A Special Outdoor Screening in The Hudson Beer Garden.
What makes a film so appalling that it transitions from ordinary ineptitude into the sublime; beyond cult status (and all reaso and into that surreal place where you really can’t believe what you’re watching?
You can keep Ghost and Dirty Dancing; this is the late Patrick Swayze’s best movie, even though it’s not, at least by the usual standards, a “good” film.
The Double Deuce is a sleazy music bar in the small town of Jasper, Missouri — “The kind of place where they sweep up the eyeballs after closing”. The owner, tired of his joint being wrecked by muscle-bound “power drinkers” and provocative bimbos, hires the best bouncer in the business (Patrick Swayze) to cool things down. Who in their right mind could possibly believe a story about a world- famous bouncer who’s also a pacifist philosopher? Who cares! Swayze as high-kicking, throat-tearing Dalton is cheer-along fantastic. He’s given awesome support from Sam Elliott and Ben Gazzara.
