Maybe there's no such thing as a good Elvis Presley movie, but this one comes close, and not just because it costars Ann-Margret at the top of her powers. It has a lot more going for it, too.
Not the plot. That never amounts to much in an Elvis movie. This time he's in Las Vegas to compete in a road race. His car needs a new engine, though, so he works as a waiter to raise the money. He also falls for Ann-Margret, and who can blame him? Did you take a look at the trailer?
What it does have is Las Vegas in the '60s in Technicolor. And Ann-Margret. Or did I mention her already? Okay, maybe I did, but in this movie she and Elvis have real on-screen chemistry, something that was lacking in a lot of the other Elvis flicks. Check the trailer again if you don't believe me. And it even has a pretty good soundtrack, something that was sorely lacking in most of the King's films, which were usually filled with duds.
I never recommend Elvis movies to anybody. Most of them are pretty bad, and they got steadily worse as his movie career started to wind down. But this one is a lot of fun.
