Movie Info

All musically gifted race-driver Lucky Jackson (Elvis Presley) wants in Las Vegas is to score enough money for a new car motor so he can win the Grand Prix. When he encounters sexy swimming instructor Rusty (Ann-Margret), he considers staying around longer. After Lucky loses his winnings in the hotel pool, he's forced to remain in Vegas long enough to win back his dough -- but now he also wants to win the Rusty's heart. Unfortunately, so does his slick racing enemy, Elmo (Cesare Danova).

Audience Reviews for Viva Las Vegas

  • Nov 04, 2011
    This movie is worth seeing for the megawatt charisma of Elvis and Ann Margaret and the sparklingly entertaining musical numbers. It's not just the charisma of these two, but their chemistry, by far the best chemistry Elvis had with any co star in all of his mostly forgettable films. They exude, sex, confidence and talent.As almot any review of any Elvis film will say, the story and writing are perfunctory and cliched, and it doesn't even make great use of its Vegas locations. Pop culture geeks will enjoy the only other performance worth metioning, that of William Demarest, Uncle Charlie from My Three Sons as Ann Margaret's crusty papa. As for Anne Margaret, it's a shame the only three films that she is rememberd for are Bye Bye Birdie, Tommy, and this one. She is sexy, luminous, and shows a natural acting ability that she didn't get much chance to explore or reveal. She did not have the career she richly desevered on film.Carnal Knowlege is the only serious film for which she is got a chance to show those talents.. That said, anyone of a younger generation who wishes to see why Elvis was ELVIS, need look no further than this film. It's everything that made him the King in a nutshell You can't take your eyes off him, he has total audience empathy despite his impossible looks and talents. The King (and Anne Margaret) transcend the formulaic banaltiy of this film. Well worth a rental.

    This is one of the most popular Elvis movies, it's played on TV the most too, so if you're a fan don't miss it, it's one of his best.

    Fairly fun little movie starring Elvis Presley and Ann-Margret. Felt a bit silly and predictable at times but Presley and Ann-Margret really do work well together. Would of given this a three but I'll give an extra half star for the catchy "My Rival" song by Ann-Margret "My rival is baby blue racing car!"
