      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Palm Royale's fabulous cast and visual splendor make for a diverting enough destination, but its wayward tone results in a curiously unfulfilling trip to paradise.

      Dennis K Nicely performed, great art direction and representation of the late 60's, easy watch, good entertainment. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review Nathan M No one drives me away from a screen quite like Kristen Wiig does. But it doesn't stop me from trying, and wishing i didn't, every time. That aside, if you like a shallow plot with characters as deep as a toddler pool, this is for you. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review George C Very fun and skilfully performed. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/13/24 Full Review Carlos Eduardo C Kristen Wiig is always incredible and it doesn't hurt at all to have Allison Janey and Laura Dern in the same cast. So good and light! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/13/24 Full Review Jen F Wonderful cast and entertaining storyline. The fashion and flaws do not disappoint. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/13/24 Full Review Eric P The critics are out of their lame minds! This show is stellar all around! If you are not entertained by this story, then you are not paying attention! The performances are amazing, and the set and costume design is devine!

      Wenlei Ma The Nightly (AU) The costumes are colourful and dynamic while the production design is luxurious. If nothing else, it’s wonderful to look at. Apr 1, 2024 Full Review Esther Zuckerman Bloomberg News Loosely based on Juliet McDaniel’s novel Mr. and Mrs. American Pie, the show is a dishy delight; even when its plot meanders, it is sustained by wildly entertaining performances. Mar 21, 2024 Full Review Craig Mathieson The Age (Australia) Created by Abe Sylvia, there’s sketch farce, delusional pathology, and revisionist history at work, with Wiig playing Maxine with a mannered optimism. I’m watching to see if it ties together, and for a stacked supporting cast. Mar 21, 2024 Full Review Joyce Slaton Common Sense Media Wiig is pitch perfect as Maxine, a social climber with a lot of water under her bridge; she's simultaneously relatable and ridiculous, and she looks absolutely fantastic in her wardrobe of floral 1960s shifts. Apr 10, 2024 Full Review Cassondra Feltus Black Girl Nerds 'Palm Royale' is a darkly funny dramedy with deliciously stunning visuals, glamorous fashion, wicked humor, and characters as layered as its mysteries. Rated: 4/5 Apr 5, 2024 Full Review André Hereford Metro Weekly (Washington, DC) 'Palm Royale' revs up the comedy slowly but ultimately hits cruising speed as a gleefully campy spin on nighttime soaps. Rated: 3/5 Apr 4, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
