Get ready to knock ’em back and knock ’em out with the movie that kicks more ass than you can handle. The Double Deuce is the meanest, loudest and rowdiest bar south of the Mason-Dixon Line, and Dalton has been hired to clean it up. He might not look like much, but the Ph.D.-educated bouncer proves he’s more than capable — busting the heads of troublemakers and turning the roadhouse into a jumping hot-spot. But Dalton’s romance with the gorgeous Dr. Clay puts him on the bad side of cutthroat local big shot Brad Wesley. It’s got ass-kicking, love-making, tai chi, philosophy, explosions, a stellar cast, and an underdog story for the ages – in short, it’s got it all. There is only one Road House, and we saved you a seat at the bar!
