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.
Critics seem to only love movies that put people to sleep

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.
