It's a nice study of a young girl's happy obsession.

Gordon's nifty scenario juggles various aspects -- ordinary brink-of-adolescence growing pains, multicultural-tolerance lessons, suspense gambits -- with entertaining skill.

Her Majesty has all the makings of a perfectly charming family picture, and then the plot runs off the rails.

Plots points and themes of imperialism and racism are hit on the nose repeatedly, until the audience takes a beating.

So jammed with silly elements that it makes one weary.

An outstanding family film about a teenage girl in New Zealand whose openness to others and yearning for justice is inspirational.

The story's conflicts come unexpectedly, and they are the reasons the film is as instructive as it is entertaining.

An enjoyable family viewing experience.

Its amateurish elements often betray the relatively low budget, and there's also a serious lack of energy.

Her Majesty has worse problems than a lack of realism, namely mediocre direction and acting that's at the level of bad community theatre.

doesn't wallow in saccharine. It tells a tough story without apologies, and in the end charms the most hard-hearted . . . with its sense of joy and of justice

An excess of tired elements lend the narrative the trite sensation of an ABC After-School Special.

Thinly drawn characters and ridiculous plot twists, not to mention being a rather sleepy, unengaging film anyway. But hey, no naughty stuff!

The movie has good intentions, but not much artistic merit behind them.

The interactions between Elizabeth and Hira Mata have a nice natural warmth.

This magical story follows a 13 year old girl in New Zealand who dreams that Queen Elizabeth will visit her small village of Middleton.

Despite its clunkier moments, Her Majesty generally works because it realizes that kids often understand adult foibles much better than grownups themselves.
