GAL APPROVED! Inside Prime Video’s Road House NYC Premiere—Watch It This Weekend!

By   |   March 22, 2024   |   Entertainment, Gal Approved

Road House is back! The cast and VIP guests were in New York City this week to celebrate this no-hold-barred slugfest of a movie!

Here’s the plot: Dalton, a former UFC fighter, accepts a four-week gig as a bouncer at a Florida Keys roadhouse, only to realize that the quick cash offered comes with drama and more than a few attempted sucker punches. A remake of the 1980s flick with Patrick Swayze,  the film opens with Post Malone delivering a beatdown encouraged by raging fans and setting the tone for what’s to come.  The real star of the film is  Jake Gyllenhaal‘s washboard abs. They chew up the screen and melt hearts. They inspire us to race to the gym and cut out all carbs. We weren’t disappointed seeing that on the big screen at Jazz at Lincoln Center.

As the film progresses, you see Connor McGregor as a deranged and laughing muscle man for hire. Darren Barnet, the cutie from the Netflix hit series Never Have I Ever, also plays against type as a croony for bad boy Brandt, played by Billy Magnussen. We’ll claim it: the men in this adrenaline-fueled fight movie are a feast for the eyes. The violence is cartoonish, but we are there for the fun and the tongue-in-cheek of it all.

After the screening, we descended into The Appel Room for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

We met many of the film’s stars there, including Barnet, Dominique Columbus and Hannah Love Lanier, the 16-year-old star who left the premiere party early because her mother (her date) explained, “It’s bedtime!”
