Only a few songs as Elvis plays it straight as Dr John Carpenter. Mary Tyler Moore stars opposite as an incognito nun with a mission to help Dr Elvis clean up the ghetto he lives in. Can the King compete against God for Mary's heart? He can if anyone can. Written by

Yet another Elvis movie that shows how underrated his acting abilities are.
Change of Habit has a gripping story, at the heart of which lies a conflict that will speak to anyone who's ever had a conscience.
This is not a preachy movie, however, and it is not depressing, despite the subject matter. Adding humour works. Making this film heavy would cause it to be inaccessible to all but the hard core Big Depressing World Issues Movies fans.
