Put a new romantic-comedy on Netflix and I’m sure to, at some point, see it. Put out a comedy that is titled The Royal Treatment, implying a romance about a royal, and I’m ever surer to see said movie.
The Royal Treatment (2022) Netflix Film Review
Hard work doesn’t scare Isabella or “Izzy” (Laura Marano) as everyone calls her. However what does cause her timidity is telling her mother she has dreams beyond working in her salon. She wants to go places and experience something different, even if that version of different is only steps away. Into her life walks Prince Thomas (Mena Massoud). Hired, quite by accident, as a hairstylist, Izzy is unable to reign in her temper during their meeting and quite unlike how most treat him, she leaves, the job incomplete.
But their paths cross again and through a series of surprising events, Izzy is hired to be the stylist for Prince Thomas’ upcoming wedding and together they uncover parts of his country he hasn’t seen.‘THE ROYAL TREATMENT’: THE CUTE WHOLESOME NETFLIX ROMANTIC COMEDY #NETFLIX #THEROYALTREATMENT #GOODMOVIES #ROMANTICCOMEDY #ROMCOM #ROMANCEMOVIES Click To Tweet
Though they aren’t always A+ movies, Netflix is doing more to produce feel good films than the box office. This seems a trend I do hope shifts because we all love a feel good kind of movie that makes us giggle. The Royal Treatment certainly does this, including a tongue and cheek reference to Netflix’s other royal universe from the Christmas Prince movies.
Written by Holly Hester, she hasn’t written a great deal, but has served as producer on shows like Last Man Standing. I don’t think the script is quite as strong as it could be or maybe it’s the actors that don’t play the scene quite right, but either way, this has a few flaws. Nonetheless, this film is also really sweet and has a very wholesome concept in that it’s a pretty family friendly movie.
There’s lots of color in the production and if a “pretty and proper” royal film isn’t your jam, this one steps away from those trappings. It’s more about digging into a culture than the castle, and while I’m always all for that and don’t want that to go away, this is fun too. It’s a play on Izzy’s passions and expands the prince’s opinions, too. Fun, colorful and wholesome, The Royal Treatment is certainly entertaining if not a little bit silly here and there.
You can see this 2022 comedy exclusively with a Netflix subscription.

Content: there’s nothing to really note. If you are into being covered fully, Izzy does wear crop tops throughout the entire film, and there may be some minor, “winking” kind of innuendo. A man mentions a former male lover (briefly and in passing), but the film is perfectly PG appropriate.
