Tom Cruise stars as a "hot shot" fighter pilot selected to train at the Navy's elite fighter training school known as "Top Gun." The movie delights with a rambunctious sound track, roaring dog fighting jets, buff and super cocky fight pilots and sexy top government flight instructors. With nicknames like "Goose, " Maverick" and "Snake," these fighter pilots would give a local biker gang a run for their money.
The movie is smart with a sexy story involving Tom Cruise's character in love with the naval flight instructor played by Kelly McGilis, which is over layered with a story about Cruise's character dealing with the ghost of his fighter pilot father and his attempts to be the best fighter pilot without letting his demons betray the very skills that make him a great pilot.
Unfortunately, it seems true: some people will attempt to make a buck off anything. Following director Tony Scott's Sunday suicide leap from a San Pedro, Calif., bridge, several witnesses are reportedly trying to sell footage of his last moments to various news outlets. TMZ and Perez Hilton are reportedly among those who have refused to take the bait.
