Road House DVD

| DVD

Road House is one of those movies that helped usher out the era of action films that had feasible plot lines (and also helped reverse the direction of Patrick Swayze's career arc). Swayze stars as Dalton: a handsome, existential bouncer who owns both a degree in philosophy and a Mercedes and that's perhaps the most believable aspect of the whole movie. Dalton runs afoul of Wesley (Ben Gazzara), the meanest SOB round these parts, by taking up with his former girlfriend, Doc (Kelly Lynch)--the only woman in town with an IQ approaching double digits, even if she had unfathomably hooked up with such a lowlife. Swayze had complained about being typecast as beefcake when this was made, but that didn't stop him from revealing as much skin as possible. It's so insulting to its audience that it's nice to be able to turn the tables and laugh at the filmmakers.--David Kronke, Amazon.com

Philosophy student Dalton (Patrick Swayze) is hired as a bouncer to clean up the rowdy road house 'Double Deuce'. Being a man of ideas, he at first tries to solve problems without resorting to violence, his formidable reputation doing much of the work for him. However, he has not reckoned on the perverse will of the local crimelord (Ben Gazzara), a man with ideas of his own, and despite Dalton's best intentions, much fist-fighting ensues.
