John Corbett made sure Heineken had paid for product placement before he would drink one on camera. The producers insisted they had been paid and then Corbett insisted he should get paid also. The producers agreed and Corbett drank joyfully from the apple juice-filled familiar green bottle. See more »
(At 19.00) In one of Harmony's 1950s flashbacks her mother has an Elvis song for every car problem. "Always On My Mind" is said to represent 'a flat tire'. The song was actually written in the 1970s and recorded by Elvis in 1972. See more »

I've recently seen ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING. I was a guest at a private screening.
Kim Basinger plays a very good part and John Corbett is suave and cool. The movie is very entertaining and combined with the original ELVIS tracks adds a great balance. Pat Morita makes a cameo appearance and Sean Austin and Denise Richards add to an already impressive cast. Joel Zwick the director does a great job and we see him play the 'squashed elvis'. I was also surprised to see TOM HANKS play the 'mailbox elvis'.
BMG have the soundtrack for worldwide distribution and includes 8 Elvis original masters plus 4 cover songs: Norah Jones singing "LOVE ME TENDER, famous d.j. Paul Oakenfold remix of I GOT STUNG (his last remix was A LITTLE LESS CONVERSATION). Melissa Etheridge singing HARD HEADED WOMAN and Baby Face singing the ballad of IT'S NOW OR NEVER.
Elvis lives, see the movie its good fun.
