By 1961, Elvis Presley the dangerous rock-and-roll rebel had become a comfortable and reassuring screen presence. He may not have been exactly mainstream, but his screen persona was definitely one that parents could feel comfortable exposing impressionable youngsters to. Fortunately, Presley still maintained a definite presence and charisma, if little real acting ability, for without his easy charm, Follow That Dream would be pretty rough going. As it is, the film is not for those with a weak stomach where cutesy children, homespun humor and cornfed, simple "real folks" characters are concerned. It's also not for those who like real drama and sparkling dialogue, but the screenplay is at least carefully constructed and has an internal logical consistency. Presley is in fine voice, although the so-so songs crafted for the film don't really tax his vocal abilities. They're also indifferently staged and fairly extraneous, making this a musical in which the songs really don't matter much. As a matter of fact, nothing much matters here except Presley, whose laidback niceness makes Dream pleasant and comfy, if unremarkable and unmemorable. Craig Butler, All Movie Guide
