PG | 116 min | Crime, Drama, Musical

A good film, that happens to have Elvis singing. There are plenty of film that get good actors to pretend to be good at something that they are not good at and cannot pretend to be good at. For once they picked a good actor to pretend to be good at something he was good at and it shows. With a good supporting cast. Note; I forgot to include Double Trouble in this list, and I think that about sums up the film!
