      James Plath Family Home Theater If it seems plot-starved (and it does), that's because it's basically an expansion of the popular story song.... Rated: C Jan 16, 2018 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Combustible Celluloid Sometimes Elvis Presley's movies are campy fun, but sometimes, as with Frankie and Johnny, they are lazy and dire, barely even able to muster anything ridiculous, let alone anything good. Rated: 1/4 Aug 24, 2017 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 2/5 Jul 2, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Michele B there's not too many elvis movies i'd say have good rewatch-ability but this is one that does so i was actually surprised by the low ratings for this film. i found this to be one of the more enjoyable movies that he did. there's nothing complex about the storyline so it's an easy watch and a very enjoyable one Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/19/23 Full Review steve d Much of the story is uncomfortable but Elvis is solid. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member You will have good luck with the red heads... Johnny is a riverboat entertainer and degenerate gambler that never wins at anything. One night a fortune teller informs him his luck will change when he finds a red head. The fortune comes true and Johnny feels he has found true love in lady luck; however, his girlfriend, Frankie, does not believe the fortune teller's tale is Johnny's true path. "How much did you lose tonight?" "How much did I have?" Frederick De Cordova, director of After the Honeymoon, I'll Take Sweden, Peggy, Here Comes the Nelsons, Illegal Entry, Wallflower, and Always Together, delivers Frankie and Johnny. The storyline for this picture is above average and contains dynamic and well portrayed characters. The acting is more fun than you may expect and the cast includes Elvis Presley, Donna Douglas, Harry Morris, Nancy Kovack, and Robert Strauss. "She is no gentlemen." I randomly DVR'd this during a recent Elvis marathon on cable. This was better than some of his films I have watched. I was fairly entertained by this and enjoyed watching this movie unfold. There are some clever twists throughout the movie and some of the writing made me chuckle. Overall, this is worth seeing once for fans of the classics. "In my next life I hope I'm not a girl." Grade: C+ Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member CAMPTASTIC Broadway awesomeness. THIS is exactly what you want out of a B-Elvis movie. All of the charm of a Gene Kelly flick with the nutty outfits of a Demy musical. It's a cute, simple character drama that doesn't over promise. If only the music was slightly better, this coulda been a full on 4 star film. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member I enjoyed the cast in this one as Donna & Elvis worked well together but, the story could have been better. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Une autre comédie musicale avec Elvis Presley appréciable. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
