An energetic musical you can't help but like.
20 October 1999 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Elvis' first post army movie is about what? A G.I. in West Germany wants to buy a nightclub in Oklahoma. Tulsa McLain (Elvis) takes on a wager that he hopes will solve his money problems. He is to stay the night with ice cold, leggy dancer, Lili(Juliet Prowes). Girl dances for boy; boy sings for girl. But baby sitting becomes the problematic solution to the plot. A more grown up look for Elvis and a great soundtrack that is more pop than rock.
