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.
