The 12 years old Karen falls off her horse, and when she hits the ground, she's way back in the year 528, in England, near Camelot. She's immediately taken under arrest by Sir Lancelot: because of the dark color of her skin he's convinced she's a demon.

Only with her help, Arthur becomes as famous a king as we know him. Written by

This was one of my favorite movies when I was younger. My brother and I (I was 9, he was 7) adored it and watched it repeatedly. It was so simply, yet perfectly done -- it took the classic book and turned it into a modern-day tale, but it didn't try to be a classic itself. It just tried to be funny, and it succeeded. The is the story of Karen, who finds herself in Camelot and impresses everyone with her "magical" twentieth century contraptions, and makes everyone call her Sir Boss. She's a sweet kid, and very eighties, but she's one of the best things in the movie. But I can't not mention the supporting actors -- without them, this movie wouldn't be quite the same. Hugo Blick, who plays Mordred, just LOOKS like an evil villain, and the lines he delivers are so corny and so, just, evil villainy, that you KNOW you should hate him but you secretly like him. And Whip Hubley, who plays Lancelot, is attractive and lovable. Emma Samms plays the Queen Guenevere with lightheartedness and beauty. The movie is rarely boring; there's one adventure after another. Fun for kids, and a decade later, I still think it's funny.
