Did You Know?


To get the electric chemistry between the leads, they went away together for a week of bonding. Unfortunately Vanessa Hudgens couldn't make it, so it was just Josh Whitehouse and his horse. See more »


When Sir Cole is first transported to modern day, a group of young women circle him in order to take a selfie. When the selfie is viewed on the phone, the girls are in a different order. When the view returns to the group, they are still in the original arrangement, not the one seen on the phone. See more »


Brooke: Um, well, first thing I think we should do is update your wardrobe by... at least a few centuries. I'm sure I can find something my ex-boyfriend left lying around.
Sir Cole: Well, please thank him for me.
Brooke: Oh, well, he's my ex, um, which means I don't see him anymore.
Sir Cole: Mm. Well, I'm sorry.
Brooke: No, don't be. He turned out to be, as the kids say, a real douche.
Sir Cole: I see. Well, um, while you fetch the douche's garments, might I inquire as to a tub and a cauldron so that I can boil some water for a bath?

Strangely charming
4 December 2019 | by KijofregSee all my reviews

"I like your armour. It looks...authentic." Eh... What? Somehow I have a feeling that they didn't have plastic armour in the 14th century. XD Anyway, this was just as predictable and cheesy as expected, but somehow there was at least something charming about the male lead. He was just so laidback despite him involuntarily travelling several hundred years into the future. Steel steeds and dragons? No big deal. Everything modern? Oh, how nice. And I love how he just knew about modern Christmas traditions. Did they even call it Christmas in 13-something? I doubt it. Anyway, cheesy movie with charming leads. Very Hallmark-y.
