2.0 out of 5 stars Off the Formula But Still Disappointing May 31 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The Rebel-With-A-Heart-of-Gold-Who-Learns-The-Meaning-Of-Love scenario is put aside for a kind of soft spoof of spy pictures, which were very popular in the movies and on TV at that time. The "European" setting got Elvis off the beach and away from the resorts but the script and direction were basic, to say the least, and the music was uninspired and badly mixed on record. The movie does have one of Presley's best set of opening productiom numbers: "Long Legged Girl.." and others are rousing tunes delivered with that Presley panache often missing from his late-'60s efforts. But about 20 minutes into the picture even the most ardent fan reaches for a magazine. An interesting sidelight is that his co-star was a true "discovery" - an English teenager making her screen debut with Elvis Presley! She handles the light-hearted assignment very well indeed - even the "Old MacDonald" sequence which usually is reprised on documentaries as a typically ludicrous excuse for a soundtrack album cut.

3.0 out of 5 stars My First Elvis Movie March 17 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This was the first Elvis movie I ever saw. It's definitely not the way to start out watching Elvis' movies, but it is an honest effort. You have to give it credit for having a different setting (in Europe) and for having a different type of plot than other Elvis movies.It has a basically good soundtrack,"Baby,If You'll Give Me All Your Love","City By Night","Long-legged Girl","There's So Much World To See","Could I Fall In Love","I Love Only One Girl",and "Double Trouble" are all good, with the exception of "Old MacDonald". I wouldn't say it was a "horrid rendition", but just the fact that this song is sung, period, makes it beyond ridiculous. I like, however, the fairly engaging plot, kind of a spy-spoof at times. John Williams, Annette Day,and Leon Askin stand out among the cast. Not highly recommended, but recommended nonetheless.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth the trouble Aug. 26 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Set in 'Swinging London', and fashionable European locales, (courtesy of the Hollywood back-lot) this film must surely have convinced even the die-hard fan that Elvis was well and truly performing in a parallel universe. The laughable attempt to give it a more "mod" look was embarrassing given the trite songs ("I Love Only One Girl" and "Old MacDonald") and cornball premise.
Elvis seemed to be trying to inject some sense of balance into the film by not taking it too seriously, and for this reason alone the film is not a complete failure. But, given the fact that this is the same Elvis Presley who shone in "Flaming Star", "Viva Las Vegas", and "King Creole", and who turned the world on its musical, and social, ear ten years earlier, maybe it was just pure boredom or embarrassment that infused his performance.

4.0 out of 5 stars I am the only one? Nov. 21 2001
Format:VHS Tape
I feel as if I'm the only that a good time with this Elvis Presley film. If you want to see a worst Elvis Presley film, then check out Harum Scarum. There are nine songs in this film not 2. And I own both films. I own this and Harum Scarum. But Elvis Presley didn't have a choice, his manger/agent decided that instead of performing concerts. I like this better than Harum Scraum and worth giving this above 3 stars. But I would have given this 5 stars if they would have gotten somebody who had more than one or 2 film playing Elvis Presley's love in the film. As the movie opens, when Guy Lambert (Elvis Presley) heads off to Europe, little does he know that his tour will include stops aong the way with spies, counterspies, jewel thives, and two lovely foreign feemes, (newcomer Annette Day and Yvonne Romain). If you don't like this, then move out of the United States.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly above average Elvis vehicle June 12 2000
Format:VHS Tape
While certainly not as good as any of his 50s pictures (or even BLUE HAWAII), DOUBLE TROUBLE is certainly more watchable than TICKLE ME or HARUM SCARUM.
The plot is typical: Elvis falls for two women (that's certainly been done before), and gets into some sort of conflict. This time it's trying to save his girlfriend from her Uncle Gerald, who is after her inheritance.
OK, the plot isn't much, but Elvis looks good in some of the outfits he wears in this picture. The songs are not much either, especially the horrid rendition of "Old MacDonald". The best songs are "Long Legged Girl" and "City By Night".
At least this is a picture in which I didn't cringe. The dialogue isn't quite as corny as some of the other pictures, and it doesn't get too boring either.
A marginal "thumbs up" from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elvis and spies? Typical, but enjoyable. Nov. 12 2002
By Josh P.
Format:VHS Tape
"Double Trouble" took advantage of the spy themes in the '60s. Elvis does his martial art moves in this picture. Unfortunately, his fighting opponent falls down a boarded-up well and...well, enough said. Annette Day tries to put her move on Elvis. He's a little resistent at first, but eventually gives in. A lot of action, a lot of comedy, and a lot of music is what is made up of "Double Trouble". Whoever said that they were the only one enjoying this picture was wrong. You're not alone. I am a true and huge Elvis fan. I love all of his movies, no matter what they stuck him in. "Double Trouble" is double fun.
