Fun but feels constrained, like someone tried to make the most inoffensively dark movie possible. On paper Elvis' character should be a real scumbag but Elvis can't pull it off so while he definitely comes off as an ass it seems more borne out of stupid decisions than the character's personality, even when scenes very clearly contradict the portrayal. It also has a really terrible redemption arc. Still fun despite the flaws, though.

Elvis turns into a douche, makes some forgettable music, makes it big in the industry and gets punched in the trachea. I guess describing it like that makes this sound like a pretty decent movie, maybe that's how they pitched it, but it sure ain't how they wrote it.

Turns out all I ever needed in my life was Elvis beating the shit out of some cops.

Jailhouse Rock has only a fraction of the zing that an early Elvis vehicle should reasonably proffer. It's a fairly dull rags-to-riches story and little more, but one with a lead character so unsympathetic that his ultimate success and happiness leaves a decidedly sour taste. Worse still, with the exception of the iconic title number, not one of the songs is at all memorable.
