Most of the way, it's a cheerful homespun comedy with easygoing songs and funny lines; so it can be forgiven for slowing to a near-standstill at the finish.

Better than average Elvis vehicle.

more entertaining than any Ben Affleck-J-Lo material that Hollywood has produced during the last few years

Audience Reviews for Follow that Dream

This Elvis movie is more on the dramatic side, but it's not one of the best, it's not that bad either, it's just okay.

As Elvis movies go this lands squarely in the middle. Not a really good film like King Creole but hardly a piece of junk like Spinout or Harum Scarum. A pleasant somewhat nonsensical family entertainment with a strong moral sense, a few nice songs and enjoyable performances.
