When the British royal family (yes, every one of them!) is wiped out in a tragic photography accident, the hunt is on for an heir to the throne. Unfortunately for Britain, when one is found it turns out to be Ralph Jones (played by John Goodman), an American lounge singer from far over the wrong side of the tracks. As Lord Percival Graves (John Hurt) schemes to dethrone Ralph I, Fredrick Willingham (Peter O'Toole) works feverishly to keep Jones' feet on the straight and narrow. [Color, created in 1991, with a running time of 1 hour, 36 minutes.]
As you can tell from the summary above, this is not a movie to be taken seriously! It is outrageously funny, being both outrageous and funny. The downside is that there is one scene where Ralph goes to a strip club, and several women are seen in less than family-oriented clothing (there's a joke in there somewhere). So, if you have young children, like me, then you will need to hit stop, and fast-forward past the offending scene, as it is too long to simply cue through.
That said, though, for adult viewing, this is a great movie! It has a wonderful, heart-warming message, and is funny without much swearing or any violence. I highly recommend this movie.
