A cookie cutter creation, churned out for an existing fan base and little else.

Audience Reviews for Paradise, Hawaiian Style

As a travelogue it's very pretty but as a decent movie it's a pretty empty exercise. But hey look there's Mr. Takagi from Die Hard as Elvis' business partner!

Super Reviewer


One of the more watchable ones-- beautiful setting, wonderfully shot, great helicopter stunts, actual diversity with no casual racism and Elvis mackin' on every single girl in Hawaii. If only they cut the kid songs and maybe pumped up the plot a bit this coulda been a full three stars.

Sometimes it was a little cheesey for me, and I like musicals, but they just seemed to be bursting into song for no apparent reason. The little girl was really cute, but I think they should have gone with the story line of the secretary a little further, because I like tom boys who still know how to everything that the guys do.
