| Wonderful movie!
This is such a great film that a professor of mine actually used it in a Medieval Civilization class as extra credit. This was not because the movie was so historically accurate, but because the movie was so much funnier when we applied what we learned in her class to it! It was really hard to pick only 10 funny lines!

To anyone that watched it once and didn't quite get it or got frustrated the first time, here is a tip: Catch it on DVD with the subtitles or closed-captioning on. That way you will be sure to catch all of the French insults and the other one-liners that fly by so fast! I don't recommend doing that with kids in the room - my 7-year-old picked up a couple of words on the screen that he had missed previously...

Enjoy!

Quotes

King Arthur: Whoa, there!


Goofs

After Sir Lancelot's wedding-crashing, the bride is first seen with no blood on her face. Then a close-up shows her with bright red blood coming from her mouth and running onto her chin. In the next shot, the blood is gone again.


Crazy Credits

The following are inserted into the real opening credits. They start as subtitles "translating" the credits into a "Pidgin-English-Swedish". (Though genuine Swedish does not use ø or ë.)
