Too goofy to take seriously and too heavy-handed to dismiss as a so-bad-it-is-good guilty pleasure.

Is it an Elvis movie or a Jesus movie (or a dessert topping or a floor wax)?
August 14, 2018
There's nothing that stands out about this film besides the music, which is fun and enjoyable, and sadly not enough of it.

The Identical's biggest problem ... is that it substitutes clichd conflict between corny stock characters like a money-grubbing talent agent and a rooted-in-his-ways minister for real narrative development.

The Identical is a surreal kick to the head, a well-intended ham fest of unintentional comedy that the "Sharknado" guys only wish they could make.

This is [Dustin] Marcellino's first feature and it feels like a nervous first attempt at bringing a production together.

While it's not a dull time, working within a fictional construct it lacks the depth to really make this come alive.

This is a terrific premise for a movie. Too bad they do so little with it.

Heartfelt Story & Loved the Music

Fans of bad movies, please note: This is a must-see. This is so bad it must be seen to be believed - 'Showgirls' bad, a vision that slowly goes wrong, then terribly wrong, then hits disaster levels. In a sense, it's an Ed Wood-ian exercise in wrong.

Did you know that Elvis had an identical twin brother named Schmelvis?
September 9, 2014
A "what if" about Elvis' twin provides good entertainment for those seeking family fun and for die hard Elvis fans.

It's a mysterious, hilarious mess, a confusional cry for directions in a Triple Elvis Universe. Buy your ticket now, before it magically disappears from theaters, and feel the brain-breaking power of song.
September 7, 2014
Even with all the faith injected into this film like a wino mainlining heroin, there's no real message, no real conclusion, and no real resolution.
September 7, 2014
To paraphrase a Presley classic: Wise men say, only fools rush in to see a one-trick pony revolving around an annoying Elvis look-a-like.
September 5, 2014
A hollow inspirational Christian-themed jukebox musical that is flat out absurd.
September 5, 2014
... a bizarre musical drama that laughably tries to pass itself off as an inspirational, faith-based tale of wish fulfillment.
September 5, 2014
Musical melodrama lacks charisma but is fine for tweens.
September 5, 2014
Long a subject of fascination for certain Elvis fans and scholars of American popular culture, the connection between the King of Rock and Roll and the King of Kings finds its most elaborate expression yet in 'The Identical.'

Rock fantasies are rarely this milquetoast.
