Urban Cowboy
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 3.0 4.0

If I'm flipping through the channels and come across this movie, I will watch it. Urban Cowboy starts John Travolta. His character favorite hangout place is a roadhouse bar. There you'll see dancing, fighting, friends drinking, and of course, people riding on the mechanical bull. John Travolta does a great job in this movie. He does in every movie though. I love country music, country apparel, basically, I'm a fan of country everything. If you like country and John Travolta, then your going to want to watch this movie. It's a must see.
