Road House.  The bad movie you can't not watch whenever it's on.  Oh and, Sam Eliot is cooler than Chuck Norris could ever be.

Who's reprising Kelly Lynch's role and does Bill Murray know her husband?

Snapper Carr: Who's reprising Kelly Lynch's role and does Bill Murray know her husband?


You made me LOL.

And I can't support this remake:  Road House is the Citizen Kane of bad movies...it cannot, and should not, be touched.  It should be appreciated in it's horrific splendor.  (And if you haven't caught the Kevin Smith commentary on the DVD, you are missing greatness.)

Instead of being all doom and gloom about it, isn't it possible they could remake it just as wonderfully cheesy and over the top as the original?

I mean it's much more likely they'll try to make it a serious drama, or PC it to death, or otherwise completey lose the feel of the original. But shiat it's not like they're rewriting Citizen Kane, it's possible the remake could be just as 'so bad it's good' as Swayze's version.

Slaves2Darkness: Not if they make him a bouncer in a strip club and instead of a doctor they make the female lead one of the dancers. I'm thinking at least four to six scenes with tits in them and at least three sex scenes intesped with the fighting.


I like your train of thought, however there's no way modern Hollywood is showing gratuitous bewbs.  You can have as much throat-tearing violence as you want but not a single bewb.

It would break the coveted PG-13 rating.

Yes, it's going to be PG-13.  Everything is PG-13.

But... if they were going to go hard-R rating... yes, the stripper should be going to med school during the days and dancing at nights to pay the bills.  Just so, you know, she's actually a person and all.

Is Hollywood so out of touch that it doesn't understand why Roadhouse is a "classic"?  It's one of the most entertaining "bad" movies of all time.  It is a really bad movie, but it's still fun because it's part over-the-top action sequences and part cliche trainwreck.  And dat ending!!

There's two ways they can remake it, and either way it doesn't make sense to "remake" this film.  They can make it intentionally cliche and cheesy but then it won't be honest which is part of the charm of the original. Or try to make a genuinely cool action flick in which case they will miss the point as well.

No-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o!

Do what you will with Citizen Kane, Casablanca, The Seventh Seal and The Godfather ...

but leave my Dalton alone. Bart Simpson once said that he based his life on Krusty's "teachings." Well, Dalton is my Krusty.

How can you improve upon the perfection that is this film?  It is the White Trash Hamlet; the Redneck Romeo and Juliet; Macbeth with a Mullet; Timon of Athens, Georgia.

Digitalstrange: No, it was pure 80's cheese that just can't be redone today.


This.  Roadhouse is what happens when you take the 80s, grind them up, and freebase them.

No, it was pure 80's cheese that just can't be redone today. This remake will try to be "dark and gritty" and just be bad, not so bad it's good.

Bith Set Me Up: Does anyone find it eerie that Patrick Swayze revealed he had pancreatic cancer, which would kill him, shortly after Jeff Healy died? And much later, Ben Gazzara also dies from pancreatic cancer? Is there a Road House curse?


Kinda saw Jeff Healy dying pretty soon after. The guy was sick for a very very long time. He is missed dearly btw.

Whistling Kitty Chaser: Rapmaster2000: "I used to fark guys like you in prison" is the greatest bad guy one-liner of all time.

When I heard that, I had an immediate Happy Gilmore response. "You used to fark guys in prison?"


Uh, who else was he going to fark?

SONOFABIATCH!

Yeah, or The Great Gatsby.


If they ever remake The Goonies or The Princess Bride, then I'll start to get pissed off.

It's Rob Cohen directing (the guy who directed the first Fast and Furious movie) so my money is on Paul Walker.

Him or Channing Tatum, because idiots.

One of my favorite Roadhouse scenes is when Kelly Lynch screams at Swayze, "You think you're gonna save these people from Brad Wesley? WELL WHO'S GONNA SAVE THEM FROM YOU?!?" Then immediately the cabin you can see through the window behind her explodes. Awesome.

If Patrick Swayze were alive today he would tell the producers that they had to make it "My way or the highway."
