Product Description:

As the manager of a traveling Chautauqua troupe, Elvis has his hands full when the show is disrupted by the murder of a local sleazeball. He also juggles the demands of his union-minded (but lovely) piano accompanist.

Plot Synopsis:

Elvis Presley stars in this eclectic blend of whodunit, melodrama, comedy and Americana.
Walter Hale is the manager of a "Chautauqua" -- a traveling educational/motivational show -- whose tour takes him and his company to a small town in the Midwest circa 1927.
Aside from the friction between Walter's crew and the locals, one of the residents, a jealous pharmacist, is found murdered. While the traveling performers decide the show must go on, and the residents debate whether to support or reject it, Walter realizes the onus is on him to solve the mystery.

Rating 0.5 The Trouble With Lousy Elvis Movies Movie Lover: from GRANADA HILLS, CA US -- June, 26, 2013

I suppose I should get to the point - "The Trouble With Girls" is one of the worst movies which I've ever TRIED to watch. I started watching, and couldn't finish - I had to turn it off, midway. In particular, considering a ratio of the talented people involved in this film, (and that Elvis & his people had the resources to hire just about anyone), and the awful results, as far as I'm concerned, it is a huge disappointment and probably the WORST film released. In the music business (in which Elvis played a big part), every so often a reviewer will state that when so-and-so recorded an album, they put so little effort into what they did that they "phoned in their performance." In a real, figurative and virtual manner, this is what the actors - including Elvis - did: a languid and emotionless performance that never really gets into first gear, let alone second. The music is bad - mediocre at best. Elvis proved quite a few times that his films could have at least some interesting, entertaining and enjoyable moments, but these are absent here. Yes, I know that Col.Parker knew that all you had to do is release yet another film with his boy, and the rapacious (rabid?) fans would flock to see it. But we deserved more! (Well, you asked for my opinion!)
