Timeless critical eviscerations: Cocktail (1988, dir. Roger Donaldson)

Cocktail is a picture that sets itself up as a gritty, authentic character study but is laughable, false and stupid in all its details. The only connection to reality here is that there are actually such things as bartenders.

— Mick LaSalle – San Francisco Chronicle, 28 July 1988. BURN!
