Fun In Acapulco

I have always been a big fan of Elvis' movie Fun In Acapulco. It is not one of his better films as far as script or his performance, but it for some reason has always been at the top of my favorites list. This is the first movie and soundtrack of the early 60's I would just consider alright. Though some of the music in my opinion is very fun and enjoyable even if someone that had as much talent as Elvis should have not been singing it. One of my favorite songs from the movie is I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here. Below is a alternate take. It defiantly is a little different then the one released as anyone who has heard this song as much as I have can tell. I still like the original release a little better. Though this version is pretty cool as well. Watch this cool video and listen to this song as you see some cool pictures from the movie as well.

Great video. I've never seen this movie of his, but I've had it on my list of Elvis movies to see.

It is a pretty fun movie with some hot ladies. Definitely worth viewing in my opinion.

The hot ladies would have sold me on the movie alone. :-) Seriously though, it's nice to find a movie that's such pure escapist fun.

I would suggest Blue Hawaii to you as well. Very fun and relaxing movie. One of my top 5 favorite movies. Actually on of Elvis' better movies and has some good music as well.
