Funnier than Schindler's list!
on 14 November 2011
To say this film is comedy gold would be doing it a disservice. The script is magnificent, the direction top quality, and the acting is Oscar worthy. The best film of its year, nay, its decade.
Martin Lawrence puts in a powerhouse performance as a young man coming to terms with his journey through time. Not only is he out of his time, he is out of his mind, and he's about to get medieval on you! The only disappointing scenes are when the brilliant Lawrence is not on screen, and we have to deal with Tom Wilkinson's turgid performance as Sir Knolte.
I, personally, see this film as the springboard of Lawrence's career. The plaudits he recieved for such a performance allowed him to star in such blockbusters as 'Big Momma's house 2' and 'Wild Hogs'. Two critically acclaimed successes, in every sense.
