Patrick Swayze (right) in a scene from 1989’s Roadhouse, one of the most uproariously entertaining bad movies ever released, a preposterously macho slugfest that imparted more wisdom than the Ten Commandments and Bhagavad Gita combined, and inadvertently gave us one of the best drinking games* ever invented.
*Many claim to have invented Road House drinking games. Ours is deceptively simple. Take a drink whenever one character imparts a piece of declarative wisdom to another. Examples include: "Pain don't hurt," "It'll get worse before it gets better," and of course, "It's my way or the highway." What's good about this game is the discussion over what, in fact, qualifies as declarative wisdom. Good luck.
