How distressing that my favorite Elvis movie has been edited by MGM leaving out "I'm Just a Smokey Mountain Boy". It cuts down on the opening sure, but it's a song that sets the atmosphere for the rest of the film. It's a totally bizarre and unnecessary omission from the film. It's somewhat akin to omitting "Over the Rainbow" from 'Wizard of Oz'. The whole film is fun...Tommy Farrell is superb as is his mom in the film. In fact, every actor turns in a great performance. Elvis is totally believable as Josh and as Jody. He never turned a finer performance in a comedy role. The 5 star rating is for the movie...I'd give MGM a '0' for their editing.

I enjoy this movie every time I watch it. I have been viewing it since it first came out many years ago. It's one of those movies that the whole family can watch and enjoy.
Today you can be an idiot and become a movie star. You don't have to do much but use four letter words at the right time. Those people that aren't very bright or don't have a very good hold on the language can be a movie star. The era that this movie of Kissin Cousins was made there were many Academy Award movies that did not use vulger language in them. It seems stupidity reigns supreme today. Thanks.

This movie is an Elvis Presley hillbilly versus military nonsense musical comedy, so it's just great fun to relax and watch.

I especially liked one of the songs that he sings, "TENDER FEELING", so I learned to sing it, recorded it, and posted my homemade amateur video recording at the YOU TUBE web site, and on my own personal web site, "OUR ETERNAL STRUGGLE".

There's also a particularly amusing episode with the family hound accompanying the matriarch as she wails her lament.

I am a middle aged woman that enjoys movies that are funny but not tasteless. This is a movie I would let any young person watch and not worry about it spoiling their minds. It was quite enjoyable for me.
Thank you

Was a great movie to watch. Seeing Elvis as a blonde was very interesting as well. I really enjoyed the film and found myself being interested in how they had got him to play 2 people at the same time since they wouldn't have had the things to do it digitally in the days when Elvis was making films. The film was worth the buy and added to my already big collection of Elvis movies, I was really happy with the film.

For fans, this is a romp with Elvis playing a dual role. Unfortunately, the storyline itself is corny and the girls scantily clad simply for effect. Thus, the "low" rating. Nevertheless, it is a must have for collectors of the Kings films.

Released in 1964, “Kissin’ Cousins” stars Elvis Presley as an army lieutenant who’s assigned to the Smokey Mountains to talk a family of hilljacks into allowing the Army to build a missile site on their mountain. Yvonne Craig plays one of the daughters of the owner of the private mountain.

This is a typical Elvis musical/comedy highlighted by Craig and a few peripheral beauties. It’s obviously not shot in the east, but rather the wilds of California, which was typical (e.g. 1962’s “Kid Galahad”). What’s notable about this movie is that Presley plays a dual role, the officer Josh Morgan and the light-haired hillrod Jodie Tatum. “Kissin’ Cousins” is essentially the early 60’s precursor to 1993’s “The Beverly Hillbillies.” It’s actually better, believe it or not.

The movie runs 96 minutes and was shot at Big Bear Valley, San Bernardino National Forest, California.
