Elvis is alive and well and living in Albequerque ..............
28 September 2010 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Pretty original idea about a 70 year old Elvis hiding out in New Mexico, and the murder of a tabloid reporter who uncovers the story. Robert Patrick with at least a bunch of makeup is strikingly accurate as the geriatric Elvis. Jay Mohr is lively and likable as the private investigator patsy, and Joe Mantegna is appropriate as a sleazy record promoter. Throw in some very funny dialog, along with a lot of silliness, and you pretty much have "Lonely Street". My only criticism would be the title, which seems more attached to an old Andy Williams record than Elvis, and too many stale fart jokes. With the right audience, cult status is a definite possibility. - MERK
