King Arthur attempts to bring order by founding the Knights of the Round Table, but the forbidden love between his wife Guinevere and the gallant Sir Lancelot tragically overshadows the noble effort. This acclaimed musical was based on the popular Broadway success by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe.

Critic Reviews for Camelot
... considered a classic by many and a disaster by others. I'm in that other camp.
Often so misguided that it threatens to become a spoof worthy of Monty Python or Mel Brooks -- when Arthur hisses, "I demand a man's vengeance!" he sounds exactly like Cloris Leachman bleating, "Death to King Louis!" in History of the World: Part I.
...a sentimental, idealistic piece of romance and adventure, fluff to be sure, but fluff I continue to enjoy.
A handsome to look at but dull and flat musical despite the high caliber talent.
Ponderous and super romantic date movie musical.
so corny you've got to love it
Audience Reviews for Camelot
Beautiful music and strong performances from Richard Harris and Vanessa Redgrave, however they are not singers and it hurts the picture mightily, leaving you wondering how much better it could have been with Richard Burton, Robert Goulet and especially Julie Andrews. Some of the costumes are truly amazing and justly famous.More
A rousing version of the Broadway musical. Perhaps the definitive Camelot version. It's very fresh and lively. The songs are great for the most part, with only a few sappy and boring ones to contend with. It's a delight to view the lushness of the sets and costumes.More
I hate musicals, and this a a perfect example why. Seeing Richard Harris and Vanessa Redgrave, great actors both, embarrass themselves bursting into song at inappropriate moments at the expense of any suspension of disbelief or drama is just shocking. Dreadful.More
