Sonny pushes up his sleeves and takes on the KING!
2 November 2004 | by rtsennSee all my reviews

WOW! This is the worst Elvis tribute movie I have ever seen. Don Johnson is HORRIBLE! Looking at him in the cheesy wig and over the top jump suits almost made me puke. This is supposed to be a docudrama, it is neither! I know that this movie is from Linda Thompson's perspective but man is it ever bad writing.

Elvis is an icon and an American treasure. The filmmakers should have been required to run this by E's estate. As a die hard Elvis fan I would never recommend anyone see this film. "Elvis" with Kurt Russell is the definitive Elvis tribute and the singing by Russell is awesome! His reprise in "3000 Miles to Graceland" is awesome as well.

There is a reason that Don Johnson is out of work, and this film shows why! He should stick to singing "Heartbeat" and leave the Elvis songs to the KING!
