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.
December 3, 2001
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.
November 29, 2001
Tedious and predictable.
November 27, 2001
Paint-by-numbers cliché-fest.
November 26, 2001
Black Knight isn't awful, strictly speaking, just tepid and predictable.
November 25, 2001
A time-travel comedy that doesn't go anywhere we haven't been before.

November 24, 2001
The latest in a string of mediocre-to-bad films that have latched onto Lawrence's name as their sole marketable commodity.

November 21, 2001
Intermittently amusing though sloppy around the edges, Black Knight makes a serviceable vehicle for Martin Lawrence's clowning.

Slight but highly enjoyable.

November 21, 2001
Were it not for Lawrence's presence, you get the feeling the flimsily constructed comedy would simply collapse and blow away.
November 21, 2001
It's a bad sign when a movie begins with an extended close-up sequence of its star plucking a nostril hair.
November 21, 2001
This is Lawrence's show, his chance to demonstrate his comic nimbleness and appeal. He runs with it.

November 21, 2001
Represents yet another blown opportunity to raise Martin Lawrence's game to a higher level.
November 21, 2001
The filmmakers ... seem to have been inspired mainly by contempt for the audience: everything about their work feels lazy and slapdash.

A rip-roaring time-travel comedy tailored beautifully to Martin Lawrence's protean talent.

November 21, 2001
Lo, after much exertion, the quest for laughs by Sir Mugs-a-lot ends up where it started -- in a soggy ditch.

November 21, 2001
Most of the gags are groaners.
November 20, 2001
Has about as much swagger as its bland and basic title.
November 20, 2001
Black Knight is a movie that knows its audience. Its underlying philosophy might be: why try harder when this is all they expect?

November 20, 2001
Utter nonsense.
November 20, 2001
Monty Python and the Holy Martin, in other words, this ain't.

November 20, 2001
Less original than a Renaissance Faire handbook.
November 20, 2001
Runs out of ideas at about the halfway mark.
November 20, 2001
It represents the ultimate in Hollywood cynicism and laziness.
November 20, 2001
What threatens to be a one-joke film turns into a sweetly funny tale.
