Black Knight feels like a lazily constructed movie, filled with lame gags and constant mugging from Lawrence.

A single fish-out-of-water joke told over and over again.
Mark Twain managed to pen A Connecticut Yankee all by his lonesome, but three highly-paid Hollywood writers were needed to put together this lazy retread.
Martin Lawrence [stars] as a theme park worker who falls into a scummy moat and surfaces in the Middle Ages -- perhaps in search of people who would find his humor fresh and original. No such luck.
Tedious and predictable.
Black Knight isn't awful, strictly speaking, just tepid and predictable.
Martin Lawrence amuses in raunchy comedy.
Lawrence relies on his usual act as the hip black guy surrounded by square white men.
The first 23 minutes of Black Knight (yes, I timed it) are easily the most effective...
If Army of Darkness was remade by members of the KKK, the results would likely approximate Black Knight.
Lawrence chooses to rely solely on his fourth-grade instincts to get him through the film, with no sidekick to dilute his overbearingly tacky style.
While it's not one of the best comedies I've ever seen, it's still really good. Some nice fight scenes, some great humor, a good script for a comedy. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and it deserves a bit better than 14%.
Granted, there were a few scenes that weren't that funny. The extremely forced "Dance to the Music" scene in the castle was probably the films lowlight. Most of the other jokes at least bring a smile though.
Also, the film seems to take a little to long to get to it's point.
Luckily there is some good. Most of the jokes were actually pretty funny, and one or two were laugh out funny. It seems to be less of a great script as it is funny actors. I guess this was before Lawrence started to get really unfunny with movies like "Rebound", becuase he actually does a really good performance.
For a comedy, the plot is pretty cool. You'll have to see the movie though. I think it was a parody of "A Kid in King Arthur's Court" and a really good one.
Over all, is it amazing? No. But it's enjoyable, and a good movie to see if you have a Martin Lawrence obsessed friend/girlfriend/boyfriend.
More comical than expected, lots of predictability, but a light hearted, easy watching, no brainer
Previews made it look hilarious, but watch it and you'll see how misled they were.
