Every Tom Cruise Movie Ranked From Worst To Best

41. Losin' It (1983)

Tom Cruise Interview With The Vampire
Universal Pictures

Cruise's first starring role came in this early 80s teen comedy, which finds the actor (alongside a young Jackie Earle Haley) trying to lose his virginity whilst firework shopping.

Simply put, Losin' It is a remarkably dull affair, and its themes of sex and identity are handled with careless blunt force and crass oversight. Cruise, meanwhile, is on auto-pilot, not yet ready for what his career would soon become and showing none of the spark that would make him a star.
