Funny Movie Uses Stereotypes and Artistic License to Bulk Up Real Meeting
10 August 1999 | by (Canyon Lake, Texas) – See all my reviews

Fact is always stranger than fiction. However, this is a comedy. As such, I can't fault the producers for creating fiction around a real event.

The stereotypes serve well as background briefs to modern audiences who may not know squat about either the King or the President.

Elvis wanders the night, shoots television sets out at will, dresses like. ..well. . .Elvis and maintains his good old boy composure. Likewise, Nixon broods, works on his enemies list, and rattles off every Nixon trademark statement from various years.

There is a lot of humor in this film. Those who don't know the history of the times will probably be left dumbfounded.
