If one of the two Oscars that I predict will go to the movie A Star Is Born, I hope one of those goes to Sam Elliott. I’ve enjoyed watching him in movies over the years – Tombstone, The Big Lebowski and Mask, to name some. I even liked him in that awful, awful movie Road House. Ever play the Road House drinking game? Take a drink whenever someone in the movie throws a punch! Careful, you’ll be three sheets to the wind by the time Patrick Swayze and Kelly Lynch have their sex scene in the loft – and sex scenes are the other reasons to take a drink while watching this one! It’s definitely NOT a movie to watch while sober.
Take a sip of your drink if you see something like this in the Road House drinking game!
Sam Elliott plays an older bouncer in Road House (you also have to take a drink when he shows off his abdominal scar…and the things underneath). Sam Elliott’s main claim to fame, in addition to his legendary mustache – is his absolutely amazing baritone voice…and presence. He reminds me – just a little bit – of my father in law. It’s almost as though Sam Elliott was born in the wrong time – and should be living in the “Wild West!”
