A bad movie? With Elvis in it? You've got to be kidding.
No film with Elvis Presley in it is a bad film. His acting is great and his singing is great. His songs aren't always the best, but they are good. There is also always an attractive female lead.
One reviewer on this film said there are no laughs. There are two things to laugh at here; him and the comedy in the film. Another reviewer said that Elvis was wooden in this movie and didn't try that hard. That is just stupid. Elvis is not wooden and always gave it his best shot. With such a good story and soundtrack I can't understand what was so wrong with this movie. I enjoy this movie and so do other Elvis Presley fans. So all of you people out to bash Elvis and his movies just back off. He was the King of Rockin Roll. When his movies where in theaters he was the king of the box office so just leave it at that. Check this movie out. Don't listen to any of the negative reviews. See it. You won't be disappointed.
