If someone were to make a 2015 version of “Risky Business,” it would be a lot like “Dope.” I don’t know if one inspired the other (I don’t research movies, I watch movies) but the similarities are eerie. I liked both immensely, but let’s focus on “Dope.” Straight-A high school kid takes a walk on the wild side, Straight Outta Compton-style hijinks ensue and the kid learns a little something about himself. I especially loved it when one of the kid’s sidekicks is wearing a vintage University of Miami jersey, No. 43 – Larry Brodsky, who went to my high school.
