For many, many years now, StoneHenge and the "immediate" surrounding area; with its National Trust paths, fences and barriers has looked completely different to how it is portrayed in the film. Even if Stonehenge had been magically repaired for the event. The stones are all in the wrong places! Not to mention the strange invisibility of the 3 roads which run right past it. See more »

A woeful mixture of fantasy, reality and unintentional humour.
Nearly a laugh a minute, and some were probably intentional. The performance of Adrian Paul as Lancelot caused giggles every time he spoke, and a less regal Arthur I cannot imagine. If you give this film any thought it fell apart even more thoroughly than on a total suspension of disbelief. Only Rik Mayall seemed to have got the joke. My 9 year old boy loved it but even he thought that it was totally unbelievable!
