    This was a mixed bag. I really liked the band of characters surrounding William Thatcher (Heath Ledger). Roland (Mark Addy), Wat (Alan Tudyk), Geoffrey Chaucer (Paul Bettany, and yes, that Geoffrey Chaucer) and later Kate (Laura Fraser) are a terrific little group. Bettany in particular really shines, his stuff here is always incredibly entertaining (notwithstanding the hacky “I’ll be here all week” line, which I won’t blame him for). I haven’t read “Canterbury Tales” since high school, and even then…

    Glorious anachronism and delicious chemistry among its actors add enough style to turn this otherwise average sports flick into an enjoyable bout.

    Who cares about anachronisms when you have Heath Ledger running around having a great time!

    I don't care what anybody says - I love A KNIGHT'S TALE something fierce. The film is effortlessly fun, features a great ensemble cast of likable characters and knows exactly what kind of film it wants to be - a goofy, earnest puppy dog of a movie that just wants to be rubbed behind the ears. Pretty people doing daring deeds, goofing with historical precedent and just generally charming the pants off audience. It's OK for a movie to just be fun every once and a while. Get that jousting stick out of your but and remember how to be human!

    This was way funnier than i thought it was going to be. Alan Tudyk is perfect, as is Mark Addy and the rest. The inclusion of modern music and modernish idioms and language was a little bit weird but also gave it a charm.

    A very adventurous and fun film that has Heath Ledger kicking ass as a peasant who becomes a knight while Alan Tudyk is mocked for dancing like.... a girl!

    Not a favourite of mine but my wife enjoy it. One must do some sacrifices at times :-)

    "You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting. In what world could you possibly beat me?"

    The cast are the only ones that bring any sort of energy to the spiritless material of A Knight's Tale. The anachronistic modern soundtrack is kind of cool, but not used very much and there's no rousing sense of adventure that I expect in this kind of movie. All that and there's no fun to be had at all.

    Strangely enjoyable, (thank heavens for teenage children to watch it with) which can only be down to such a terrific cast. The romantic plot drags out with pointless twists. But Paul Bettany has an interesting almost equally prominent role as Ledger and the friendship of Ledger's gang is the charm that keeps you engaged. Essentially Bill & Ted like but with a bit more emotional torment. Cazenove is especially good. And like that pretty blond Shane Briant from the Hammer films…
