When a hotelier attempts to fill the chronic vacancies at his castle by launching an advertising campaign that falsely portrays the property as haunted, two actual ghosts show up and end up falling for two guests.
A nerdy valedictorian proclaims his love for the hottest and most popular girl in school - Beth Cooper - during his graduation speech. Much to his surprise, Beth shows up at his door that very night and decides to show him the best night of his life.
The scene in the movie where Elvis'character is called out to sing a song from the jukebox, is actually a re-creation of the scene from the 1957 Presley movie, "Loving You". The scene is eerily remiscent, right down to how the guy Elvis belts, falls down, slowly across the jukebox, as another Presley song starts to blare out across the diner. See more »
When Elvis and Marie go to escape the crowd, Marie asks Elvis, "Can you row a boat?" Elvis replies "Can I row? Didn't you ever see 'King Creole?'" - Elvis did have a scene on a boat in "King Creole," but it was a steamboat... no rowing required. See more »
I have seen this film a few times, and I really do like it. Its a nice fictional story, set in the 80's. By this time Elvis obviously didn't die young, and is in his 60's, or at least getting old. Johnny helps his mum who owns a hotel. When he see's his mother in distress, he and a friend kidnaps Elvis in a bid to gain her happiness again. At first Elvis is furious, but he soon begins to live and let live, and a friendship and bond ensues between them all.
It is a pleasant film, and enjoyable. May not be to everyones taste, but I liked it.
With a good soundtrack, and good acting, it really isn't a bad film.
