Road House

I generally like the movie Road House with Patrick Swayze.  But there are two parts that send me absolutely through the frickin' roof and they are both close to the end...

1)  When the bad martial arts guy torches Dalton's landlord's house.  He's driving away on his motor scooter and does the obligatory pause and evil laugh before continuing on his way. (Evil laugh at :34 on the video below)

2)  When Dalton defeats the afore-mentioned evil/pause/laugh martial arts guy and his doctor girlfriend (who has gone through almost the entire movie dressed in pink gingham in order to make her seem more 'country'--Himself is of the opinion that it's meant to make her cute--we agree to disagree on this point) runs right past her sweetie (who is leaking blood all over the place from getting his butt thrashed by the now-dead evil laugh guy) and checks out the bad guy first and then just looks disgustedly at her bloody, staggering darling as she self-righteously stalks back to her gingham filled apartment.  (dumbass girlfriend at 3:14)

My only thought for Item 2 is 'bitch, pack your gingham dresses and don't let the door hit you on the ass.'  ARGH!

If you like Roadhouse, you'll love it with the Rifftrax. Rifftrax is like MST3K for modern movies. Go to rifftrax.com and sample a few - Roadhouse was Mike's first.

I'll have to try it since I'm an MST3K fan from way back. Thanks!

Og--totally agree.

BTW, the ogwife is such a swayze fan she'd probably throw me out of the bedroom for Zombie Swayze. Plus, she's a huge Sam Elliot fan, so Roadhouse is the perfect storm, for her.
