Conjures a flavorful sense of period from a none-too-exorbitant budget: The crowd scenes, in particular, carry an authentic sense of clamor and chaos.

Gadon is intoxicating as Elizabeth. A star is born.

When it's playing for laughs, 'A Royal Night Out' is harmless good fun. But the film stalls when straying into serious-drama territory.

Genuinely warm-spirited, with three lovable central performances from Gadon, Powley and Reynor.

This cheerful farce often feels scaled down for Sunday-night TV.

A load of Royal Crap!

One of the worse movies I have ever seen! How it made it to production is just a miracle. How the royals haven't sued for misrepresentation is also a miracle. It's one thing to stretch the truth, it's another to make it fantasy. Rubbish!

A Nice Night In

Much like the Royals, there was nothing spectacular about this film, but it was solid throughout.

A right royal laugh

Sad to think the Queen only had one amazing night out in her life - if this is indeed true! But it was a good watch, I enjoyed it!
