In Connecticut, Hank (Philippe Ross) is a shy high-school teenager that plays rock in a band with his friends. While trying to fix an amplifier for the band, he gets a shock and awakes in the land of a peasant. He is imprisoned by Alisande (Polly Shannon), who is the fiancée of Sir Galahad (Paul Hopkins), and brought to the Court of King Arthur (Nick Mancuso). Hank lures King Arthur and Merlin (Michael York) using his knowledge of an eclipse and succeeds to get a workshop to try to return to the future and Alisandre falls in love with him. Meanwhile the evil Morgan Le Fay (Theresa Russell) conspire with the knight Ulrich (Jack Langedijk) to overthrow King Arthur.

"A Young Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" is an entertaining adventure of an American teenager that mysteriously travels to the past to the King Arthur's Court. There are several film with similar storyline and this one does not disappoint with a great cast. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Um Forasteiro na Corte do Rei Arthur" ("A Foreigner in King Arthur's Court")

Note: On 19 October 1998, I saw this film for the first time (my vote: seven)
