Critic Reviews for Frankie and Johnny

All Critics (3)

If it seems plot-starved (and it does), that's because it's basically an expansion of the popular story song....

Sometimes Elvis Presley's movies are campy fun, but sometimes, as with Frankie and Johnny, they are lazy and dire, barely even able to muster anything ridiculous, let alone anything good.

Audience Reviews for Frankie and Johnny

Typical Elvis with Elly Mae Clampett yet, which actually adds to its kitsch value and makes it one you really have to see ONCE.
