Road House

Outside the genre of sci-fi, I can’t think of any film less plausible than Road House. Every element of the story is preposterous: the idea of Swayze being a nationally famous bouncer (with a degree in philosophy), the concept of such a super-violent bar having such an attractive clientele, the likelihood of a tiny Kanas town having such a sophisticated hospital, the authenticity of ripping another man’s throat out, etc. etc. etc. Every single scene includes at least one detail that could never happen in real life. So does that make Road House bad? No. It makes Road House perfect.
