Road House

Factual error: When Bigfoot is about to drive through the car dealership it squeals tires with a high pitched squeal. IF it could spin those big meats it would be a deep hound dog like bark. (01:40:40)


Factual error: How did the Mercedes stay on course with no driver? Even if the steering wheel was locked in place the holes, bumps, or uneven grass would have skewed the car's path as long as it was driving by itself. (01:40:40)


Factual error: When they are at the Ford dealership, they're supposed to be in Kansas City where the Double Deuce is. But a sign reads "100 Miles to Bakersfield" on the road next the to the Ford dealership after they smash the cars. (01:25:55)

Suggested correction: The sign does not read "100 miles to Bakersfield" nor does it read, "Bakersfield 100" It says "Los Angeles Bakersfield" with an arrow. Obviously it is directing traffic to the southbound and northbound ramps to I-5, somewhere north of Los Angeles.

Factual error: The car blows up in Mr Weasley's property towards the end of the movie and the guy touches the door to open it to check if Dalton is dead. The door would have been too hot to hold on to the door handle for more than a second without a burn. (01:41:35)

Factual error: The story takes place in Missouri. In a brief scene just before the monster truck wreaks havoc at the car dealership, Patrick Swayze and Kelly Lynch are shown driving toward the camera. In the background, a highway sign shows "Ventura" and the highway number. It's a California sign.


Factual error: Desert and mountain scenery is visible throughout the film despite being set in Missouri; there is no desert anywhere near Missouri, and its only mountains are the Ozarks, which are smaller and more rounded in appearance than those seen in this film.


Road House mistake picture

Continuity mistake: This mistake occurs when Dalton shakes Emmett's hand while outside the horse barn. When they first meet he is working, wearing gloves. After they make intros and shake hands, he is not wearing gloves. In the immediate scene after, he is shown picking up hay and the gloves are back on. (01:43:20)

Trivia: During the fight scene between Jimmy and Dalton, Jimmy slams a log against Dalton's chest. The log you see here is a real one. Marshall Teague thought the log was a breakable prop and kept slamming it into Patrick Swayze's chest with each take. By the end, Swayze's chest was covered in bruises.
