For some inexplicable reason, I am watching “Roadhouse” starring Patrick Swayze on TBS for the seventh time. This is such a bad movie, but why do I watch it over and over again?
-The fight scenes are really, really well done
-Ben Gazarra is a great villian, and that Jimmy Lee dude is actually very scary on screen
-My favorite pro wrestler of all time, Terry Funk is in it
-Hot chicks with great 80s hair
-The Jeff Healey Band
-Sam Elliot is in it
So despite the fact that yiou are asked to believe that there is a mountainous desert in Missouri; get past Patrick Swayze removing a knife from the same guy twice; that Wesley’s nephew’s nose is already bleeding before Swayze hits the first time (office fight scene); that you are asked to buy into Patrick Swayze, at 4’9" and 110 pounds , being a bouncer; and that someone with a PhD in Philospohy would end up as a bouncer… . .
I can’t stop watching this train wreck! I guess what Roadhouse is is a 2 hour excuse to turn off your brain!
