Girls, Girls, Girls / Girl Happy DVD Review

GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS


One of Elvis Presley's biggest moneymakers, Girls Girls Girls casts ol' swivel-hips as a tuna-boat fisherman working out of Hawaii. Elvis chases after all the wrong girls, while ignoring the girls who genuinely care for him. Here, as Ross Carpenter, Presley has two main love interests: sexy vocalist Robin (Stella Stevens and heiress Laurel (Laurel Goodwin), who pretends to be poor so as not to wound Ross's pride. When rude 'n' crude Wesley Johnson (Jeremy Slate), who owns Ross's boat, makes a play for Laurel, Ross punches him out. He loses his boat, but it hardly matters since he and Laurel have found true love. Songs crucial to the action are the title tune, "Return to Sender," and "Song of the Shrimp."

This is one that I watch about three times a year. One of my top Elvis movies. It's fun, some really good songs and Elvis at the top of his game.

I give it a good 7 and a half stars. Okay, maybe an 8.

GIRL HAPPY


A Chicago mobster hires a rock and roll singer and his band to keep an eye on his daughter during Spring Break in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

It's Elvis on Spring Break. I find this one somewhat comical and very entertaining. However, there are parts in this movie that seem to drag. While I do like this one a lot, just not in my top ten of Elvis flicks.

I still give it a solid 6 stars.
