KING RALPH (1991) 7MATE, 7.30PM, PG,

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

There’s a mix of com­edy and ro­mance in this show­case for big John Good­man, with sup­port from Peter O’Toole. When all the mem­bers of Bri­tain’s royal fam­ily are wiped out, the only per­son who can be found to be suc­ces­sor to the throne is a pi­ano-play­ing Amer­i­can lounge en­ter­tainer from Las Ve­gas (Good­man). O’Toole brings his cus­tom­ary style to the role of Wing­ham, the ad­viser who helps King Ralph ad­just to life in Buck­ing­ham Palace. The vil­lain try­ing to get rid of Ralph and send him back to Ve­gas is played by John Hurt. ★★✩
