Thinly "plotted" Elvis Presley comedy with Shelley Fabares, who reportedly was Elvis' favorite of all his leading gals. Elvis is the front man in a vintage '60s pop group who leaves the snowy city of Chicago along with his band mates for a spring break down in the warm and bikini-busy Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. He manages to secure the trip by telling his mobster employer that he'll be sure to keep an eye on his boss' college-aged daughter (Fabares, who's cuter in SPINOUT) while she's also vacationing down there with her girlfriends. Typically zany mishaps ensue, but along the way there are some enjoyable songs... "Girl Happy," which is the best of the bunch, "Do Not Disturb," "Puppet on a String", "Ft. Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce", and the latest beach blanket rage, "Do the Clam"! Presley still seems to be pretty game. **1/2 out of ****
