How well do you remember the '80s hit, Road House? Take the quiz to find out!
by Jodi C

Did you see the movie "Road House?" How much of it do you remember? Take this quiz to find out.

Patrick Swayze is no longer with us, but his films will live on forever. In addition to films such as "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost," Swayze starred in the 1989 film "Road House." Swayze as a highly educated bar bouncer? Well, it worked for some, but not for everyone. Unfortunately, for most, it just wasn't considered a good movie. With a $15 million budget, the film grossed only $30 million at the box office, rendering it a flop both monetarily and critically. 

Critics panned the movie as generally bad, but somewhat entertaining for the right viewer. The themes of violence and romance were trite and poorly developed according to most reviewers. The movie continues to rate poorly in the minds of viewers. In addition to Swayze, the film starred Ben Gazzara, Kelly Lynch, and Sam Elliott, and even starred Bigfoot #7, a truck. Hey, it's a movie about a bouncer at a bar called the Double Deuce in Jasper, Missouri... gotta credit the truck.

Take this quiz to see if you can hold your own with the big boys. Let's get started.
