Cocktail (1988)

"When he pours, he reigns."  I see what they did there and it's genius.  Tom Cruise tends bar with Barnum & Bailey swag in Cocktail.  The 1980s was the decade of excess and waiting five minutes for a libation spectacular certainly falls under that.  In between bottle juggling, there's a love story intertwined with a soundtrack that made The Beach Boys relevant again.  And your eyes are not playing tricks, Tom Cruise does have two different hairstyles in this movie thanks to reshoots.

Cocktail was filmed in New York, NY, Toronto, and Jamaica
