This later Elvis Presley vehicle finds the King as a rich oil-baron willing to trade places with a water-ski instructor just to see whether he can succeed in love without the added attractions of wealth and glamour.

Critic Reviews for Clambake

All Critics (3)

Clambake in story, dialog and songs is derivative; a stringing together of cliches that must have been cut out and pasted together from a number of other scripts.

The premise is a fun riff on Mark Twain's The Prince and the Pauper.... but there's enough here to make the formula different and entertaining enough, even for contemporary families.

Clambake is indeed awful, but it's amusing and Presley's star power is hard to refute.

Audience Reviews for Clambake

Another okay Elvis movie, much like his other movies. I recently re-watched this one because I'm a fan of Bixby, who has a part in this one. It's actually pretty funny for the most part, but it's also silly and stupid and full of Elvis songs. Overall, it's okay.
