One of Patrick Swayze‘s most popular films, Road House, came out 32 years ago. In the movie, Patrick stars as Dalton, a bouncer at a small-town bar in Missouri. He starred alongside another great actor, Sam Elliott. It is now one of those ’80s cult classic movies that still has a great fan base.

In the film, Patrick’s character Dalton is hired to help clean up the sleazy bar due to his martial arts skills. He ends up sharing some great advice to the patrons as well. You may remember his three simple rules that are just as relevant today, 32 years later!
