CHANGE OF HABIT is a good movie. It has an interesting plot, most of the characters aren't just paper mache blowing in the wind, and the movie deals with social issues that are still relevant even today. Many people suggest that Mary Tyler Moore is miscast in this film, but I found her believable in her role as a nun. Also, the supporting cast does a good job given their limited screen time.
As is the case in all Elvis' movies, there are tunes. However, unlike the other Elvis' films I have seen, the movie isn't structured around the songs. The songs that you actually see Elvis singing appear more natural than staged and a couple of them are really memorable, e.g. "In the Ghetto".
I haven't seen very many Elvis' films, but out of the ones I have viewed, this is the best. I wish Elvis would have been allowed to make more films like this. He could have ended up being remembered as much for his acting as his singing and that would have really been a change of habit.
The title track is an attempts to cash in on the folk scene in the vein of Dylan's 'Blowin in the Wind'.
Elvis playing a doctor is a genius stroke of scriptwriting as is a romantic involvement with a nun (Mary Tyler Moore) who eventually turns away from the Church to be with Elvis.
This film also has a social conscience and like 'Edge of Reality' has a sixties feel about it.
There is something great about this film, I can't put it into words. Maybe it is so bad that it is good, I am not sure.
I would recommend that anyone see this.
