    Is Frankie & Johnny Really Elvis' Worse Movie?


  2. #2

    .

    No, IMO.

    At least it had a relatively plausible plot, like all of Elvis' movies.

    With the exception of Harum Scarum. A far east country kidnaps an American movie star because of his "martial arts" prowess in order to assassinate the king? And he falls in love with a princess to boot?!

    Awful. Just awful.

    Harum Scarum beats Frankie and Johnny for worst movie, hands down.

    I think 'Live A Little, Love A Little' was Elvis' worst film. There were only about four other people in the film which had a poor storyline. However, Elvis looked great and that saved it.

    Frankie and Johnny was bad, indeed. Harum Scarum was not a good movie either but two beautiful songs were included in it; "Kismet" and "So close yet so far from paradise".

    I watched some of it on sunday but got bored half way through, i think elvis looked big around the stomach area in this film and he seemed uncomfortable.

    Frankie & Johnny was not as bad as, IMO, Paradise Hawaiian Style. That movie was just boring for me. There was a beginning and an end and no middle save him singing and picking up girls. Just a bad script. Harem Scarem I liked a little better,but not by much & that title is just plain stupid, too. I prefer the title Harem Holiday to Harem Scarem!


    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go

    I'm talking about the actual plot here.

    Harum Scarum was the worst plot of any film.

    Simply beyond ridiculous.

    Easy Come Easy Go is handsdown Elvis worst movie: Elvis looked un healthy and uninspired, the soundtrack was really bad and the script wasn't even funny, it was plain silly (friendly word for stupid)

    Many of the bad movies are my favourite soundtracks: Harum Scarum, Paradise Hawaiian Style and Frankie&Johnny... I'll see you in court

    IMO The Trouble with Girls is Elvis' worse movie, the only part of that movie that I like to watch is the scene where he is sitting playing the piano singing Almost

    The movie was absolutely horrible. Elvis, however, looked utterly gorgeous!

    Without reading any other responses, I'm going to say NO WAY!
    The worst by far, in fact the only one I HATE, is "the Trouble with Girls".

    I love that song from it Clean up your own backyard, but that is the only
    thing I can take from that film.

    Yes, I find Trouble With Girls is the most boring Elvis film. If you compare what he has to do and say to the other key actors you will feel very short changed!

    Harum Scarum for sure. Frankie and Johnny is running a close second.
    If your an Elvis fan, no explanation is necessary....
    If your not, no explanation is possible!

    No way. F&J has some great lines:

    "What am I? A memory expert"

    The search for a red head outside the ladies room - "Heaven only knows"

    "Go away old man"

    Thinking about it though, these are all lines from the older chap. Some of the funniest in an Elvis film though.
