Elvis lives! Sort of. According to this weirdo low-budget romp, the King (The Evil Dead's Bruce Campbell) didn't die after all. He simply exchanged identities with an Elvis impersonator and years later wound up old, frail and stuck in a dilapidated Texas nursing home. Fortunately, John F. Kennedy (Ossie Davis) is in the home too, giving Elvis the help he needs to battle an ancient Egyptian mummy that has invaded the house to feed on the elderly residents' souls.
You'd think that things could only get weirder and more outrageous after that revelation, but the movie never really delivers on its insane premise and instead relies too heavily on tired peanut-butter-and-banana-sandwich jokes. It's as if the filmmakers knew they're only making a B-movie anyway, so they didn't bother reaching for something more inventive. And because of that, Bubba is as disappointing as the stale routines of most Elvis impersonators.
