Her Majesty, Mrs. Brown (1997)

HER MAJESTY, MRS. BROWN is a royal treat.  Oh, sure, it's predict-
able-- the story of a grieving Queen Victoria and her helping hand 
Highlander loosens up *way* too soon-- but there's a high time to 
be had watching Billy Connolly (remember him from TV's "Head of the 
Class?") bellow orders to Judy Dench's (remember her as "M" in GOL-
DENEYE?) stuffed-shirt staff.  Yeah, there's bits of political in-
trigue... and a reasonably affecting love story... but the *real* 
fun is seeing so many upturned noses get bent so far out of joint.  
And can you believe how much Connolly both looks *and* sounds like 
John Cleese?  Sorry, sorry, sorry.  (Rated "PG"/103 min.)
