Comic fairy-tale romp has drinking, sexual situations.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that A Royal Night Out is a "what if" movie that takes real historical personalities and imagines them in an improbable story. In this fairy-tale comedy, what if young heir-in-waiting Princess Elizabeth and little sister Margaret had convinced their parents, the king and queen of England, to let them celebrate the end of World War II on the streets of London with all the rest of its rowdy, rejoicing citizens? Their astonishing adventure finds the two teens, unrecognized in the crowds, in what might be some dangerous situations if it weren't all in fun. They meet up with gangsters, prostitutes, and an AWOL soldier. They get lost in swarming crowds, run from the military police, and, in one instance, almost become victim to a sexual predator. Drunkenness, including underage drinking, is the backdrop in scene after scene of the revelry. That, and a bit of profanity ("ass," "whore"), some near nudity (a flash of breast), and comic sexual situations makes this otherwise innocent film best for teens and up.
