Boston Globe
A Knight's Tale, will either repel you or win you over. It won me over.

New York Daily News
With its cheerful hailstorm of anachronisms and classic-rock soundtrack, there's nothing medieval about it.

Slate
Simply a jolly good (k)night out.

Wall Street Journal
A Knight's Tale wasn't made for people like me. It was made for the kids of summer.

New York Magazine (Vulture)
For all its hipness, the movie serves up some awfully old chestnuts.

Salon.com
Works neither as an exuberant rock 'n' roll picture nor as a heroic fable. It will rock you --straight to sleep.

Variety
Traditionalists and older viewers in general will scoff, while pop culture addicts will no doubt go with the flow.
25
Miami Herald
A Middle Ages "Rocky" that spares no cliche in its unduly long, 2 1/4 hours.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
The film's one saving grace is Ledger (Mel Gibson's son in "The Patriot").

L.A. Weekly
The skits are dreadful, the jokes suck.
