The right move? Keeping his pants on!
If you said "Unnecessary nudity" for his love scene with Lea Thompson, then you're absolutely correct.
It's true: Cruise didn't have to bare it all for that memorable scene, but he told the director it was more fair that way. (Just the same way I insist all the lovemaking scenes between me and Ione Skye are completely natural.) So for the first, and hopefully only time, the world got to see Tom Cruise's naughty bits.
That's just one of the morsels of trivia you'll get on this week's Stuck in the '80s podcast: Our salute to football movies of the '80s. (Also hidden deep inside Reader Mailbag: your suggestions for our list of John Hughes porn movie titles.)
Hopefully this week's show will make up for last week's debacle. We're still getting hate mail for our "Weird Science" podcast. My mom even wrote one.
"Dear Steve. You're not funny anymore. And the latest show SUCKS - even though I taught you never to use that word. Love, Mom. P.S. - Bring Funyuns to the family dinner tonight."
