I'm split - it's a draw between Red Dawn and Roadhouse. I just remember seeing Red Dawn as a kid thinking "Holy hell - this can happen here!?" Ah, the good ole' days. I credit the Swayz-meister for making me believe that could actually happen in America. And THANK GOD Swayze was there to defend our sorry asses.

/\ Seconded, although Road House, Ghost and Point Break are also up there for me. R.I.P. Patrick.

Re: Favorite Patrick Swayze Movie?

Granted I haven't seen a majority of these, but I have a certain fondness for Point Break. It's one of those films that seemed to be on cable all the time. And every time I'd catch it, I found myself drawn into it. So I've definitely seen it more often than any other Patrick Swayze film.

I forgot he was in The Outsiders. Love that movie. My vote goes to either Road House or Dirty Dancing, probably the former though.

Sorry but I find this response completely fitting.

I was not much a fan of his work.

I voted for To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar, then realized I should have gone with Other, namely Donnie Darko. RIP, Patrick.

Re: Favorite Patrick Swayze Movie?

I love every one of his 80's & early 90's movies, so very tough to choose a single favorite. I'll have to say Red Dawn, followed ever so closely by Point Break, Youngblood and The Outsiders

Red Dawn
It would've been Outsiders, but then "The Complete Novel" came along...

Never a big fan of his movies. But, I am sorry he's gone. Ghost would have be my favorite Swayze film.

Not sure if I should vote. I've only seen 4 movies on that list.

No Donnie Darko? He wasn't the leading man, but his performance was great.
