What if Elvis Presley's twin brother hadn't died at birth, but instead got adopted in infancy by an evangelical preacher, grew up to be a mechanic, and harbored a desire to perform his brother's songs? That's the premise of this would-be inspirational rock musical, which feels like one of the biopic parodies from Mr. Show (e.g., "Why Me? The Bob Lamonta Story") played completely straight. The Elvis stand-in is named "Drexel Hemsley," most of the songs that are supposed to have been written in the 60s sound like contemporary soft rock, and Ray Liotta, as the preacher, delivers a sermon about the Six-Day War that comes out of nowhere. With Ashley Judd and Seth Green; Dustin Marcellino directed a script by Howard Klausner.
