Where is all this going, you ask? Good question.
September 5, 2014
It's stocked with clichs, but they're arranged in such weird ways that the end result is both predictable and certifiable. If only any of it actually went somewhere.

Connoisseurs of the most wonderfully terrible cinema need to run out and catch this one early and often.
September 5, 2014
The music is so terrible and it is such a focal point of the film that it was difficult to get past it.
September 5, 2014
"The Identical" is ultimately too schematically sentimental, even with Liotta playing against type, to have much of an impact.
September 5, 2014
Trading strictly in visual and narrative cliches, The Identical is so solemn and silly that at times you could swear it was a lampoon.
September 4, 2014
A jukebox musical that takes time revealing its goofy absurdity.
September 4, 2014
"The Identical" occupies a neglected niche as a family-friendly movie that isn't geared just toward kids. But living up to a legend is an uphill battle, and the movie doesn't ever reach those heights.
September 4, 2014
"The Identical" has grand ambitions, but they fall flat amid a muddled message and a strong whiff of righteousness.

Elvis Presley made some bad movies, but let's give the King his due: He never made anything as outright awful as "The Identical."
September 4, 2014
The cast is as scattershot as a moonshiner's raccoon hunt.
September 4, 2014
Elvis may have left the building, but a bland impersonator has made his way onto the big screen in a contrived twins-separated-at-birth movie.
September 4, 2014
The filmmakers use such a straight-laced and schmaltzy approach that "The Identical" might as well be a Hallmark TV movie.
September 4, 2014
The script is so determined to deliver an upbeat message of faith and love, it forgets to be interesting.
September 4, 2014
The music-heavy second half doesn't zip with much pizzazz, and even the film's many dips into song-and-dance fail to keep it moving along with anything resembling style. By its third act, things have flatlined.
September 4, 2014
[The Identical] feels like one of the biopic parodies from Mr. Show played completely straight.
September 4, 2014
Elvis slash fiction that could have been written by a spinster church organist.
September 4, 2014
Viewers will probably find themselves wishing there was a sense of personality on screen to match the eccentric passion that clearly went into putting the project together.
September 4, 2014
It's not very good, but it's certainly a curiosity.
September 3, 2014
A movie so bad that you'll want to watch it with all your friends. There's a very real possibility we'll have midnight screenings of this picture for years to come.
