Blue Hawaii Reviews
Chad has recently been released from the military and returns home to Hawaii to find a girlfriend who expects him to settle down and live a normal lifestyle and parents who want him to prepare to take over the family business. Unfortunately, Chad wants to pick his own path and rebels against both directions. He may find those that love him have his best interest at heart and he may need to compromise.
"How could you kiss that girl?"
"It was easy."
Norman Taurog, director of Boys Town, GI Blues, Dr. Goldfoot and the Bikini Machine, Speedway, The Birds and the Bees, Men of Boys Town, and Mad about Music, delivers Blue Hawaii. The storyline for this picture is fairly cheesy, cliché, and contains mediocre writing and characters. The acting is average and the cast includes Elvis Presley, Joan Blackman, Angela Lansbury, Roland Winters, and Steve Brodie.
"Daddy, are you forgetting yourself?"
I recently came across an Elvis marathon on cable and decided to DVR a few pics. This was very cheesy and did not take itself too seriously. The plot just seemed like an excuse to rollout Elvis and his music. He had charisma, but needed a well written film. I'd skip this unless you are a diehard Elvis fan.
"That dog is just plain stupid."
but it wasn't as fun as the other cool Hawaiian classics with Elvis...
It's been decades since the King himself has sung live or made a movie, because of his untimely death. Regardless his spirit still lives on through the big screen. The film focuses on Old meets New Hawaii, with breath taking landscape and local Hot spots to this day are still popular. The film excites it's audience with catchy tunes like: 'Fools Fall in Love' Elvis' Greatest #1 hits to date.
