This lively time-travel fantasy is the clear result of imagination and reflection on the part of writers Michael Part and Robert L. Levy and director Michael Gottlieb and their colleagues, who possess a crucial light touch.

This lame effort, Disney's latest live-action motion picture for children, owes a big, fat nod for its plot to Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. In no way, however, does it improve upon the original

Sitting through it, I found myself shuddering at what Disney may have in store for next summer.

It is numbingly bland, homogenized and deflated by an utter lack of original wit or charm. Worst of all, it is subtly but conspicuously condescending to its target audience.

It's a missed opportunity for introducing the Mortal Kombat generation to medieval combat that was really mortal.

Rarely do the well-financed wizards at Walt Disney Pictures cook up a movie this badly written, acted, and directed.

The ragtag adaptation by Michael Part and Robert Levy is familiar fodder run through a blender too high and too fast.

For fantasy to work, two elements are required: an audience willing to suspend its disbelief, and a film able to create its own logically consistent world.

Because of the square, lackluster way that director Michael Gottleib has staged his material, the whole production seems sort of limp and perfunctory.

Even with Nichols, decent production values, a pair of plucky princesses, and a few pleasant surprises tucked in here and there, A Kid in King Arthur's Court is a pretty prosaic picture.
