Critic Reviews for Change of Habit
Atrociously conceived, but strangely very watchable.
Maybe the studio brass thought it would be hit; viewed now, it looks like a desperate reach, a blind attempt to do anything to connect with the audience.
Audience Reviews for Change of Habit
What a waste of talent. I just can't help but be shocked at how insincere this movie was; especially in 1969, a year full of sincere and brutally honest cinema- Easy Rider, Midnight Cowboy, They Shoot Horses Don't They?, Z and Kes to name a few. Instead, we get a tepid film about three women who have actively disengaged from the society they're now trying to reenter undercover and somehow fix. I know this is my cynicism talking but the last thing anybody wanted to hear in '69 was a sermon about we should try harder to be better within the confines of whims forced upon us by a group of people who sit in ivory towers. That is the literal antithesis of the year 1969. The movie tries to be optimistic but it fails because we're just past this sort of bandaid patches over the gaping maw of social wounds. That said, Elvis looks gorgeous in this movie and with Mary Tyler Moore they have taken over the world. Too bad the movie falls flat.
Surprisingly well done movie. Elvis plays a doctor in the inner city very believably and the supporting cast all mixes well together. An Elvis movie that is inspiring? You bet. Go back in time to 1969 and feel the optimism that spread to a well established rocker and mainstream actress. Solid film that'll make you smile.
This movie is slightly more interesting than Elvis' usual movies, and it really helps to have a great actress like Mary Tyler Moore in the film too, but it's still not a fantastic movie. If you're an Elvis or Moore fan you'll like it, though.
