Description

Fast-talking streetwise Jamal Walker (MARTIN LAWRENCE) has big-time plans but for now, he is stuck in a dead end job at a medieval theme park. After an accident at work, Jamal is suddenly transported back in time and finds himself in 14th century England - a world of knights in shining armor, a wicked king and damsels in distress. The Middle Ages will never be the same, after Jamal uses his 21st Century street smarts and attitude to help a down-and-out knight and a beautiful woman defeat an evil king.

Synopsis
The Martin Lawrence comedy BLACK KNIGHT, sharply directed by Gil Junger, borrows its theme from A CONNECTICUT YANKEE AT KING ARTHUR'S COURT, with Mark Twain's Yankee being replaced by Jamal Walker (Lawrence). Jamal works at a decrepit California theme park in danger of being put out of business by a rival park. Cleaning Medieval World's moat, he falls into the water, only to recover in 14th-century England. There, Jamal meets Sir Knolte (Tom Wilkinson), a dissolute knight, before he stumbles into the court of the usurper King Leo (Kevin Conway). Jamal is impressed by what he thinks is the realism of the theme park; only after witnessing a gory beheading does he realize, with horror, where he really is. Jamal encounters the beautiful Victoria (Marsha Thomason) who is scheming to return the queen (Helen Carey) to the throne, and falls afoul of the evil Sir Percival (Vincent Regan). Joining forces with Sir Knolte and Victoria, Jamal teaches the rebels some helpful football, golfing, and boxing moves, before he dons the armor of the awesome Black Knight. BLACK KNIGHT is full of Lawrence's broad humor, and he and the classically trained Wilkinson have great fun playing off each other.
