If I read one more Patrick Swayze obit that begins with “star of “Ghost” and “Dirty Dancing”" I think I am going to scream. Obviously if all was right with the world the obits would identify him as the ”star of “Roadhouse” and “Red Dawn.”" “Ghost” and “Dirty Dancing” are black marks on his otherwise fine career that should be flushed down the memory hole forever. Good grief, the man is dead. Allow him to rest in peace without tarring his good name with incessant references to those two cinematic abominations. Everybody makes mistakes. That chick flick phase was just something he went through between good scripts. The man had to eat. Please cut the guy some slack.
And while we are on the subject of Patrick Swayze’s obit, every one should also contain a react from his “Roadhouse” co-star Terry Funk (who really cares what Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg think?!) and some reference to his classic SNL dancing skit with Chris Farley.
