Road House is a classic movie, surely you’ve seen it by now. If you haven’t, here’s the rundown:
Patrick Swayze is Dalton, a professional bouncer with a degree in philosophy. He’s not called a bouncer, though, he’s called a “cooler.” Like other famous bouncers, everyone is clamoring for Dalton. Anyone with a bar, night club, and dance hall wants this guy working their scene. He’s King Bouncer, he’s amazing, and he’s not going to show you his dick.
Dalton’s not alone, though. He’s got backup in the form of Sam Elliot, playing super-legendary veteran cooler Wade Garrett. Mostly, though, Dalton’s got to solve his own problems, and he does this by killing people and falling in love with “Doc,” the best pizza delivery girl in town. Just kidding, she’s a doctor. So, when you’re rich or when you’re awesome, the police can’t touch you, and your best gal will get over watching you kill a man. That’s what Road House taught me.
I think the overall consensus is that this is a great B-Movie. If you haven’t seen it, you can decide for yourself, but I think Road House is worth having in your collection. It’s a movie you can go back to several times. There’s a Rifftrax commentary, to boot, but I haven’t heard it yet.
