Movie Info

Sometimes a family title, among the nobility of England, goes to the "collateral" heirs -- people not in the direct line of decent, like cousins, great-nephews and the like. On rare occasions, these people are not even aware that they are about to be elevated to the House of Lords, and they have been living more-or-less ordinary lives. In this comedy, the family which lacks direct heirs is the Royal Family of England -- as all of the likely heirs have died one after the other in swift

Interesting premise of Goodman becoming King works as fairly funny comedy.

Unfortunately it's not a movie about Green Party candidate Nader -- just a barely passable "funny fat guy" flick

Audience Reviews for King Ralph

[img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon13.gif[/img]

In his first ever starring role, John Goodman really gives it his all and delivers a charming performance as the titiluar character that is the -should be hilarious- Ralph. The film surrounding Goodman isn't as energetic. There are very few laughs in the second half of King Ralph because it focuses more on the plot which in it's execution, should have been a lot funnier than it was. The whole idea of the film was designed primarily for John Goodman to do what he does best and wisecrack, do fat jokes and be lovable but their's very little of that as opposed to his role's in Dirty Deeds and The Big Lebowski. I laughed a few times but it doesn't make full use of the comedic cast it has on board. At best it's barely passable but also mildly amusing.
