Movie Info

One woman's unusual relationship with rock & roll's greatest icon leads her into an unexpected romance in this comedy. Harmony Jones (Kim Basinger) saw Elvis Presley in concert when she was a child, and the event had a profound impact on her, as she communicates with the youthful spirit of the King of Rock 'n' Roll on a regular basis. However, Harmony has notoriously bad luck with Elvis impersonators, who tend to drop dead when she's around. After accidentally running into a carload of Elvis tribute performers, Harmony abandons her career selling cosmetics door to door and hits the road, hoping to outrun the lawmen who are now on her trail. As Harmony roams the highways, she meets Miles Taylor (John Corbett), a lawyer from New York City trying to escape some troubles of his own. Directed by Joel Zwick, who made the surprise hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Elvis Has Left the Building also stars Annie Potts, Sean Astin, and Billy Ray Cyrus.

Elvis is one continuous groaner of a comedy.

...it's easy enough to see why [the film] never quite made it to theaters.

Reel Film Reviews

When it comes to Hollywood's ability to pay homage to one of the world's greatest icons, Elvis has really left the building.

Audience Reviews for Elvis Has Left the Building

[center][img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/movie/coverv/92/246092.jpg[/img][/center] [center] [/center] [left]Sometimes it's the little movies that surprise you. My wife and I got this one from Blockbuster this weekend. We weren't sure what to think about it but we put it into the player anyway. What we got was a surprisingly entertaining movie. this isn't your summer blockbuster. In fact I don't think it ever really got to the theaters. But it was a fun movie to watch none the less.[/left] [left] [/left] [left]What we have here is a character, Kim Basingers, who as a child met Elvis. Since then she's had an odd connection with him. Suddenly, everywhere she turns there are Elvis impersonators....and they are all dying right in front of her! It's as if she were killing them. With the FBI on her tail, she cuts across the states towards Las Vegas and Elvis convention. She comes across a man who she starts to fall for...till she see's he's got an Elvis costume in hand![/left] [left] [/left] [left]The best cameo of the movie is by Tom Hanks. He doesn't say a word and only makes a face...in fact he doesn't move a muscle....But it's priceless.[/left] [left] [/left] [left]If your looking for a sweet romantic, simple comedy movie this is it. A perfect saturday/sunday afternoon while it's raining outside type of movie.[/left]
