Critic Reviews for Wild in the Country
Presley holds nothing back with his untamed performance
Pedestrian Presley vehicle w/forgettable songs, acting.
With its incestuous 'Peyton Place' plot, out-of-wedlock baby and Tennessee Williams hothouse atmosphere, this is Elvis's most adult movie...
A script that looked good on paper but when it came time to produce it, things came apart more than they came together.
"That the picture doesn't yield to convention in the final minutes--where it counts--won me over."

Audience Reviews for Wild in the Country
The most freudian Elvis film. Actually pretty enjoyable as the characters are decently well developed but it lags on too long and runs out of steam. Also the convoluted love triangles and overly obvious freudian attractions get cheesy. Nice weaving in of music though and really takes a lot of the best parts from previous Elvis films and incorporates them well.
It's soap opera but so far above the usual junk Elvis was given to work with with costars, Hope Lange and Tuesday Weld, who can actually act that it seems entirely removed from them. Not his best film, that would be King Creole, but enjoyable.
I'm sorry but I have to say I'm hoping that it was his second cousin in the film cuz otherwise EWW! I get that it was based off a novel, but still, gross. The acting wasn't half bad but the story line wasn't somethign that everyone could get into.
