The Title Says It All, May 28 2004
This is a really fun movie that has lots of Bubba and not a little Ho-Tep. I found it very campy and some of it was surprisingly creepy. The scene where Elvis (Bruce Campbell) battles a giant scarab with a bedpan was a hoot.
I loved the premise that Elvis was just tired of all the hoorah in his life and wanted out, temporarily anyway. But things don't always go as we plan in life and Campbell is very good at portraying Elvis' bemusement with where he ends up - in a ramshackle nursing home in Texas.
Ossie Davis as JFK is just wonderful. His room at the nursing home looks as much like the Oval Office as possible, considering the circumstances.
This is a popcorn movie well worth seeing.
