PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Romance
After his master dies, a peasant squire, fueled by his desire for food and glory, creates a new identity for himself as a knight.
At the end, Chaucer says, "I think I'll write this down." In real life, "The Knight's Tale" is the first chapter in Geoffrey Chaucer's "The Canterbury Tales."
Should we help him?
As William is testing his new armor for the first time, he gets a beam thrown to his chest. In this stunt a stand-in is used. You can see the color of his hair change from blond to brown.
After the credits finish, Roland, Wat, Kate, and Geoffrey Chaucer have a flatulence contest/drinking game. Wat loses, but Kate is the obvious winner.
There is a slight difference between the UK cinema version and the UK DVD release. In the cinematic release, the queen/Robbie Williams version of We Are The Champions starts playing when William and Jocelyn kiss just before the credits, whereas the DVD release has a different song play. However, We Are The Champions still plays over the last half of the credits.
