Audience Reviews for The Trouble with Girls

For an Elvis movie his presence here is strictly secondary and he is sidelined throughout. Seems like it wanted to be more than it was, which is a run of the mill mystery with a few songs thrown in. Of more interest as a chance to spot the familiar face in small parts than anything else. Hey look there's Vincent Price and Buffy from Family Affair and Cindy Brady and WOW look how young Dabney Coleman is! At least the film is loaded with reliable performers, Sheree North, Edward Andrews, Marlyn Mason, John Carradine etc. they just aren't given much to work with. Not a ghastly film just very ordinary.

A typical Elvis movie plot and story, it's a pretty average movie, and not all that exciting. I don't know why Vincent Price had a small role i this movie, but he does, it's not a great role, he's just kinda there. Anyway, it's an okay movie.

Definitely one of the weirder Elvis movies- he's only in it for about 30 minutes. But then again, so is everybody else; its an ensemble cast of equally boring parts. The concept wasn't terrible, the movie is essentially about corruption, from nepotism to murder, all on the backdrop of an idealogical religious and educational experience. (I'm honestly not sure if I should read into that either.)
Bonus points for Elvis' perfect sideburns and fly suits. Also great music choices for him.
