Some of the juxtaposition of modern elements with medieval action is silly fun, but a lot of the film is mediocre. The characters never rise above thin caricatures and some of the dialogue and attempts at modernity are almost too cheesy.

Average to it's core. Nothing very memorable, but nothing bad either.

Watching this and Karate Kid together is an interesting pairing of 80s and 90s music underdog movies. This movie has so much character, it is easy to overlook the weaker points. And the scene where he follows his footsteps home...very good. Of course, I'd be remiss not to point out how this movie really proves how much onscreen charisma Heath Ledger had.

A fantastic movie, I don't care what the majority says. It is funny, interesting, and Heath Ledger is lovable, as always.

"A Knight's Tale" by Yojimbo

A young squire dons his master's armour when he drops dead during a tournament and so sets about impersonating a nobleman to transcend his peasant origins as a champion jouster. History gets the Hollywood treatment as the kiddie-friendly "you can be anything you want to be if you believe in yourself" message gets rammed down our throats yet again. Our square jawed hero is of course valiant in battle but a tongue tied boob in the company of the beautiful princess who is, as all Medieval princesses were, a cross between a Maxim cover girl and a suffragette. Accompanied by bickering, streetwise sidekicks (including Geoffrey Chaucer who is demoted to a cross between a fairground barker and Don King) and finding a nemesis in the shape of a hissable nobleman who inevitably discovers his secret ...
