Not the worst. Not the best.

I still remember when I first saw this movie on television and the entrance of Don Johnson as Elvis made me laugh out loud. His high pitched voice was so unlike Elvis, it was almost like a Saturday Night Live routine that was SUPPOSED to be ridiculous. Stephanie Zimbalist I found impressive as an actress, but the only reason I could see to watch this movie at all was to hear Ronnie McDowell's excellent voice impression of Elvis seen on stage. As expected, the Las Vegas jumpsuits were perfect, but it isn't enough to make this anything but an interesting curio. Better to watch the Kurt Russell film "Elvis," directed by John Carpenter. They need little bit of trivia. Elvis Presley did play a character named John Carpenter in one of his later films.
