Flynn, an over 30 "professional student," is banned from more classes, since he already has 22 degrees. Unexpectedly hired by a mysterious library, he's soon pursuing a stolen artifact from the library, a pursuit taking him to far-off lands.Written by
The Artifacts in the Library are: Tesla's Death Ray, The Holy Grail, Little Boy (atomic bomb), The Ark of the Covenant, The Golden Fleece, King Midas, Excalibur, the Goose that laid the golden egg, Pandora's Box, the real Mona Lisa (a copy is in the Louvre), a Unicorn, the Rocketeer's Jetpack, Ali Baba's Flying Carpet, and the Spear of Longinus (Spear of Destiny).

When given his initial tour of the library, he encounters the sword that Arthur supposedly pulled from the stone. This sword was unnamed in the Arthurian Legends; however, in the film, they called it Excalibur. Excalibur was the name of the sword that Arthur later received from the Lady of the Lake. Furthermore, historians generally consider the swords separate. This is a common misconception. See more »
This movie is light-hearted and fun. Shows that even intellectuals can be adventurous, and good guys can win. The historical and mythical artifacts were terrific, and their basic premise sheer inspiration. The various locations around the world added an interesting element with exotic lands and beautiful scenery. Also, the existing and developing relationships were handled in a believable fashion. Great work by the main character, who is versatile, entertaining and talented. Also appreciated the "side-kick" who had many skills and provided some counterpoint to the bad guys. Would love to see a sequel with the same characters, maybe picking up where this one left off.
