Trivia

The movie was set in 1982, which works since Rosanne was born in 1952, making it impossible to remember the first Elvis craze. See more »

Slight, simple slice of life set in America's heartland in 1982, concerning the lives of a housewife/Elvis lover, her two daughters, and her on/off husband.

Enjoyable if only for atypically straight performances by Roseanne and Tom Arnold, plus a chance to check out a lesser-known performance by Danielle Harris.

**1/2 out of ****.
