1972. My family needed some help, my town needed a hero, and my band needed a break. So I borrowed Mom's pink Cadillac and I kidnapped Elvis Presley, and our lives were never the same again. 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 »
Maybe I oughtta go back to the old way of doing things. Really rock 'em again!
Hell, you can't afford to take a chance like that, E. What about your image?
Can't afford it? Man, when I was broke I could afford to do anything I wanted!

Now I'm a millionaire. Can't afford to do a damned thing.

HEARTBREAK HOTEL takes the viewer on a light hearted "what if" fantasy ride to the world of the Elvis of 1972. The makers of this movie were certainly Elvis fans. There is a good amount of detailed inside information about Elvis and the plot respects his musical talents, although there is some poking fun at his personal habits.
HEARTBREAK HOTEL accomplishes exactly what it sets out to do. I hope more rock 'n roll fantasy movies will be made in the future.
