    Watching Road House on Netflix and forgot about this scene:


    Another classic


    Can you think of some other scenes in action movies that have some terrible over-acting or crying. Nic Cage movies excluded...thats all he does.

    Road House may be the best B movie ever made with lines like "Pain don't hurt" and "I use to fuck guys like you in prison". Don't even think about criticizing that masterpiece of a movie.

    I love every minute of it, but the sadness seemed a bit forced.

    Its a bad movie, you have to learn to love it for its flaws. Honestly, I hated it when I was a kid, but over the years I've come to like it after watching it on cable dozens of times. You just learn to like it for its poor acting and corniness. Thats the hallmark of a B movie.

    I've never seen it, but those two quotes are funny enough to pique my interest. Too bad I cancelled my Netflix account.

    Road House is a great classic and should be treated as such. RIP Patrick Swayze.

    Who doesn't enjoy watching an oiled up Patrick Swayze perform Tai Chi?
