not sure if this term is used worldwide, but in the USA, “rubbernecking” describes the act of gawking at something of interest. It is often used to refer to drivers trying to view the carnage resulting from a traffic accident. The term specifically refers to the craning of a person’s neck in order to get a better view.

    I’m not an Elvis fan by any means, but he made one movie that I really like and own. Its called “Change of Habit” and it has the song “Rubbernecking” in it. Seriously! The movie is about nuns who go to the inner city to help a doctor (Elvis). Mary Tyler Moore is the main nun who falls in love with Elvis. You should check it out!!

  • Elvis as a doctor? WOW, thats a real stretch. I love MTM. I will check it out.

    LOL. Rubbernecking is correct especially for traffic accidents. Cool image.

  • exactly – personally, I have no desire to see accident carnage. Years ago I made the mistake of rubbernecking and I saw a motorcycle accident I will never forget. A decapitated head. That was the last time I strained to see a traffic accident. :))

    This Elvis movie is totally different from the rest of his movies. If you lived closer, I’d loan it to you. :))))
