Audience Reviews for A Kid in King Arthur's Court

  • Dec 05, 2011
    A Kid in King Arthur's Court is one of those childhood films that are quite forgettable. This is a film that hasn't aged well. This is the type of film that is only worth watching once, and when you get older, you realize that this film isn't a classic like so many other childhood favorite. The film might have been entertaining when I first saw it, but years later, it doesn't do anything for me. The acting wasn't that great, and the gags aren't anything to write home about. This is one childhood film that is plainly stupid. This film doesn't belong among the many childhood classics that I've seen. This is a poorly made film with a bad plot, bad acting and poor directing. The film isn't that entertaining, and it's fairly sloppy overall. A kid in King Arthur's Court is a mediocre, unimpressive film that really doesn't cut it. This isn't a good film, it's a mediocre effort and it really doesn't stand the test of time. I liked it when I was a kid, and looking back now, I can't believe I enjoyed this trash. This film is pathetic, awful entertainment, and this is a film not worth watching. There are so many better family films than this that are actually funny. If you're looking a funny film, pass up on this, as this isn't a good family comedy. Kids may dig it, but it's not something that the entire family will enjoy. This is a missed opportunity to create something that the entire family can enjoy. Stick with Toy Story if you want a better constructed film.

    This movie opened up a whole new world for me. I don't know how, but it did.

    Silly spin on A Connecticut Yankee wastes a good cast. It's two biggest names, Kate Winslet and Daniel Craig, were just starting out so both are relegated to the sidelines for most of the film.
