Not very funny or fun to watch. Goldberg can't save it and everyone else seems to be taking the p***.
Dr Vivien Morgan accidentally gets sent back in time to the court of King Arthur. Wearing strange clothes, dropping from the sky and being black, she is naturally mistaken as a witch and taken to be burnt alive. However a timely total eclipse allows Morgan to fool the King into thinking she is a great wizard. Using her knowledge of the future she accomplishes many things and sets out to teach Arthur how to be a better King to his subjects.
Yet another spin on the old Twain story however this one MUST be good cause it's a TV movie! With Whoopi Goldberg! Yes, that's right it's an unimaginative bit of fluff. The story is nothing special and nothing new the main changes are the `urban' aspect Whoopi brings to it and the slave aspect that she brings to the story of kings and subjects. This means we have lots of Whoopi teaching high-5's, teaching them all to dance etc. The way she fits in so easily (despite wearing Reeboks) is very lazy and it show little effort has gone into the script. When the end approaches and everyone starts learning valuable lessons about life, you know you've just watched a TVM.
Whoopi does her usual stuff, but it's years since she's been at her comedic best (even her 2001 Oscars was tame when compared with Billy Crystal) and she can't save this just by being Afro-American. The rest of the cast just seem bemused. Baeza tries hard and seems sincere but Donohoe is clearly pining back to her LA Law days, while York just have a mocking smile on his face for the whole film in fact just like in Austin Powers, the difference being that was meant to be a spoof.
Overall, TV movies generally promise very little and deliver very little this has nothing new to offer and doesn't do anything with the recycled material that it has. Poor for kids only.
