Fun film that Elvis fans will love, nothing new but the music is great.
As it may have aged, the plot and songs have. Not a classic, just an aged film with a star of talent!
The best movie song ever sung: the title song!
Nice Hollywood musical ...filmed in Hawaii in color which makes it nicer . Too many songs and a plot w no denouement ....but something about it survives the decades ! (Maybe elvis in smug proto speedos and crooning softly of love and sunsets every five minutes?).
All sexism aside , it's mostly a girls movie ( well, it's good for dudes , too. A lotta twistin' babes!).
A timeless film, but I have to give it a look again to see if the critics are right about this or not.
I was almost always true to you.
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."
Hawaii (circa 1961) and ol'swivel hips is our personal tour guide. Angela Lansbury plays comic relief as his overmomming Southern mommie and Floyd the barber's in there, too, for comic backup lest attention starts to wander. This is strictly for fans of the Pelvis though. Hawaii looks good too. Rock-A-Hula, baby!
First off, this movie has it all- Elvis in an army uniform, Elvis with a lei, Elvis kissing every woman, Elvis swinging his hips, Elvis singing Elvis songs, Elvis singing Hawaiian songs, Elvis in a white suit, Elvis with an orange fake tan, Elvis shirtless, Elvis making non stop innuendo, Elvis surfing, Elvis with a dog, Elvis being a good guy, Elvis brawling, Elvis in jail, Elvis on a horse... Unfortunately, what it doesn't have is a plot or any emotion. The music also tapers off into blandness by the end. Way to kill good-actor Elvis, world.
Great scenery, very nice music, and an energetic/fun Elvis enjoying the role and doing quite well at it. This role combined with his two previous dramas show how much promise he had as a true Hollywood actor....a shame that it never progressed.
Bad accents and incredibly short pants -- Elvis is back in Hawaii. Campy fun.
