Goofs

Approximately 1h15m40s into the film, right after Elvis mentions a $5000 contribution to the DoJ Narcotics department, the shot changes to that of the blue carpet in the room where Nixon is briefed by Bob Haldeman. The seal on the carpet mistakenly reads "PLUAIBUS" in the "E PLURIBUS UNUM". See more »

Quotes

Richard M. Nixon: Hmm, maybe I should add the Beatles to my "enemies list."
Elvis Presley: You have an *enemies* list, sir?
Richard M. Nixon: Um, no.

Good parody...Excuse the liberties taken
18 April 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I admit I'm a sucker for movies with the real people being portrayed, especially when Elvis is one of the main characters. This is a very funny movie that purports to be factual, and yet the liberties are many, but since it a comedy really, I can excuse that. It's in all the reviews I've read so far, the one inconsistency that no one caught (and I really being picky here but I feel I have to mention it) and that is that Elvis drinks a Coke when he preferred Pepsi. This would probably simply product placement and nothing more. I mentioned it because I am a dedicated Coke drinker. But anyway, the way the two principals act is meant to be exaggerated. Certainly, Elvis wasn't quite so cloddish, but knowing what I know about Nixon, I don't think they were too far off the mark there. The lead, Rick Peters, does a very good impersonation of the KING, and I'm also a sucker for good impersonations, doing a few of them myself. I just wish I were half as good at doing Elvis, but this guy looks more like him that I ever could even if he isn't a dead ringer for the King. Perhaps the coolest thing about this movie are the real people whose comments appear in different parts of the film. People like Dick Cavett, Wayne Newton and Tony Curtis. My only problem with the movie is Elvis swearing.so much. I don't believe he did this so.frequently. It's worth checking out.
