When an accident obliterates the British royal family and most of its branches, a desperate geneological search discovers the next King: Ralph, a sleazy American lounge singer. Can Ralph measure up to the job, even with the help of loyal aristocrat Willingham?Written by
In the establishing shot of Buckingham Palace at the beginning of the film, no Royal Standard is seen flying above the palace, which would signify that the monarch is not in residence. Immediately following the establishing shot, it is shown that the monarch is, indeed, in residence and thus, the Royal Standard should be flying. See more »
This seems to get a panning from film reviewers here, but it actually is a good comedy. The story line is mildly stupid and a replay of the old fish-out-of-water formula, but the British were able to add a fantastic flavour to the film and the comedy is kept in check and doesn't become too outlandishly stupid.
Thumbs up in my view, but it's a little bit date these days. Superb supporting cast and a friendly film: nothing crude and from recollection, no bad language.
Goes to show that it can still be done if you really apply your mind to it!
