Paging Johnny Utah

Encino, CA

There's this guy robbing banks in Encino. Two so far. A U.S. Bank the day before Thanksgiving and a Santa Barbara Bank & Trust this last Wednesday. Armed, calm and wearing a Nixon mask.

Now, I'm all for someone paying homage to Patrick Swayze movies, even if they do have Keanu Reeves. But there are so many to choose from. Why pick Point Break? Seems kind of obvious, doesn't it?

What's wrong with Dirty Dancing? Or Roadhouse? Or, my personal favorite, Skate Town, U.S.A.?

I mean, it had Flip Wilson in it. And Scott Baio. Scott freakin' Baio. Chachi, man. How cool is that?

And the tagline? "The Rock and Roller Disco Movie of the Year!"


Best name in the whole movie? Swayze's. Ace Johnson.

Gets you hard just thinking about it, doesn't it? Yeah, I thought so.

So, Mr. Ex-President Bandit, next time you hit up a place shake it up, would you? Go in drag as Vida, or dance your way in as Johnny Castle.

After all, nobody puts Baby in a corner.
