Very Pleasantly Surprised!
10 September 2009 | by jaylveckSee all my reviews

I really wanted to see this when I read that there was some Elvis content. At first I thought it was going to be some really lame movie. It exceeded my expectations and I loved it! I didn't actually see a rating but my daughter and I watched it and we laughed pretty good! I will be watching this again. And who is this Lindsay Price? She is sure beautiful and talented! I would love to hear her sing! The King is portrayed by Patrick just perfectly. We never got to know what Elvis would have been like had he lived, but I believe this is as good and believable as it could get. He even looks like a well aged Elvis. A wonderful job! I love this movie, I really do! It was well thought out by people who actually are Elvis fans otherwise they wouldn't have done such a good job. As for Jay Mohr, for some reason, I wasn't thrilled that he was in the movie at first. Why, I don't know. But he was really great, the face he makes under the bed of Hank Hankerson is absolutely hilarious!! When I saw that, I knew I was watching a movie I would like. I am definitely a fan of Mr. Mohr. Loved it and the plot!
