Critic Reviews for Fun in Acapulco

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

The good news is that it's no worse than Elvis' usual underachieving musicals and the songs he sings though not great are at least bearable.

April 10, 2009 | Rating: C | Full Review…

It's an Elvis movie: formula songs and acting.

October 15, 2004 | Rating: 3/5

A pleasant diversion full of sun, music and beautiful girls.

April 29, 2003 | Rating: 70/100

Average Elvis stuff.

Audience Reviews for Fun in Acapulco


Pleasant Elvis vehicle with good, if unmemorable songs, beautiful locations, quite a bit of beefcake including Elvis himself looking extremely fit and a ravishing Ursula Andress.
