Once more, and once again, when our boy’s latest gig goes up in smoke due to some rowdies, luck is with him as his latest dust-up lands him a job at an all-girl dude ranch / fat farm. But just when you think the plot is locked in, Tickle Me takes a sudden and drastic 180-degree turn from sagebrush slapstick to haunted house spook-show treasure hunt, where the whole thing comes off as an unused Three Stooges script. Well, turns out there’s a reason for that.
 

This post was part of Da’King Lives, which originated back in January of 2010, to help celebrate the King of Rock-n-Roll’s 75th birthday and throw a spotlight on his fine, fractured forays into feature film.
