Patrick Swayze tribute

My No. 1 guilty pleasure movie is, without doubt, a Patrick Swayze classic.

"Dirty Dancing?" "Point Break?"

No and no.

It's none other than "Road House."

News of Swayze's death was sad, but his role as "Dalton" (we don't know if that's his first or last name) will always be remembered. Remembered that is as one of the cheesiest, testosterone-laced movies of the 1980s.

How cheesy? Before starring in "Road House," Swayze made a name for himself in the film "Dirty Dancing." Playing off that popular role, "Road House's" tagline was, "The dancing's over. Now it gets dirty."

You gotta love it. The movie centers around Swayze's character, the ultimate bouncer who's recruited to clean up a seedy bar, The Double Deuce. The performances by all are over-the-top cheesy, but that's why it's a cheeseball classic.

If you haven't seen it, check it out. The cable TV classic is so bad, it's good, if you know what I mean.
