I smell a Tony!

Point Break, the 1992 so-bad-it's-good Keanu Reeves movie about surfers who moonlight as bankrobbers, is becoming a play called Point Break live. Yes, a play. And that's not the best part. The best part is that everynight they will choose someone from the audience to play the Keanu Reeves part. (h/t Jeff) The show, which garnered a “Seattle P-I Best of Seattle 2004” award, as well as rave reviews across the nation, tells the story of former College football star Johnny Utah—Keanu Reeves in the film—in pursuit of the bankrobbing, skydiving, bare-hand-fighting adrenaline-junkie-cum-Zenmaster Bodhi Sattva (Patrick Swayze—here played by Gearick Matthies), and features armed robbery, big-wave surfing, car chases, explosions, and no less than two extended skydiving sequences. Best of all, the starring role of Keanu will be selected at random from the audience each night, and will read their entire script off of cue-cards! Cue in classic Keanu Reeves line: "Whoa"!

Fantastic. We'll be able to hear again some this wonderful dialogue.

Possibly one of the best bad movies of all time, along with Armageddon.

Isander: I think the best bad movie of all time is hands down Roadhouse with Patrick Swayze. That movie is soo bad and stupid, but u can't help but like it!

Nope, you all missed it, the worst film is 'Waterworld' although if you really want to get don and party then 'Battlefield Earth' is a total stinker.
