Did You Know?


Country music singer Ricky Van Shelton, who covers the Elvis song "Wear My Ring Around Your Neck" for the film, has a cameo as one of the Flying Elvises in the airplane as confirmed by Shelton in an interview at the time of the film's release. (He did not, however, jump from the plane). See more »


When instructing Jack how to operate his parachute, the leader of the Flying Elvises (Utah chapter) tells Jack to pull the yellow lever. He then tells him if his chute doesn't open, he is to pull the red lever to activate the reserve chute. After Jack jumps, he pulls the yellow lever and then immediately pulls the red. According to the Flying Elvises leader, this should have activated both parachutes. See more »

A must for Elvis fans
27 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

As an Elvis fanatic, this movie is a necessity. Its possible it contains the word "Elvis" more than any other mainstream movie. The impersonators of every nationality, the Flying Elvises at the climax and, as user 'lawndale' pointed out, the soundtrack is one of the best.

Aside from the King, there is still a very funny movie here. Cage was doing small comedies at the time ("Guarding Tess" and "It Could Happen to You" are two of them), and this fits in with those other light entertainments, as far as that goes. He does 'frustrated' comedy pretty well; Ben Stiller would have been in this if it were made today, since he seems to be the new 'victim' in today's comedies. All the comedy is totally dependent on Cage's performance, and he delivers in ways I would not have thought possible. His next trip to Vegas (in "Leaving Las Vegas")should have been as much fun.
