"Thomas Ian Nicholas is awesome in A KID IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT. He's very talented, and so is the rest of this cast. This movie is basically about a kid who lives in a town called Roceda, in California (I think). Anyway, during a Little League baseball game, Calvin (which is the kid's name) goes up to bat - and shaking all over in fear, of course - and almost instantly strikes out. While heading back to the bench, an earthquake starts to rumble, and everybody races out of the bench...except for Calvin. Instead, Calvin is magically transported back in the time of King Arthur! Once he gets there, Calvin meets Merlin, who sent him there by accident (thinking that Calvin was a knight because his baseball team was called the Knights). But when Calvin explains that he's not a real knight, Merlin tells him that Calvin "will do" and Calvin now must save the Kingdom of Camelot from the evil Lord Belasco who wants to try and take over the kingdom by trying to marry Princess Sarah (Kate Winslet), King Arthur's oldest daughter! Also, while helping King Arthur, Calvin of course, falls in love with King Arthur's youngest daughter, Princess Katie. (And before Calvin got transported back to the Middle Ages, he of course manages to retrieve his backpack full of modern-day items such as a CD Walkman and rollerblades, which he uses to impress the people of the Middle Ages.) This is a great film for all ages and kids find it quite entertaining (in fact, so did I - and I'm 17 years old!). It's really exciteding and fun to see Kate Winslet and Thomas Ian Nicholas playing roles in their earlier years of filming...and this movie is really funny, too.P.S.: If you love Thomas Ian Nicholas, then check out these other great Thomas Ian Nicholas Flicks: ROOKIE OF THE YEAR, A KID IN ALADDIN'S PALACE, and AMERICAN PIE. And, if you love Kate Winslet, then check out these other Kate Winslet Flicks: SENSE AND SENSIBLITY, QUILLS (her new movie...still playing in theaters), and of course, TITANIC."
Calvin's journey is amazing!

"Okay so Calvin isn't the smartest, bravest, coolest kid in his hometown, Receda. But after he loses a baseball game for his team the Knights he is magically transported back in time to the days of King Arthur. A place where is 20th century knowlege and courage is all that can protect him. WHen he finds out that Merlin himself was the one that brought him hear he is shocked (and so is Merlin) that Calvin is supposed to be a Hero that will save King Arthur's Kingdom. Will Calivn suceed? Or is he better of in the 20th century. If you like Midevil tales and kid flicks you should see this movie. Hey, Cal isn't that bad looking either =)"

"Kate was the best actor in the film no doubt, but as this is a movie for Children I cant really say anything bad about it. My kids loved it and keep in mind it isnt a "new" film in which the effects are cooler than life or perfect.
All in all its a good/cute movie for kids or a Kate fans collection."
