Movie Reviews

Hey, it's Elvis and it's in color! Were you expecting "West
lonniebeale | Memphis, TN | 08/28/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"A very funny film. The soundtrack was composed of old songs from earlier Elvis LPs (to keep the film's budget at a minimum). Elvis looks great and Jocelyn Lane looks incredible. In my opinion (along with many others), Jocelyn was the prettiest costar Elvis ever had. Julie Adams is very attractive as the "older" woman. Practically all of the women in the film are hot (and there are loads of groovy gals). In fact--although not intending to be--"Tickle Me" remains one of the best children's pictures ever. I certainly couldn't get enough of it when it played at the local theater when I was in grade school. I went back to see it again five times! What can I say? Puberty calling! [filmfactsman]"
Objectively speaking, a pretty good comedy!

"I tended to forget the enthusiastic response of that Saturday matinee audience back in '65 and my enjoyment hearing many terrific Presley songs for the first time (little did I know then that only one was recorded specifically for the flick - and that one was a RERECORDING!) and believe many critics appraisal of the picture, which led me to dismiss it as another unworthy E.P. vehicle. Well, a few years back I gave it a second chance and found it to be a well-put together, genuine slapstick comedy for the whole family - not really: despite the middle-aged actors in ghost getups and the many silly sight gags, it remains in the "adult" category (even though my Warner Home Video does not include the shocking line I recall from earlier viewings). Anyway, the ladies-only health spa/dude ranch setting leads to some fairly salty dialogue (one scene involves an embrace with his boss Julie Adams, whose good performance also has been overlooked, leading to an unusual Elvis audience aside, or camera look, which is very interesting). The writers also give Elvis a chance to kind of poke fun at his screen character: in an early scene he relates to a bar owner that his job fell through and he's out of work. The guy reaches for a GEEtar, hands it to Elvis, who says "...I know". It's brilliant! Later in the film, in a nice dream sequence with Elvis and Jocelyn Lane in old time Western gear, he AGAIN satirizes the proceedings. These bits and pieces need to be noticed more. Yes, Elvis' comedic abilities are well projected in this formula flick - it's his best comedy acting since "Follow That Dream"."
Elvis + Jocelyn Lane = perfect match

"Finally on DVD !!! - I cannot believe that it's taken this long to release this Elvis film ( together with Girl Happy ).
Get's five stars because you get Elvis with his sexiest, most gorgeous ever co-star, plus it's funny, entertaining and has really good songs.
Brings back some great memories from my childhood Saturday matinee days, when I was fascinated with Elvis and he became my hero and idol.
Jocelyn Lane is stunningly, knockout beautiful - she definately made me Girl Happy and want Girls, Girls, Girls.

See Elvis take on the rodeo and robbers and a ghost house

"A rather underrated happy go lucky Elvis film from 1965. Songs better than normal as they were not written specifically for the movie, and had been recorded in the ealy sixties. Some of the sets a bit below par, but that was because the movie company was virtually bankrupt, (hence the reason for using previously recorded songs). The box office revenue saved the company for a few more years. The last 20 minutes is a real hoot and in places will make you jump as people move around the creepy deserted hotel. The partnership between Elvis and his sidekick is very amusing in places. OK so it's not Oscar material, but keep an open mind, and if your not an Elvis fan, you might be pleasantly surprised."
