Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The result is half Python, half Ivanhoe -- and not as much fun as either.
Rotten: May please aficionados of oldies stations and Xtreme sports but few others.
Fresh: More often than not, it's fun.
Fresh: Essentially, it's a screenful of pseudo-medieval popcorn that hits a high enough level of goofy fun to transcend a pretty blatant marketing strategy aimed at the MTV demographic.
One of my favorite movies!
The critics completely screwed up every review I've ever read utterly love this movie and I don't care what anyone thinks. I've seen watched it so many times I know the dialogue (yeah, that many times). Sure it's not exactly historically accurate in every way but I really don't care. For the person who suggested people only appreciate this movie because of his death I can only say that's total crap! I've felt this way since the first time I saw it the year it came out. Actually I can't watch it now without feeling a little sad that this guys life ended so young. Nevertheless, I still love every minute of this movie.
A knights tale
This movie is amazing! It is hilarious and a great action movie! Heath Ledger is awesome in this movie.
Critics know nothing
I agree with some other reviews in that critics just aren't any good at rating. The worst movies I've seen were very highly rated by critics(uh, Machete? Only movie I ever walked out of), and the best movies I've seen have been bashed by critics and this is one of them. This movie is just plain fun. Good over evil, and goofy enough to keep everyone laughing throughout. The critics are the ones who are rotten here, not the movie.
