Great escapist fun, 23 January 2008
I caught this, a couple of nights ago, and I thought it was great fun.
It is kitsch, fluffy and seemingly unrealistic: just what you need
after a hard day. There is the young King, who is basically a nice guy
trying to do the right thing (but is a duck out of water really). There
is the party hard brother, who is a scream; the pantomine villain older
sister, who is determined to usurp little bro; and the gin swilling
mother. That's just the family, the staff are even more bonkers, from
the maids, to the king's assistant, who is supposedly colluding with a
journalist to write a 'tell all book'; but you can tell she is
developing one hell of a soft spot for HM. This is just good fluffy
fun: you can see where the plot is going, but I didn't care because it
was perfect glitzy escapism.
