Kissin' Cousins (1964)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

An Army man (Elvis) tries to talk his redneck cousin (Elvis) into letting the government put up a missile site on his property. As you can tell, the big story here is that Elvis plays a duel role and in fact he's the best thing about the movie but more on that later. The rest of the film is pretty damn lame from start to finish with horrible songs and horrible performance. With a title like this I was expecting a lot of Southern stereotypes but we don't even get any of that, which just makes the film all the more bland. The supporting players are all incredibly weak but I guess they knew how stupid the story was. The actual story never really makes any sense, which just makes the film a drag to go through. Back to Elvis, I thought he gave one of his better performances here in both roles. He spent time in the Army so he looked and acted very realistic in the scenes early on when "reporting" to higher officials. He was also a redneck so I thought he pulled the Southern thing off as well but what the hell was up with that blonde wig? The 'trick shots' used to hide The King's double are the only laughs in the film.
