A KID IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT (1995)

Summary

Loosely based on Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, which has been made into several film versions already, "A Kid in King Arthur's Court" tells the story of Calvin Fuller (Thomas Ian Nicholas), a misfit from the 20th-century "Knights" baseball team, who lacks self-confidence. When an earthquake strikes during a baseball game, Calvin falls into the Middle Ages to answer the plea of wizard Merlin (Ron Moody) for a "Knight" to save King Arthur and Camelot from the scheming Lord Belasco (Art Malik). Intense culture shock befalls all involved as a bewildered Calvin dines on pig snouts and learns to lance while King Arthur (Joss Ackland) and his court members are confounded by 20th-century inventions such as rock and roll and roller-blading. Eventually, Calvin's interactions with the king and his court spark a journey of personal growth that leads to love and a newfound confidence that enables him to help King Arthur, Princesses Katey (Paloma Baeza) and Sarah (Kate Winslet), and Camelot as a whole.

This film is rated PG for mild adventure action and language.
