Most movies, celebrities, or pop culture phenomenons can later be traced to a Peter Griffin quote on Family Guy, and the 1980’s cult favorite Road House is no different. In fact, the animated series referencing the Patrick Swayze film may have even helped to raise its profile to a new generation, but who’s really to say how much power Peter Griffin holds? At any rate, if you’re looking for a nostalgic classic on Netflix this summer, look no further than Road House.

Patrick Swayze stars in Road House as PhD-educated bouncer Dalton, who works at a club in New York City. However, he’s brought to the Double Deuce in Jasper, Missouri, and it’s the loudest and rowdiest club you’ll ever see. Dalton’s hired to clean the place up and rid it of the troublemakers that keep the roadhouse from being a local hot spot. He quickly proves himself to be capable of the job, but his romance with Dr. Clay (Kelly Lynch) lands him in hot water with big shot Brad Wesley (Ben Gazzara).

Upon release, Road House received negative reviews from critics and failed to become a box office hit with a $30 million gross against a $15 million budget. However, the film grew its presence in video rentals and cable television airings, eventually amassing a strong cult following. The film received a straight-to-DVD sequel in 2006, an off-Broadway musical adaptation in 2003, and a canceled remake in 2015 that would have starred Ronda Rousey. Clearly, Road House left its mark on pop culture, and it’s coming to Netflix starting on the first of July.
