One of the most enjoyable comedies I've seen in awhile!!
10 July 2009 | by night_wng2000See all my reviews

The only reason I don't give this a higher rating, is that while it is a really fun and entertaining film, parts are a bit campy (but due to the style of the film, it doesn't distract from the story or the acting). The last time I saw a really good impersonation of Elvis, was Kurt Russell, in Elvis (1979-TV). I heard that he even sang the music in that one. This isn't really about the music, as much as it is a mystery/thriller, with a who-done-it slant thrown in. The actors did a great job. I thought Patrick did a credible impersonation, and I'm even a bit surprised that he looked like "The King". The comedy is light, but it's because the jokes/one-liners are only to make this fun. It's not meant to make you fall out of your chair laughing. I like how the crew was able to keep you guessing, as to who did what. They make it so you have to even ask yourself whether "Mr. Aaron", to protect his anonymity, may be guilty. All in all, as I said previous, one of the most enjoyable films I've seen. I have to also give kudos to the artist who sang the Elvis songs. While a true fan can tell it's not the real Elvis, the singer still did a wonderful job
