Storyline

This is the story an amusement park employee named Jamal Walker who is magically transported back to medieval times in 14th-century England. There, Jamal meets Sir Knolte, a dissolute knight, before he stumbles into the court of the usurper King Leo. Jamal is impressed by what he thinks is the realism of the theme park; only after witnessing a gory beheading does he realize, with horror, where he really is. Jamal encounters the beautiful Victoria who is scheming to return the queen to the throne, and falls afoul of the evil Sir Percival. Joining forces with Sir Knolte and Victoria, Jamal teaches the rebels some helpful football, golfing, and boxing moves, before he dons the armor of the awesome "Black Knight"!

I laughed one time during the entire movie
5 April 2003 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

I laughed once, at the end when he was trying to pick up the girl. This was one of the few serious moments of the movie and I found it utterly hilarious. This movie made me both homicidal and suicidal at the same time (yes, I'm exaggerating, but not by much). I use this movie as a benchmark for utterly horrible movies, and I marvel that the NAACP didn't boycott this movie because of its portrayal of a stereotypical "I'm-ignorant-and-proud-of-it" black man. I went into this movie expecting it to be at least as good as "Nothing to Lose" or "Blue Streak", but it was one of the most agonizing experiences of my life. The only consolation that I have is that I did not pay to see it.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion of this movie. If you thought this movie was funny and entertaining-I'm happy for you, but arguing that it is a 10/10 is ridiculous. The only explanation for this is that people are trying to raise the rating of this movie to an undeserved level which is sad.
