Road House
Video

Continuity mistake: When Dalton rips the guy's throat out, he wipes his hand on his pants and no blood is on his hand or pants, the next cut shows him looking at his hand full of blood.

Audio problem: When Dalton gets into the bar and the band is playing "road house blues" there is a moment while the singer is away from the mic but his voice is still on.

Continuity mistake: Swayze and his new landlord are standing near the horse corral talking. His landlord says "Calling me sir, is like putting an elevator, in an outhouse, don't belong. I'm Emmitt". Swayze says "I'm Dalton". Notice Swayze has his eyes open normally and fully when they shake hands. In the second shot of the same handshake, the sun suddenly glares, and Swayze is suddenly squinting in the bright light. Weather don't move that fast, folks. (00:20:45)

Revealing mistake: In the first fight in the entire movie, the first guy Dalton punches is bleeding from the nose before Dalton actually makes contact.

Revealing mistake: When the monster truck takes out the auto dealership, you can see a road sign that says 'Los Angeles Bakersfield'. The movie takes place in Joplin, Missouri.

Continuity mistake: After the fight ends between Dalton and Jimmy, Jimmy is killed and kicked into the water. When Doc pulls Jimmy's body out and onto the sand, his eyes are wide open. Immediately after from a further camera angle, his eyes are closed before Doc attempts to close them.

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.

Continuity mistake: Dalton exits his car and tosses the keys to the African American wino, saying 'keep it, it's yours', then walks away. The wino uncovers the car and gets in, but the hand that puts the key in the ignition is caucasian.

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.
