"Elvis Presley stars as Lieutenant Ted Jackson, a Naval SCUBA diver, who discovers a sunken ship while deactivating a mine. He decides not to re-enlist and teams up with his former band member and partner Pat Harrington, the notorious maintenance man of "One Day at a Time" fame, to help him find a possible treasure in the shipwreck. However, the best character in this movie is yoga teacher Elsa Lanchester, who played the Bride of Frankenstein, co-starring with Boris Karloff. The soundtrack is excellent, with Elvis singing and strumming six wacky tunes, including the unforgettable "Yoga Is as Yoga Does"."
It had potential, but some songs ruined it

"Yesterday (10-11-01) I saw Easy Come, Easy Go for the first time. As it got underway with Elvis in the Navy in charge of getting rid of mines, I thought it had a chance to be one of Elvis' best, particularly with the catchy title song and the fact that Elvis had trimmed down some from his 1966 efforts (he probably also did it as he was getting ready to marry Priscilla.)The basic storyline had potential, and I was really getting into the movie until the "Yoga" song and the portrayal of the beatnick theme that was popular in the 1960s. After that, you think "Elvis just going through the motions again. How can he let himself be treated this way by the Colonel?"The movie does make somewhat of a recovery as the race to the treasure begins and Elvis gets into one of his best fight scenes on the opposition's boat.Definitely boilerplate Presley vehicle that, with a few changes, could have been deemed among his top five movies out of the 33 he made."
What a formula. Goes to show you, only times changed.

""Easy Come, Easy Go" is a likeable in some sense. Elvis is a Navy frogman who's on a search for buried treasure hidden in a sunken ship under the sea. He finds it's linked to Dodie Marshall and with her help he tries to find it. But, there are some unwelcome searchers looking for it too. One of them being the enticing Pat Preist of "Munsters" fame. When the treasure is found, it's all in copper. But, they're able to get some money out of it. A good thousand or so dollars. Elvis' characters were never money hungry. This film has got all the '60s fads and fashions: yoga crazes, body painting, spaghetti/body art, swinging dance moves, swinging music, and a wheel full of girls called "The Love Machine". That one's a great movie song that's often looked down upon. It's so '60s themed like the Bond movie "Casino Royale" is. Take about 95 minutes out of your life and see this swinging flick."
Not Really An Apt Title

"I remember managing to find a drive-in that was showing the first run ECEG; and I remember my girlfriend not saying a word while we watched. She was too kind. In retrospect, it was so totally wrong for the time that one almost has to respect it. I say almost. It was a numbing experience then and the most one can say for it now is: At least the Elvis impersonators will leave it alone. The story is weak, the co-stars are painful, and the soundtrack so bad, the weakest selling record of Elvis' career managed to kill of the Extended Playing record. But , for all that, it is Elvis, and the true beliver will find something in it worth carrying away. Its just best watched alone."
