Bubba Ho-Tep Review
Written by: Moviemaven
What would happen if Elvis and JFK joined forces to wipe out a cowboy hat wearing mummy that sucks the souls from old people's butts in an East Texas retirement home? Let's go to Mud Creek and find out. Here we have an aged Elvis Presley that claims he traded lives with an impersonator named Sebastian Haff over twenty years before but broke his hip and ended up at Shady Rest. We also have JFK that has been dyed black and has had his brain replaced with a bag of sand by the government.
Within Shady Rest, the walls are dripping with grime, the nurse is a smartass and the oldsters are dropping like flies. Nothing wrong with that picture, right? Well, Elvis and JFK think there is because they have seen the Roy Rogers of mummies attack sleeping seniors and suck the life right out of them. JFK decodes some strange heiroglypghics from the rest room wall to mean: 'Pharoah gobbles donkey goobers. Cleopatra does the nasty.' Apparently mummies wax poetic when they are 'crapping soul residue.'
From this moment on they decide they must take out the mummy themselves. It all comes to a grand climax with Elvis brandishing a walker in his trademark jumpsuit and JFK riding shotgun in a wheelchair. Will I tell you how it ends? 'Sorry, man.' But I will say that Elvis proves he is much more than an 'old guy in a rest home with growth on his pecker.'
