All the Right Moves (1983)

Michael Chapman directs Tom Cruise, Craig T. Nelson and Lea Thompson in this teen football drama where a cocky kid ruins his shot at a scholarship.

Known now only as a springboard on HIS leap to mega stardom and the film where you glimpse a flash of HIS “Top Gun”! A solid little high school drama… the romance between him and a superior Lea Thompson (he acts / she stars) is the best thing. I don’t entirely agree with the Hollywood politics that a working class existence is a prison to be escaped at all costs but in the main this is a Bruce Springsteen song come to cinematic life. And that’s always going to be a watchable vehicle.
