A 17 year old farm boy is offered an ice hockey tryout. His brother drives him to Canada. He has fast legs, slow fists, but is chosen. Will he learn to use his fists and play ice hockey the Canuck way? Will he get the coach's cute daughter?
Serene and laconic, yet powerful and lethal, Dalton is an expert in martial arts and the best professional bouncer in the business. With such a reputation, Dalton is summoned in a small town in Missouri to clean up the sleazy bar called The Double Deuce from the troublemakers who terrorize the customers, without knowing, however, that the villainous local entrepreneur, Brad Wesley, wants things to remain unchanged. As Dalton cleans up the nightclub, and with it, the town from Wesley's hired goons, a deep wound from a knife will inspire a passionate affair with local Dr. Elizabeth "Doc" Clay. Now, the corrupt Wesley has enough reasons to take Dalton out of the way, nevertheless, the bouncer has the final say.Written by
First of two "Road House" movies. The sequel, Road House 2: Last Call (2006), was made for DVD. The part of Nate Tanner in the follow-up was originally supposed to be James Dalton, Patrick Swayze's character from this movie, but Swayze backed out due to creative differences, and the character was changed. None of the original cast reprised their roles in the sequel. See more »
If Wesley is the most evil and hated man in town, and is a man who does things like vandalizing or destroying people's businesses and homes, and even resorting to murder, why are the people at the car dealership cheering and smiling after he has one of his men destroy the showroom with his monster truck?

DVD release has a cut part of the sex scene between Dalton and Doc. See more »
Watch it for the action or watch it for the story or watch it for the music or watch it for thin women who put out and make men happy. Thin women, brunette, blonde etc. They are all out to please men and themselves and that is what we call escapism. A great film!
