We always talk about the films that you can take your kids to and still enjoy yourself. A Royal Night Out is the film you can take your parents to and still have a whale of a time.

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.
