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"!

Goofs

The executioner tries to cut a melon with an axe two times before turning the axe blade sideways, and smashing the melon. The force of a blow from the edge of an axe would be greater than from the flat, so if he can't cut the melon, he should not be able to break it with the flat of the axe either. See more »

Hollywood, please stop making this kind of garbage...
11 November 2002 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

How did this get made? I sat through about 30 minutes of this stinker on cable TV and decided that I'd wasted enough of my life.

Martin Lawrence is as about as unfunny as they come, robbed of his foul-mouthed "street-smart" vulgarities in this so called "comedy". He resorts to mugging that would shame even Jerry Lewis from the brief time I spent watching this auto accident of a movie. Can we make a movie that doesn't present a hipster being thrown into the past and immediately "funking" up the locals? The scene where Martin gets his groove on, teaching a medieval orchestra to play Sly and the Family Stone was like having my fingernails pulled out. Somehow this movie seems subtly racist to me, since I cannot imagine a reverse scenario being made. This kind of mindless junk gets made because people will pay to see it...making lousy actors like Martin Lawrence rich and ensuring the inevitable worse sequel. If you support this kind of thing, you get what you deserve. NO stars. Deserves worse, if that's possible.
