Peter Griffin is my idol. Roadhouse!
lol when i see this now i think of the episode on (Family Guy) where Peter kicks people then looks at screen and says "Road House" if you've seen it you'll know what i'm talking about.....lmbo......R.I.P Patrick Swayze
The feel good film in our house. We watch it so often, my 9yr old and I 'talk' the script through mountain of popcorn and chocolate bricks. Nothing on telly? Roadhouse! It's one of those rare cheese blocks that will never ever turn boring.
-This place has a sign hangin' over the urinal that says, 'Don't eat the big white min'- 10/10

:fresh: :fresh: :fresh: :fresh: :fresh: Read the directors name, "ROWDY" I knew I was in for a treat. You can't have a name like that and not direct a film like this. I think it's a law, that you must direct at least one bar fight movie with explosions, we get 2 explosions here, when you have a name like that.

The Zen gets tossed around almost as much as bodies do. I kept waiting for Patrick Swayze, to shave his head, just drop everything and just walk the earth like Kane on "Kung Fu"

R
1 HOUR 54 MINUTES
One of the cheesiest yet enjoyable films I have ever seen. Violence and nudity all round!



Road House has to be one of Patric Swayze's best performances ever. In it, Patrick Swayze is James Dalton-a bouncer who's reputation precedes him wherever he goes. It's a pretty entertaining movie...although nowhere near fabulous or worth a second viewing. Summed up, Road House is a mindless action movie with shoddy lines and a predictable plot...but it definitely passes the time.

I'm beginning the rather lengthy task of entering into the database every film I have seen, at least those I have a decent memory of. Some may have the briefest of reviews while many will just have a number. Those films that I consider personal favorites and/or those that have some historical signficance I will add later when I have time for more lengthy reviews.

Twins, directed by Ivan Reitman, stars Arnold Schwarznegger and Danny DeVito as twins sperated at birth who later reunite. This is Arnold's first attempt at comedy, and he isn't half-bad, but the major problem with this film is that it relies on one central joke. Not horrible, just mediocre comedy here. The film also features Kelly Preston and Chloe Webb.

Lust in the Dust, directed by Paul Bartel, is a spood of old westerns which stars Tab Hunter and Divine. Although this film has a few funny moments, you can tell this isn't a John Waters film. If it was it would have been much better.

Criminal Law, directed by Martin Campbell, is a pretty bad legal/crime thriller despite the presence of Kevin Bacon and Gary Oldham.

Road House was a failed attempt at cashing in on Patrick Swayze's popularity.

Perfect is the perfect example on why John Travolta's star had faded by the mid 80's.


Typical TNT late night Movie... Lots of good action and cliches. What keeps it from being rotten is the performance of The Jeff Healy Band that provides some kick@ss tunes.
