More Details

Notes:
Shot on location in New York City, New Jersey, Toronto, and Port Antonia, Jamaica, in Metrocolor. Film had an estimated budget of $17 million. Tom Cruise studied the flashy bartender moves he used in the film from several employees of T.G.I. Friday restaurants. He was subsequently called to give a sworn statement (in June of 1994) in a sexual-harassment case against two of the chain's managers.
