Trivia

The source novel incorporated a lot of Ashford's mis-spellings, and the film does this also - in the title, and in some of the signs which can be seen in the palace scenes (e.g. 'Prince of Whales'). See more »

Goofs

At the public function Ethel very much wants to go to meet Earls, Lords and Ladies, there is a woman who sings the Australian Kookaburra song. The song was written in 1932. This movie takes place in Victorian England. See more »

Quotes

Lord Bernard Clark: Oh, tell me you love me also, Ethel!

An absurd delight
8 December 2007 | by (northern Indiana) – See all my reviews

I came to this sideways from the original novella, which was an absolute hoot. The film was a wonderful adaptation, pulling dialog directly from little Daisy's masterwork and adding to it in the same flavor. At once absurd and moving, it's the slightly wobbly story of an ordinary man who aspires to a higher station and the pretty girl desperate to hobnob among the nobility herself. They embark together, yet separately, and manage to achieve most of their ambitions, but not quite all they'd hoped. The characters are vivid and portrayed by top talent in Jim Broadbent, Lyndsey Marshal, Hugh Laurie, and Bill Nighy. They're all a bit dim-witted and bombastic, but you really feel for their ineptness. It's Broadbent's show—altho he has to fight off Nighy at times as the drunken, roguish earl. Simultaneously insightful (princes are ordinary people too) and oblivious (Ethel spends an awful lot of time alone with men she barely knows), The Young Visiters is both children's literature for adults and adult literature for children.
