    An iconic soundtrack + Debra Winger rides a mechanic bull = Good enough for me.

    A don't give a shrimp about bullriding or any other country bullshit, but how wasn't Travolta nominated for anything?

    Silly, misogynist, not enough two-stepping.

    Yes, for real. It's that good.

    Nothing actually happens in this movie. No character growth, no interesting story, not even a conflict worth getting riled up about. Just a bunch of unlikable white trash good for nothings killing time until they drink or fight themselves to death. Or fall off a mechanical bull the wrong way (which is what I was hoping would happen but never did). And this pointless movie is over two hours long.

    this movie is pretty good. in a surprising twist, the female lead is the sympathetic character and hot young john travolta is kind of a dick. it's a surprising twist unless of course you've seen staying alive, which has more or less the same plot. subbing in mechanical bull riding for dance here. JT looks to die for in a white tshirt, cowboy hat and jeans

    In an alternate universe, this is a more plotless movie about all the folks who frequent Gilley's. One plot line follows a country boy who's new to Houston; he falls in love with a girl at the club and wins her affections after defeating a rival wooer in a mechanical bulls riding contest. Unfortunately in this universe, that plot line is extended to 132 minutes, becoming the entire story. FULL DISCLOSURE: If I don't love a romance, I typically will…

    There was something bothering me about this film as I was watching it. I couldn't quite put my finger on it. It wasn't that basically none of the characters were particularly likable. I've seen plenty of movies with nasty characters. Travolta's Bud is an abusive, ignorant all too typical male Texan the sort of which I've seen my entire life. So that wasn't it. It's the fact that there's no real story, no real character arc, no real growth. Bud…

    I very much enjoy young John Travolta's deeply insecure, desperately overcompensating boyish characters he does so well. Debra Winger was also extremely adorable and likable.
