This film was pretty cheesy and a stinker


Let me start right out by saying I'm not a fan of Elvis pictures, or even musicals in general. And I'll admit, sure, he's fun to watch, Ann-Margret is red-headed sex on a stick, and it's not the worst thing in the world to watch these two very gorgeous people singing and dancing together in glorious technicolor. But did this really pass as quality entertainment back then? Yikes! I felt embarrassed for both of them. This movie stunk on ice. Like I said, it's not bad watching them, and if you like this movie, that's fine, but woof! This thing is just not good.

What a ripoff of Ray Charles! I hope he got paid well for having one of his greatest songs massacred. Thank god he's blind and didn't have to see that number. Although I will say that that girl with the red dress on had a$$ that would go on for days. Yummy.

I'll also add that kid diving to the bottom of the pool to get Elvis' money was a total moron. I don't care how old you are - and that kid had to be at least 6 - nobody is stupid enough to pick up a fat wad of cash and lose it by putting it next to a pool filter.




I asked the doctor to take your picture so I can look at you from inside as well.

Nobody "ripped off" Ray Charles. Permission to use the song was obtained, and he was paid.

It wasn’t a great movie. The actors’ charisma, the songs, the visuals are the drawing points. The plot was weak.
