Other mistake: Where he comes to Jasper to work at the Double Deuce, he drives to the junkyard to buy new tyres and puts them in the trunk, stacked vertically. There is just one problem - there is no space for them. But who cares, he closes the trunk anyway.

Suggested correction: He slides the first tire all the way into the trunk, then places the second tire in the deeper cavity of the trunk, thus leaving enough room for both tires to fit and the door to close.

No way, that last tire's sticking up way too high. I highly doubt that trunk closed. That's always been an obvious mistake about Road House.

Way I see it he didn't have a spare to begin with in that case one in the well and one on top, it works cause there's less than half a tire showing.

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.

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.

Suggested correction: The car that is under the cover is Dalton's actual 'non-junker' car. It is Dalton's hand that turns the key, henceforth, Caucasian.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where they are discussing why Dalton fired Mr Wesley's nephew (upstairs in the Double Deuce). Mr Wesley's nephew threatens Dalton with a knife and when Dalton takes a swing at him, there is blood on Mr Wesley's nephew's face way before contact. (00:34:05 - 00:38:00)

More quotes from Road House

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.

Question: When Dalton and Doc are leaving the bar, you can see the Bigfoot monster truck with Jimmy in it. As there are only 2 other cars in the car park, why wouldn't Dalton have confronted them?

Answer: As we see throughout the film, Dalton is not confrontational, and always takes the path of least violence. He wouldn't confront them, he would wait for them to attack him.
