->''"People have asked me if I hold to a unifying theory that informs my writing on cinema. In the past I've told them that I simply judge a movie on its success or failure in representing the perceived point of view of the filmmaker, but now I realize that I was just saying something to get rid of them. What I really believe is that a film should be judged on how well it comes off when compared with the Patrick Swayze film ''Road House''. For ''Road House'' is the single finest American film."''

->''"Everyone walked out of ''Road House'' into the sunlight feeling stunned, stupid, a little [[EvenTheGuysWantHim gay for Patrick Swayze]], and wondering idly why they ever thought Music/DuranDuran was a good band. In one day, [[TheEighties the 80s]] were over. [[EightiesHair Women's hairdos]] started to make sense once again. Spandex was abolished. The [[Music/NewKidsOnTheBlock New Kids]] and Wham! were purged from our cultural memory."''

->''"What makes ''Road House'' such a great movie? The answer is easy: It's quite simply the most implausible film ever made. This is a movie that expects you to believe a man can be famous the world over for being a bouncer. This is a movie that wants you to believe a small-town crime lord can afford a Bigfoot 4x4 monster truck, and that he will actually use it to intimidate local businesses. This is a movie that wants you to believe it's possible to rip a man's throat out with your bare hands. Compared to ''Road House'', ''Franchise/StarWars'' is a documentary."''
