80s Movie of the Week Roadhouse

Week 3

His Choice: Roadhouse, 1989

What's it all about: A tough bouncer is hired to tame a dirty bar. And it stars the late great Patrick Swayze - need I say more?

Who's in it: Patrick Swayze, Kelly Lynch, Sam Elliot, Jeff Healy

The Upshot: It was awesome. Totally awesome. One of my favourite 80s flicks ever! I loved it every time I watched it in the 80s and it has only got better with age. It has a bit of everything, action, drama, romance, Patrick Swayze almost naked, philosophy, a happy ending, did I mention Patrick Swayze au natural?
Love it, love it, love it. Might watch it again. If you haven't seen it, you totally should.

His Rating: 9/10 Violet Crumbles

Her Rating: 9/10 West Coast Coolers

ps. I thought you'd be bigger...
