Greatest Movie About Flair Bartenders Starring Tom Cruise Ever Made.Coughlin’s Law: Anything else is always something better. Unless it’s this movie, in which case, you’ve reached the pinnacle of cinematic achievement. Sure, it’s about 20 mins too long. Sure, there are more plot holes than a swiss cheese shop. Sure, Tom Cruise could use an eyebrow threading. But all of these faults meld together in a vortex of Cruise-ridden chaos to create one of the finest movie watching experiences of all time. Pour a couple cocktails for you and your friends (because beer is for breakfast), and watch this movie together - I promise it won’t disappoint..Score: 5/5

Alla ricerca di un lavoro, il giovane e ambizioso Brian Flanagan, dopo aver fallito nel campo della finanza e della pubblicità accetta un posto da barista in un modesto locale. Convinto dal suo collega Doug che è più redditizio fare il barman che l'agente di borsa, Brian mette a punto un gustoso cocktail, facendo diventare i due i beniamini dei ricchi di Manhattan, trasformando il loro lavoro in vere e proprie performances da spettacolo.

Après avoir quitté l'armée, Brian Flanagan essaie de se trouver un boulot à New-York, mais il n'a aucun diplôme. Il décide d'entamer des études tout en étant serveur dans un bar. La solution de facilité, pense-t-il. Mais ce boulot n'est pas aussi facile qu'il le pense. Le patron, Douglas Koglan, décide de lui apprendre tous les "trucs" : les façons de servir, les astuces de consommation, etc. En peu de temps, Brian devient très populaire.

Nach dem Wehrdienst will Brian Flanagan einen Marketingjob in New York bekommen. Dafür braucht er zuerst einen Collegeabschluss. Während er Wirtschaft studiert, hält er sich als Barkeeper über Wasser. Cocktails mixen ist gar nicht so einfach! Sein neuer Boss, Douglas Coughlin, weiht ihn in die Geheimnisse der Zunft ein. Gemeinsam werden sie die berühmtesten Barkeeper der Stadt. Beide wollen irgendwann ihre eigenen Top-Bars haben. Um sich den Traum leisten zu können, fängt Brian an, in Jamaika zu arbeiten, wo er besser verdienen kann. In der Tiki-Bar begegnet er Jordan Mooney, einer jungen, hübschen und aufstrebenden Künstlerin aus Amerika, die mit ihrer Freundin aus New York Urlaub macht. Die beiden verbringen eine tolle Zeit miteinander und verlieben sich...

Молодой, самоуверенный и амбициозный Брайан Фланаган всегда мечтал сделать карьеру, которая дала бы ему власть, развлечения и быстрые деньги. Однако когда выясняется, что крупные фирмы вовсе не спешат брать его на работу, холодная реальность опустевшего кошелька заставляет его согласиться на работу бармена.Растворившись в соблазнительном мире легких денег и секса, Брайан становится настоящей звездой ночного Манхэттена. Все меняется, когда он влюбляется в независимую и уверенную в себе Джордан, которая совсем не похожа на его смазливых клиенток. Наконец он отыскал женщину, которая знает, что такое настоящая любовь, а самое главное, кто же такой на самом деле Брайан Фланаган.

Askerden döndükten sonra New York'ta iş arayan Brian Flanigan (Tom Cruise), üniversite diploması olmadığından gece okuluna gitmeye başlıyor. Bu arada barmen olarak part time bir iş buluyor. Patronu Doug Coughlin (Bryan Brown) işin püf noktalarını öğretince, ikisi de şehrin en popüler barmenleri oluyorlar. Para biriktirip, işin az ama paranın çok olduğu Jamaica'ya gidiyorlar. Orada Jordan (Elisabeth Shue)'la tanışıp, ona aşık oluyor. Ancak zengin ve yaşlı biriyle ilişkiye girince Jordan onu terk ediyor.

Wanneer Brian uit het leger komt wil hij werk zoeken in New York, maar zonder diploma's komt hij niet ver. Dan komt hij te werken in een bar en van zijn baas Douglas leert hij alle kneepjes van het vak en samen worden ze de populairste barmannen van de stad. Brian wil echter graag zelf een cocktailbar beginnen en vertrekt naar Jamaica waar hij de knappe kunstenares Jordan leert kennen.

Miután leszerelt, a jóképű, ifjú és ambiciózus Brian Flanigan (Tom Cruise) New Yorkba megy, hogy munkát találjon. De nem talál, diploma nélkül ugyanis nem megy. Beiratkozik, tehát az egyetemre és hogy fedezni tudja a költségeit, mixerkedik egy belvárosi bárban. Itt találkozik Doug Coughlinnal, aki a szakma legapróbb fortélyaira is megtanítja, míg végül a város leghíresebb mixerei lesznek. Brian immár egy saját, exkluzív koktélbárról álmodik, ám ehhez még több pénz kell, mint az egyetemhez. Jamaikába utazik, a mixerek paradicsomába, ahol szépek a nők és vastagok a "jattok". A szépen kitervelt részleteket azonban meglehetősen összekuszálja egy váratlan fordulat: Brian fülig szerelmes lesz.

Sleeping Dogs (1977) summary, synopsis, reviews
Sleeping Dogs (1977)Thriller2018

Adapted from C.K. Stead's novel Smith's Dream, Sleeping Dogs almost single-handedly kickstarted the New Zealand New Wave, demonstrating that homegrown feature films could resonate with both local and international audiences, and launching the big-screen careers of director Roger Donaldson (No Way Out, Species) and Sam Neill (Jurassic Park, Possession). Neill - in his first lead role in a feature - plays Smith, a man escaping the break-up of his marriage by finding isolation on an island off the Coromandel Peninsula. As he settles into his new life, the country is experiencing its own turmoil: an oil embargo has led to martial law and civil war, into which Smith reluctantly finds himself increasingly involved. Co-starring Warren Oates (Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia) as the commander of a US army unit drawn into the conflict, Sleeping Dogs is simultaneously a political thriller, a personal drama and a true landmark in New Zealand cinema.
