Audience Reviews for A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court

½

Paramount's pleasant musical adaptation of Mark Twain's story with Bing Crosby in the lead; the song "Once and For Always" was a minor hit.

In the first place, the plot is absurd, I mean if he traveled through time how does he also travel across the ocean? You can't do both can you? If he was dreaming maybe, but it's not supposed to be a dream. Also, there were some other silly errors throughout the movie. On top of all that, there is silly dialogue and acting. This movie doesn't make much sense, but it's somewhat enjoyable if you can get over all that. Overall, it's just okay.

Light, fun, colerful and entertaining. It's nothing deep or significant, but a good star vehicle for Bing Crosby.
