Beccause kids love references to movies that came out before they were born...



This scene in Risky Business has been copied, parodied, copied, and paid homage to a million times since the film came out in 1983. The sliding across the floor in your socks in an Oxford and tighty whities is the shorthand for freedom.

But it's been 25 years. Let's find other references to steal. Does the writer, set designer and/or wardrobe guy of "Risky Business" get any money when a major commercial "pays homage" to something they came up with?
