxic friend, knocks up a girl under a sex waterfall in Jamaica, and comes to the realization that life sucks but if you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything! Sweety had never seen this movie before (gasp) but Sweetie thought it was cool AF when she was eight, so we had a good time making fun of its bad writing and 80s cliches. We'll chat all about Sweetie's crush on Tom Cruise, how odd it feels to look back on the 80s yuppie culture, and Sweety tells a fun story about how she almost became a bartender but got too scared people would puke all over her.
Interested in joining our Sweetie Bookclub? We'll be reading a book a month (or possibly whenever we feel like it) tied into some of the movies we have covered or will cover! Chat with us on Twitter or Instagram for more details!
