Critic Reviews for Loving You
The show-biz musical about a country boy with a unique sound... is a streamlined and sanitized retake on the story of Elvis...
Pretty good early Elvis with nice title song.
Audience Reviews for Loving You
This is what I would have expected from Elvis' debut film. It's not bad, but it's also pretty boringly straight forward. It's the old cliché story of the scrappy rural kid nobody who climbs his way to stardom through honest hard work and overcoming his insecurities. Elvis is being Elvis but you want more insight into him-- not the superficial mommy issues and upright perfect moral boy stuff. Also come on they could have thought of a better name than DEKE Rivers... terrible. Points for all of the amazing western wear and Elvis looking cute.
Early Elvis that, probably due to distribution problems, is his most obscure. A decent if unexceptional film that contains one of his more popular songs "Teddy Bear" as well as the title tune. It tells a simple tale of a country bumpkin looking for a place in the world and incidently having a great voice and star power to burn. While most Elvis films except for his worse usually have at least one quality performer, Barbara Stanwyck in Roustabout, Gig Young in Kid Galahad, Angela Lansbury in Blue Hawaii etc., this one has one of the better casts with Lizabeth Scott, Wendell Corey and in the first film of her brief pre-convent career Dolores Hart. A pleasant entertainment.
OMG another recycled girl, although this was the first time she was in an Elvis movie so the other one was really her recycled moment. I didn't really see how autobiographical it was, but apparently it was supposed to be a little bit, but if this one was Jailhouse Rock was just the same. It was pretty good, although I do have to admit that hearing the begining on the same song five times in a row does get on my nerves a little bit.
