Not a bad movie at all!
14 August 2002 | by (Bakersfield, California USA) – See all my reviews

I've read all those negative comments about "Clambake" from the other users here, and I fail to understand what they're all talking about. Maybe it's not rated the best but I think "Clambake" is Cool with a capital C. Elvis portrays an oil heir that's had a belly full of false friends apparently just because he's rich or actually it's his dad Duster Heyward that's the actual tycoon. His son Scott (Elvis) is offered the opportunity to change places with a buddy he meets at a hamburger stand, who notices the attention Scott gets from a girl, once she sees his shiny red convertible. Scott explains to Tom why this is the problem he's having, "I'd like to know it's myself! Not my car, not my money" Tom tells Scott "That's the kind of problem I'd like to have. So anytime you want to switch places just say the word!" Apparently Scott does say the word then Scott becomes "Tom Wilson" and Tom becomes "Scott Heyward. Then it's off to the hotel where "Tom" meets Diane (Shelley Fabares) and asks "Tom" to give her a ski lesson so she could meet the famous boat racer and tycoon James J. Jamison III (Bill Bixby) who "Tom" competes with for Diane Carter. In the end "Tom Wilson" (the King) creates a formula to keep the critical boat sturdy which he races in, wins the race (hopefully), and of course what Elvis does in most every other movie, wins the girl. The plot is great and the cast and crew are all magnificent. On a scale of 1 to 10 I give it a 9.9.
