Picks and Pans Review: Heartbreak Hotel
To portray Elvis Presley, David (An Officer and a Gentleman) Keith greases his sideburns, dudes up in fancy rhinestone suits, quivers a sexy lower lip and rolls out a drawl that's pure Tennessee honey. Boy, does he look and sound the part. But Keith is all dressed up with no place to go. Writer-director Chris (Adventures in Babysitting) Columbus has concocted a sugar-sweet fantasy plot about a teen from Ohio, the obnoxious Charlie (18 Again!) Schlatter, who kidnaps the King to bring home to his ailing Elvis-fan mom, Tuesday Weld. When they get there, everybody acts real friendly-like. Elvis even fixes a lawn mower. That's the exciting part. Any resemblance between this Elvis and the real one is purely coincidental. (PG-13)
