Ratings & Reviews

  • A zinger-filled crowd-pleaser that open-minded Elvis fans (but by no means all) will have fun with. show more

  • It's a credit to the actors, particularly the superb Campbell, that completely preposterous material can be made strangely touching. show more

  • Endearing and vulgar in about the right proportion. The movie doesn't exactly work, but sometimes when a car won't start, it's still fun to look at the little honey gleaming in the driveway. show more
