The movie start off by a gloomy image with dark shadows and the distance you hear horses approacing...the noise comes closer, and there you have it -- Two dorks that are banging coconutshells together! The gloomy atmosphere is ripped away instantly, and you are in for a joyride in silly comedy!
It is the story of King Arthur that has become supreme ruler of rural brittain as he has been given a sword by the lady of the lake ("Pull the other one!").
