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

Eric D. Snider

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

Palo Alto Weekly

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

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

| Original Score: 1.5/4

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

So jammed with silly elements that it makes one weary.

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

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

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

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

Kansas City Star

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

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

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

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