Very funny and the music is great
9 September 2004 | by GELATOMANSee all my reviews

I've recently seen ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING. I was a guest at a private screening.

Kim Basinger plays a very good part and John Corbett is suave and cool. The movie is very entertaining and combined with the original ELVIS tracks adds a great balance. Pat Morita makes a cameo appearance and Sean Austin and Denise Richards add to an already impressive cast. Joel Zwick the director does a great job and we see him play the 'squashed elvis'. I was also surprised to see TOM HANKS play the 'mailbox elvis'.

BMG have the soundtrack for worldwide distribution and includes 8 Elvis original masters plus 4 cover songs: Norah Jones singing "LOVE ME TENDER, famous d.j. Paul Oakenfold remix of I GOT STUNG (his last remix was A LITTLE LESS CONVERSATION). Melissa Etheridge singing HARD HEADED WOMAN and Baby Face singing the ballad of IT'S NOW OR NEVER.

Elvis lives, see the movie its good fun.
