Fun in Acapulco is one of those empty musical travelogues that Elvis was prone to make in the 1960s.

That's funny in and of itself, but once you've watched a bad Elvis movie (which is everything he made outside of the concert films, Viva Las Vegas, and King Creole) it becomes obvious that many of his numbers are in fact derived from the smallest possible character motivation.
Befriended by Raoul (Larry Domasin) — a cute child who wants to be his manager and is somehow connected to everyone in town — Elvis climbs the ladder of success with Raoul's help and is torn between lovely coworker Marguerita (Ursula Andress) and the famous matador Dolores (Elsa Cardenas).
Meanwhile, the King is so frequently shot against a blue screen or on a soundstage that one has to suspect he didn't actually go to Acapulco to make the movie.
