Patrick Swayze In RoadHouse. Seriously - Are You Kidding Me?

Yesterday at the BBQ that I went to I was able catch a half hour of the movie Roadhouse starring Patrick Swayze.

Why didn't anybody tell me that Roadhouse was so great? And by great I mean so cheesy that I couldn't stop laughing. I wish they took photos of the pride in the faces of the people that were responsible for making that movie. If I had those photos I bet I could watch the movie, then glance at the photos and just laugh my ass off.

And do you see that part in the clip below where Patrick Swayze is shirtless and doing karate moves because he studied Eastern philosphy in college? I would give anything to have that Swayze character live next to me and do that crap in his yard because my new hobby would be to harass Swayze. I'd probably call it "operation harass Swayze" or something really creative like that. I'd probably hide in the brush making monkey sounds, shoot rocks at him using my wrist rocket - things like that. After I gained his trust of course. That's how I do it.

And his intensity reminds me of how much I can't stand people that are this intense and serious. Fine to be serious all the time but if you've got no quirkiness to you then I have no use for you. (looking away and shooshing with hand) Be on your way.

This isn't your all-time favorite movie? (It's one of mine.)

And if you piss him off too much, he may do that think where he rips your throat out with the kung-fu-klaw.

But watch the unedited version if you can. The nudity is truly gratuitous. And the line "I'm on my break. / Stay on it." Will never be the same again.

Scope - I'll be renting this soon and studying it frame by frame. I'll will take your notes into consideration.

Scope said...

I would STRONGLY urge you to double feature it with his movie, "Next Of Kin". IMDB that bad boy and be stunned at the cast.

diane said...

Isn't there some kind of code about not talking bad about someone when they're dying? No? I thought there was.
Anyway, did you ever see his brother on the Carson show? (Johnny, not Daily) He's weird looking, great example of what a difference just a few genes can make.

Jeannie said...

Always hated Swayze. Don't remember this movie but I remember hating it.
Like Sam Elliot though.

sista #2 said...

I only saw him in Ghost & Dirty Dancing...they were enough for me.

Nobody puts baby in a corner.

Dr Zibbs said...

Jeanie - Sam Elliot is always cool

Sista #2 - you just had me cracking up with that line except I'm surprised you're not into him given all the beefcake pics you put on your blog.

Kurt said...

He burns with the fire of 1000 Journey Ballads.

Dr Zibbs said...

Kurt - excellent line.

OMG! I totally was going to blog about Roadhouse back in the fall before I freaked out, almost deleted my blog and then shunned the interweb for three months. Can you believe the cheese of that movie. I love that the "Dr." wears a table cloth looking shirt-dress thing. I love that she shouts to Swayze's character, "Who's gonna save them from YOU!" *cue less than stellar explosion from behind her*. Oh, man. I need to take a day off work to watch Dirty Dancing, Roadhouse and Ghost.

Dr Zibbs said...

Hi I'm new to this blog. I agree. Look at the pride in Swayze's comments when he..

Oh damn it - it's me, Dr Zibbs. You really need to watch this clip a few time so you really get it.

OK. Get to work.

Has Kelly Lynch ever done anything that wasn't shitful?

Andrew Rodriguez said...

There was (is?) a chain of steak restaurants called Roadhouse Grill or something like that. Every time I went into one of those places, I so wanted there to be a lot of kickboxing going on. I mean, if we can get a show with my Benihana's Japanese food, why can't someone be kicked through a wall while I'm enjoying my steak? Or is that just me...

Bizarro said...

I watched "Showgirls" on cable recently - perhaps the "best"/worst big budget movie ever.

Lower budget but even better though: "No Retreat, No Surrender." Jean-Claude Van Damme's first and a definite "run don't walk" to see.

Oh yeah, death to Zibbs, etc . . .

Gwen said...

I'm with Scope - you need to see the whole thing. It's classic cheese.

Florida Girl In Sydney said...

Sista#2 totally took my line! I was all -- nobody puts baby in a corner, but after watching that trailer you may find me curled up in a corner recovering from the hair in that movie.

B.E. Earl said...

"Road House" is clearly one of the greatest films ever made. I try to watch it every time it is on even when it airs on basic cable. But not for Dalton. No.

Wade Fucking Garrett is the best cooler in the business. Period. Sam Elliot rocks so much in this film. I can't even tell you how much.

Try watching this one with "The Best of the Best". Another one of the greatest cheesiest films of all time.

Cameron said...

You twitted about aforementioned BBQ, and spoke of the entertainment, but what of the food? Did their pulled pork make the grade, did the ribs suck ass, was the steak over-cooked. A fellow BBQ-er-er must know.

Greta said...

Oh Jeff Healey. R.I.P.

Kate said...

"He's the best friend a good time ever had."
Oh ho ho, classic!

Mella said...

Jeff Healey rocked this movie for me. And in the scene at the diner, when they're showing their scars... you can see Sam Elliot's bush.

That's totally one of my interests on my Facebook profile: Sam Elliot's bush.

diane said...

Sam Elliott in Cemetery Man (Yes, I know Rhupert Everett was the main character, duh). Classic, can't believe I forgot about that one until just now.

Shawn said...

I can't believe you've never seen this movie before. It's primarily known as the film all bounces masturbate to.

I thought everyone knew that.

Shawn said...

err...bouncers

I guess bounces probably do too.

Dominica said...

Oooh, I was always in search of a man that would do karate moves in my front garden, taking me on a hot date and push me in a pool of mud (instead of a hammam hot tub) - sh*gged me and best of all ; he doesn't want me to do ironing cause he never wears a shirt...
I am not even going to discuss his hairdo ...
I never understood the fuss about Dirty Dancing either...

Ronda Laveen said...

BluY: Thanks for stopping by and checking out my "Cookie Sutra" post. Your blog is quite fun.

Roady Housy: Zen Bar Bouncing with Smart Girl + Bad Boy Under Overtones.

He is such an ill man it makes me sad.

I'll be back.

Dr Zibbs said...

Andrew R - Hahahahahaahha


Cameron - the guests made burgers - I brought wings.

Mella - WTF? But laughing at that comment. I didn't think that was an attraction.

Chele said...

i love this movie, he wears the tightest jeans ever that are so high...only he can make that incredible sexy

WendyB said...

Serious people -- I kill them and eat them.

sas said...

Mr Swayze is the man-stick by which all other men are measured.

(except Tom Selleck of course).

Michelle said...

I like the little kiss at .55 seconds. I never liked Swayze either but now he has cancer and I feel bad a little. Like I don't want to say anything bad about him!!! UGH!!!

miss amy said...

Funny... I some of this a couple of weeks ago on cable.
I practically had tea spraying out of my nostrils.
Cheese at its finest.

Cora said...

Never seen it. How many scenes does he take his shirt off in? Like, what, 50%? 65%? More?

What? Just curious.

Dr Zibbs said...

Cora - 50 - 65% too much for me.

Fancy Schmancy said...

That is one fine movie. My favorite part is when the stuffed bear falls on the fat guy during the end. Has Swayze made a movie that wasn't intense and cheesy? The best was probably To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar.

Mella said...

Doc: It's not an attractant in most men, but this is SAM ELLIOT. I'd hit that. Yep. I'm perving on an old guy. :P

Watching the movie Roadhouse. It is cheesy, but what really pissed me off is how the female lead compares Patrick Swayze';s character to Ben Gazzara's character and labels them alike. Ben Gazzara is a totally evil and crooked jerk and Patrick Swayze protects and defends the innocent. Damned liberal Hollywood movie makers like to consider defenders of right -- law abiding citizens the same as criminals. "Can't we all just get along???"

Irritating movie!
