Critic Reviews of "Risky Business"ReelViewsApril 30, 2009
For writer/director Paul Brickman, this was a case of being in the right place at the right time and, perhaps most importantly, getting the right leading man in place.Chicago ReaderAugust 06, 2007
One of the finest film explorations of the end of innocence.VarietyAugust 06, 2007
Writer-director Paul Brickman can therefore be accused of trying to have it both ways, but there's no denying the stylishness and talent of his direction.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
What distinguishes it, however, is that it's hovering permanently on the brink of stark, staring disaster in a way that strangely recalls The Graduate.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004

[The film] improves as it goes along.Seanax.comApril 10, 2016
... you could call it an art movie version of the teen sex comedy.People MagazineJuly 31, 2013
As adolescent adventures go, Risky Business is an invigorating, first-class affair: It manages to make coming of age a witty proposition.Radio TimesJuly 31, 2013
Writer/director Paul Brickman has honed a sharp satire on American go-getting here.Turner Classic Movies OnlineAugust 11, 2010
It's sexy, smart and funny, but also stylish and filled with social satire and commentary on the culture of money.Clothes on FilmJuly 16, 2009
A capitalist wet dream; one that we have long since woken up from screaming.Groucho ReviewsSeptember 28, 2008
It's easy to forget the idiosyncracies of a film that so successfully trades on adolescent male fantasies and nightmares. [Blu-ray]
