Great movie, There was a little more to Elvis in this movie than just singing.

Light entertainment; probably one of the better "formula" Elvis films, but still lacking as a movie.

Seeing Elvis on a bike is awesome. I wish he was around longer; I would have liked to see what else was he capable of doing.

As a fan of carnivals and a carnival historian, this movie ranks high in my view. I just wish there was a way to find out who really owned the carnival and why the tilt a whirl was not set up, though you see the tilt truck in the background of one of the shots.

The sweet spirit with which "Roustabout" imbued the world is credit to Elvis, 1st and foremost, and also to those artisans (and businessmen!) whom his God-given charisma attracted. We, the fans and viewing public, were and are the beneficiaries of Elvis Presley's warmth, passion, and true class.

Very, very good. Elvis was great in this movie. I still like to hear the musics of the film; it reminds me of when I was 16 years old. Thanks to Elvis for all this good time.

I love the film, love the Honda, and love that time in the mid 1960's, and I love Elvis. Anyone recall in which film Elvis rode the White Honda 305 Dream? My heart is in the 1960's.

The movie roustabout is great! It is my favorite movie. Elvis sings a lot of good songs in that movie - 11 songs. But what is not so good is that the song "I'm a roustabout" has been cut out of the movie. If it would be in the movie, the movie would be a little bit better. But still the movie is great! I love Elvis forever! :-)

YES, YES, YES, this movie was so cool and I loved it soo much. Elvis Presley will always be famous and around.

Great "diamond in the rough" movie.  It's nice to know that there are other fans of Roustabout out there.  Lets hear it for the ultra obscure eclectics of the world!
