Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Craig Butler
Only Elvis Presley diehards should bother with Tickle Me, one of many disposable films that were inflicted upon "the King." The only things that really "distinguish" Tickle are its dude ranch/spa and ghost town settings and the "haunted house" type of comedy that the latter inspires. Actually, "inspires" is definitely not the right word, for the comical shenanigans that take place are tired and at times down right annoying. Otherwise, Tickle has the usual plethora of eye candy girls and drop-in-at-random songs. It should be noted, however, that Jocelyn Lane, as the primary love interest, is arguably the most stunning of all the beautiful ladies that Elvis romanced on film, although her acting is at best passable. And it doesn't hurt that the gorgeous Julie Adams is also on hand as the "older" woman. The choice of songs often makes a huge difference in whether an Elvis flick clicks or not, and Tickle could have done better in this regard. None of them are bad, but there aren't any that really set the screen on fire either. Production values are minimal, and occasionally downright shoddy. Still, Elvis goes through it all with his usual charm, and those who desire nothing more will find Tickle an acceptable way to pass a little time.
