Road House Part 2. Insert your own joke here....

In keeping with the tradition of 'never take a chance on anything original' philosophy Hollywood is churning out another sequel. This time the mullet classic "Road House" will have a successor.

For those who are not familiar with the original "Road House" let me begin by saying it's the greatest white trash movie ever. The great thespian Patrick Swayze plays a bouncer at a dive bar where he punches burly townsfolk and then waxes philosophic. There's a rich guy who tries to swindle the town's business owners out of cash and Patrick becomes all Robin Hood like. Yes it is as bad as it sounds.

Maybe the success of "Dirty Dancing Havana Nights" gave some producers the idea that this would make money. I'm kind of secretly hoping so, cause maybe we'll see the coming of "Red Dawn 2: The Chinese Boogaloo" or "Ghost: Demi in Hell".

"Calling me sir is like putting an elevator in an outhouse. It don't belong" - Emmett from "Roadhouse".

Road House 2 begins

I have to admit that "Road House" is a guilty pleasure, and probably my favorite Swayze movie (starring him - doesn't count Donnie Darko or Uncommon Valor).

The director of this sequel has done such projects you've never heard of as "Demon Hunter" (with Billy Drago as Asmodeus!) and the straight-to-video "Cruel Intentions 3" (I didn't know there was a 2).

The Schaech guy who plays "Dalton" in this movie was also in a straight-to-video "8mm 2" due out this year. The prince of unneeded late sequels, it seems.
