Road House remake? Pain don't hurt but this idea does

26

November

Patrick Swayze! If only you alive you could put a stop to this madness: Hollywood is planning a remake of Road House. I don't know if I can handle the nonstop sobbing again after Sam Elliott's character Wade Garrett dies. (Whoops. Spoiler alert.)

RELATED NEWS/ARCHIVE

TheWrap.com reports that MGM has chosen Rob Cohen (The Fast and Furious) to direct the tale of a tough but warm-hearted bar bouncer who is hired to bring peace to a ratting bar somewhere in the Midwest. Swayze starred as "Dalton" in the original 1989 flick, which has gained a cult following for its hopefully intentional campiness.

Famed movie critic Roger Ebert himself wasn't sure of the film's intent in his review of Road House, writing: "Was it intended as a parody? I have no idea, but I laughed more during this movie than during any of the so-called comedies I saw during the same week."

TOP 5 PIECES OF WISDOM FROM DALTON IN ROAD HOUSE:

5. "If you're gonna have a pet, keep it on a leash."

4. "Take the biggest guy in the world, shatter his knee and he'll drop like a stone."

3. "People who really want to have a good time won't come to a slaughterhouse."

2. "Nobody ever wins a fight."

1. "Pain don't hurt."
