Critic Reviews for Fun in Acapulco

All Critics (7)

The good news is that it's no worse than Elvis' usual underachieving musicals and the songs he sings though not great are at least bearable.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It's an Elvis movie: formula songs and acting.

A pleasant diversion full of sun, music and beautiful girls.

Audience Reviews for Fun in Acapulco

The plot developments in this movie are absolutely hilarious. Actually this could have been better had they just hired better actors.. Elvis is easily the best one. Between the bad acting and the child-manager and a buncha dopey songs, it unfortunately isn't terribly memorable. But Elvis looks amazing in bull fighter outfits, of course.

★★ (out of four) Well...I am at least glad that Elvis is having fun in Acapulco because I didn't. For all of Elvis' great musical qualities, he sure wasn't much of an actor. That's okay, though, since he still had a few movies that were entertaining and watchable. This one, however, just didn't do it for me. This time Elvis stars as Mike Wingren, a former trapese artist. He accidently dropped his partner years ago and now he suffers from vertigo. Now, he works at a posh resort in Acapulco. There the sexy social director (Ursula Andress) helps him get over his phobia in order to be in a huge production. Hokey, but will please fans of Elvis' movies. [IMG][/IMG]

Pleasant Elvis vehicle with good, if unmemorable songs, beautiful locations, quite a bit of beefcake including Elvis himself looking extremely fit and a ravishing Ursula Andress.
