Have you ever wondered what would happen if an American was made the King of England? Well, Ralph (John Goodman) a classless lounge singer finds out when the entire Wyndham family (a cute play on the Windsor family) are wiped out in a freak photography accident. As the nearest surviving heir, Ralph is plucked from his comfortable life on the Vegas strip and placed on the throne. His life is turned upside-down as he loses his freedom and identity all while trying to learn the correct protocol for every situation from Sir Cedric Willingham (Peter O'Toole). Everything from simple table manners to arranged marriages seems to be over poor Ralph’s head as he falls head over heels in love with exotic dancer Miranda. However the next heir to the throne, Lord Percival Graves (John Hurt), is planning to use Ralph’s simple trusting nature and his budding romance against him to gain the crown. Can Ralph make the grade, keep the throne and win Miranda's heart? Or, the bigger question may be, does he even want to?
