Critical response

Billboard reviewed the single in its May 6, 1967 issue. The magazine predicted "Long Legged Girl (With the Short Dress On)" to reach the top 60 of the Hot 100 chart and characterized it as "a strong rhythm entry with traces of his earlier hit sounds" such as "Blue Suede Shoes".[2]

The 2014 book The Elvis Movies called "Long Legged Girl (With the Short Dress On)" "probably the best song in the movie" Double Trouble.[4]

The 2013 book Elvis Music FAQ concluded: "Long Legged Girl (With the Short Dress On)" is tolerable faux hard rock. "The guitar is dirty, but the lick is humdrum, and Elvis sounds detached. It wasn't a good single choice, but it has a pulpy cheese thing going."
