Abysmal waste of talent on stupid script that has no point and insulting stereotypes. The biggest shame is the casting of two great actresses, Joan Blondell and Katy Jurado, and not just criminally underusing them but throughly wasting them in terrible parts. Elvis movies are a scattershot bunch but this has to be one of the worst.

HORRIBLE. Easily the worst Elvis movie. Terrible characters, racist stereotypes, zero plot... I wanted to punch Quentin Dean's character in the face, obnoxious 19 year old who acts like a 9 year old sex doll airhead. Shot like a bad Terry Gilliam movie too. The only redeeming factor of this film is the opening scene in which Elvis herds a group of cattle in his white Cadillac convertible. Amazing.

A 1.5 star movie that Elvis elevates to a 2.5 movie.....the script he was given was very weak but he plays the role confidently. If he can do this with a script like this, imagine what he would have done with a much better movie? Another missed opportunity but at least Elvis makes the most with it. Worth seeing if an Elvis fan, otherwise stay away.

Elvis and the Penguin, Burgess Meredith play Native Americans- which isn't as offensive as it sounds. But it's not good either. Heart of gold Joe works with congress to get his father some cattle subsidies. But beyond heart of gold, he's also an asshole that puts his dick into anything that moves. Lots of drinkin' and fightin' scenes. I couldn't have believed that there's be a worse Elvis movie than Clambake, but this one is.

The main plot for the movie was pretty much lacking. What saved the movie from me turning it off were the off collar jokes and the sub plots with the girl and the crazy mom as well as Joe's sister. It does have some good moments but for the most part it seemed like just a reason for guys to be guys who just go around fighting eachother.

This was absolutely terrrible! The plot was so simple: An Navajo named Joe Whitecloud makes a deal with some American Congressman to give a herd of cattle to his Joe's father, Charlie Lightcloud, to breed. That night, Joe throws a party and they end up roasting the only male bull! Meanwhile, Joe is constantly sweet-talking girls, angering their boyfriends, and trying to keep all heck from breaking loose. I do not know what the Director was thinking or even the writers. Most of the film is suppose to be physical slapstick comedy. Perhaps, if there was a better plot, more likeable characters, and less stereo-casting, this film may have been decent....
