Product Description

Product Description

The only way football star Stefan Djordjevic (Tom Cruise) will avoid a life in the blast furnaces of his bleak Pennsylvania hometown is by winning a college scholarship. Even his coach (Craig T. Nelson) dreams of parlaying a winning team into a college job far away from this graveyard of the American Dream. But it's not long before the two virtually ruin each other's chances for escape and their door to the future starts to close. Lea Thompson and Christopher Penn co-star.

Amazon.ca

Most films about high school football players usually fall into one of two categories: glossy jock romance or locker-room sex farce. This one defies the odds and scores both as decent character study and decidedly unsentimental sports melodrama. It's not only a helluva coming-of-age yarn, but also, like Paul Newman's Slapshot, it's a bracing look at the hopes and dreams of blue-collar survivors. Tom Cruise plays a mill-town football star determined to escape the same traps that ensnared his parents. Craig T. Nelson, in a terrific villain role, is the coach who takes revenge when Cruise's ambitions drift a little too close to home. Michael Chapman, Martin Scorsese's favorite cinematographer, made his directorial debut with this gritty little winner, which benefits from being shot on location in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, and which is set to a great Jennifer Warnes-Chris Thompson theme song. Lea Thompson and Christopher Penn co-star. In 1983, another Cruise vehicle had even better moves: Risky Business. --Glenn Lovell --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Because "Risky Business" gets all the attention for being Tom Cruise's breakout film, Michael Chapman's "All the Right Moves" has often been unfairly overlooked or just outright forgotten. That is a shame because Cruise's "other" coming-of-age film is a highly entertaining effort that deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as his more high profile projects.
Cruise plays Stefan Djordjevic, a high school football player who dreams of being awarded a college scholarship in order to escape a future in the steel mills. However, Stefan's short temper often gets the best of him and his relationship with his high school coach (Craig T. Nelson) becomes strained after he participates in an incident that leaves the coach's house vandalized. With the help of his high school sweetheart, Lisa (Lea Thompson), Stefan starts to get his act together and ultimately gets his life back on track.
"All the Right Moves" proves that Tom Cruise had tremendous screen presence from the very beginning. His scenes with Nelson and Thompson provide dazzling hints of greater things still to come. Nelson, who may be better known for his comedic side, turns in an especially strong supporting performance as the coach who is both Stefan's tormentor and supporter at the same time. The story of the small-town kid dreaming to escape his surroundings for better things has been told so many times on television and film in so many different ways that it would be easy to dismiss "All the Right Moves" as just another tired re-telling. However, a familiar story is still engaging if told well and this film is proof of that.

All The Right Moves was not one of Tom Cruise's more popular movies, suprising, being that he had just filmed Risky Business. There are really only a couple of ways you could love this movie: 1) You're a BIG Tom Cruise fan, 2) You're from Johnstown (where it was filmed... that's where I'm from originally), 3) You LOVE cheesy 80's movies... or, 4) You'd like to see a younger Lea Thompson naked. If you fall into any or all of these categories, this is the movie for you, my friend. A young Tom Cruise as Stephen "Steph" Georgevick struggles to make something of himself and get out of the steel town of AMPIPE (American Pipe & Steel). His dream; to be an engineer because it's "about time someone in the family has a say in what to do after the steel is made." His ticket out, a football scholarship, is jeopardized by the evillll Craig T. Nelson, his coach...The plot is your standard 80's model teen-angst-struggle-to-overcome-obstacle movie with the soundtrack to match. Also, if you're a big fan of Chris Penn, then this is your best bet...

This movie has a good young cast. From this point on the word "good" will no longer appear in this review. This movie is more like a "nice try" picture. As these types of pictures go, it is cliche ridden and dial down the center. From the opening shot of the film one thing is clear: there is a factory, and it does not look like a slap happy good time to work there.
Young Tom Cruise plays Stef, a factory worker's son in a factory workers' town. The only way out of this town, hence not working at the factory the rest of your life, is to get a football scholarship to college. Stef happens to be good at football, so he won't have to work at the factory right? Well, it is clear that he and the coach (Craig T. Nelson) are not always on the same page. So, of course, the pressure is building. The best schools aren't calling, his girlfriend (Lea Thompson) won't sleep with him, and his best friend (Chris Penn, also a football player) is having a baby (which means he will work in the factory). Something has to give? It does, in the big game. Where else?
This movie is just perfectly ordinary. The attempt to get into the characters mostly makes no sense. And when it does it is just typical diologue we have heard a thousand times before. It seemed like Cruise was almost forced to self-destruct and then someone decided that it couldn't end on a downer. The ending is laughable it is so forced and out of place. With a cast like this, given they were young, I expected more.
So why did Cruise do this movie? Good question. He made another film the same year that dealt with similar subject matter, a teenager trying to get into college and the powers that are working against him. It is called Risky Business and it successful in all the areas that All the Right Moves fails. See Risky Business, forget this movie. I'm sure Cruise would like to.

Tom Cruise was a busy man in 1983. With the success of Taps 2 years earlier, he took a year off, then came out with 4 movies in the next year. They was Risky Business, The Outsiders, Losin It and All the Right Moves. My fav of all those was All the Right moves.
Cruise plays Stefan, a kid who plays for the Ampipe HS football team as a cornerback, in backwoods Pennsylvania. It is a one industry (steel) town and if the kids can't get away from there, they usually end up in the steelworks. Cruise doesn't want to work there. He has higher goals of being an Engineer. And football is the only way out, and a few schools have offered him a full scholarship.
His girlfriend is played by Lea Thompson, and she is a smart, insecure girl who is also talented in music, but trapped because schools don't give scholarships to music students who aren't brillant. There is always a hint of jealousy in her mannerisms as she watches the "dumb jocks" ride to the schools that she will never get into..and it is smartly portrayed near the end of the movie.
The "dumb jocks" here are the anti-stereotypes that are seen in movies today. They aren't slick, omnipotent acting jerks. Stefan and Brian (played well by Christopher Penn) are sensitive, uncertain and shy people. The other players become sidetracked as well, such as Salvucci who becomes a criminal, rather than a star or Shadow (played by Leon) who is so worried that he won't get in anywhere (but gets into Virginia Tech).
The core of the movie is the relationship between Coach (Craig T. Nelson) and Stefan. It is rocky in the beginning.
