A dinner of week-old turkey legs and stale mead would be more fun than this Ren Faire-set rom-com disaster.

Finding a fresh setting for a comedy is difficult, but a Renaissance fair is too broad a target.

Marshall does manage a breezy, good-natured tone toward this oft-mocked cultural phenomenon that allows for eye-rolling and smiling in equal measure.

We've seen this kind of thing before; it was old when Bill Murray did it in Meatballs.

Audience Reviews for All's Faire in Love


There's a reason this was on a shelf for a few years. It's an indie comedy, so much of it does not work. Owen Benjamin is horribly miscast! But... I do have a soft spot for Renaissance Faire themed things. Christina Ricci is perfect as the romcom love interest and if not for her height I think she'd get more roles in the genre. I found this movie amusing and worth the Netflix watch.

This is really a dumb POS... but I secretly enjoyed the antics. It has to go on my guilty pleasure list even though: the plot is predictable, the acting is bad, and the humor is juvenile.

Pretty good movie. Pretty funny, bad plot, good performances by cast, especially Benjamin, Lillard, and Sheridan.
