A perfect "guy flick"!

"Pain don't hurt."

Road House is the very definition of a guilty pleasure - it's packed with rousing action, a ludicrous story, a great soundtrack, gratuitous nudity, huge bare breasts, monster trucks, sex in strange places, roundhouse kicks and a great lead performance from Patrick Swayze in his prime. There isn't much weight to Road House, nor does it have any lofty ambitions, but... read more

I already saw this movie but since it was ages ago, I thought I should check it out again. Well, to be honest, I didn’t remember much and I have to admit that it was actually not so bad after all. I mean, I still think that most of the plot was rather idiotic. Indeed, basically, it was some kind of modern Western involving some bouncers which wasn’t really a great mix. However, above all thank... read more

"Being a person whose job for a few years involved dealing with people in a way that made them do things they didn't always want to do (admittedly in a much less intense and less violent environment than this film!) I found myself intrigued by the opening hour of Road House as Swayze goes about converting a crappy bar to a fancy bar by teaching bouncers how to treat customers. It's a thread dropped a bit too soon to engage with a traditional evil carpetbagger -story where said carpetbagger holds "

"First viewing - Aug. 30th Patrick Swayze double feature Actually this was technically my second viewing of Road House, but given that I remembered almost none of what happens I'm counting this as a first view. I know back in the early '90s I spent the night at a friend's house & he put this on for us to watch, but either I paid fleeting attention to it or it failed entirely to stick with me. Now it's possible that the latter is the case because I wouldn't call this a great film by any means. "

“I already saw this movie but since it was ages ago, I thought I should check it out again. Well, to be honest, I didn’t remember much and I have to admit that it was actually not so bad after all. I mean, I still think that most of the plot was rather idiotic. Indeed, basically, it was some kind of modern Western involving some bouncers which wasn’t really a great mix. However, above all thanks to Patrick Swayze’s charisma, the damned thing was still watchable. There was also another thing that bothered me though. Indeed, one of the main idea was that the main character was some kind of Zen bouncer and that, according to him, violence should be used as a last resort and, in a fight, nobody actually wins and other things like that. And yet, almost all conflicts were resolved with some” read more

" I've been told that this is the quintessential "guy flick" and I can now see why. I also understand why all the women of a certain age were so in love with Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing and Ghost, aside). If you're a man's man, yeah, you should probably see this."

The Bad Movie's ... A Guilty Pleasure (15 movies items)

" it's my favorite bad movie because there's everything in it, some great music from the Jeff Healy Band, some good fight scenes , a real badass villain (Brad Wesley), some hot sexy dancing scenes and on top a great view on Kelly Lynch's sexy buns (lol)... there's everything to make a guy happy in this one (lol) "
