Ye Olde Garbage
Saw this movie when I bought a bootleg videotape of it a while back, and let me just say this. The quality of the video was almost as poor as the movie itself. Black Knight is TERRIBLE. First of all, the acting is non-existent. Martin Lawrence, you can do better! This is probably the first movie I've seen where an actor gets paid to act like himself. The director, Gil Junger, must of thought the movie would do the acting for him. Sorry, Gil. Second of all, there's no plot whatsoever. An amusement park worker accidently gets transported to the year 1328. That's about it! At least "A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court" was actually entertaining. And probably the greatest offense of all is that Black Knight is NOT FUNNY! The funniest scene in the movie is probably when Martin Lawrence brushes his teeth in the beginning. Oh sure, Martin TRIES to be funny, but all he accomplishes is making an ass out of himself. Poor Martin. I stopped the tape halfway through and put it on my shelf for use as a dust collector. OK, so I don't TOTALLY regret buying the video...

If you want a good Martin Lawrence movie, try Blue Streak. Just stay away from this load of garbage.
