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"!

Very Disappointing
18 December 2001 | by samslickSee all my reviews

I am a big Martin Lawrence fan. I believe he has a natural instinct for comedy that few others have. However, this movie is absolutely horrible. There were few funny scenes and the story(?) was weak and lame. It is amazing that a star of this stature would accept such a poorly written script. Don't even bother renting the video.
