Editorial Reviews

Faith in oneself is crucial but often difficult to develop. Calvin Fuller (Thomas Ian Nicholas), a misfit from the 20th-century "Knights" baseball team, lacks self-confidence. Imagine his alarm when he's sucked into the Middle Ages to answer the wizard Merlin's (Ron Moody) plea for a "Knight" to save King Arthur and Camelot from the scheming Lord Belasco (Art Malik). Intense culture shock befalls all involved as a bewildered Calvin dines on pig snouts and learns to lance while King Arthur (Joss Ackland) and his court members are confounded by 20th-century inventions like rock & roll and roller-blading. Eventually, Calvin's interactions with the king and his court spark a journey of personal growth that leads to love and a newfound confidence that enables him to help King Arthur, Princesses Katey (Paloma Baeza) and Sarah (Kate Winslet), and Camelot as a whole. Will Calvin's confidence accompany him back to the 20th-century? Loosely based on Mark Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. (Ages 5 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

Return to those days of old when knights were bold and baseball ruled the land. Baseball? It's Camelot meets the sandlot in Disney's A KID IN KING ARTHUR'S COURT, the hilarious update of Mark Twain's timeless "A Connecticut Yankee In King Arthur's Court." To 14-year-old little leaguer Calvin Fuller, life is like one big strikeout when he lets his team down. Then an earthquake sends him through a magical time rift, and he finds himself in King Arthur's court. But all is not well with the realm. An aged King Arthur is in danger of losing control to the evil Lord Belasco, and now it's up to Calvin to save the kingdom. But before he can find a way to vanquish Belasco, he must first find a way to conquer his own fears. Now you can own Disney's marvelous mixture of medieval myth and modern mirth that will have the whole family cheering!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! August 5, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
No matter how many times I watch this movie, or the older I get, I am still in love with it! Being a fan of the time of King Arthur, and time travel without the use of science fiction novel tactics, this movie was a thrill for me to watch!
The lead character, Calvin, is a less than popular guy back in his home town of Receda, California. When he is suddenly thrown through time with the help of Merlin, he finds himself in a completely different world. Although the plot doesn't exactly follow any of the stories of King Arthur (i.e. King Aurthur and Guinevere never had any kids, obviously. She ran away w/ Lancelot) but it has the romantic appeal of the time period, and Calvin's friendships with the king and his youngest daughter, Princess Catherine are wonderful! As it goes on, his character flaws are sraightened out and he becomes a stronger person, faced with many tasks most persons never endure. The final scene's tie it all together until he finally goes home, and realizes he can be the person he aspires to.
The film is absolutely wonderful with the adventure, romance, and humor tying togther to make a memorable occassion. I strongly suggest A Kid in King Arthur's Court to anyone who wants a great time, a laugh and a smile!

5.0 out of 5 stars Calvin's journey is amazing! August 10, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
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 =)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, family fun movie. March 1, 2001
By Rebecca
Format:VHS Tape
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and very fun to watch. April 11, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
I enjoyed this sample of Kate Winslet's early work. At the end when she reveals herself as the Black Knight, my 12-year-old grandaughter stood up and shouted "KATE SHINES!!!!" My sentiments exactly. Kate has such screen presence, she is like a magnet. It is interesting to see the early work of an actress before the blockbuster success Titanic. She's a treasure, able to analyze and interpret human emotion for all of us.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Kid not in King Arthur's Court January 25, 2005
Format:DVD
I saw this movie while flipping through tv stations late one night, actually it was early in the morning. It said King Arthur in the title, so me being a fan of Arthurian legend, and having apparently missed this movie from '95. I had some problems with it.

So the "kid" in question is playing baseball. Apparently he is not very good at it (ie: strikes out a lot). After he strikes out to his arch-baseball-rival-pitcher-guy, a big gigantic earthquake came and sucked him into a big whole which apparently is some sort of inside-earth-time-wormhole, or something. They don't really explain that, well it's a kids movie, so I will give them that one for free. Anyways, he gets spat out in the medieaval ages in "Camelot." A few items about King Arthur and his family, Arthur never reached old age, in this movie he appeared as a grandfather figure. And he also didn't have two daughters (he had one son, Mordred) as in this movie.

Well, most of the movie is spent with the people from that era usually the nobility and knights and Arthur's one daughter who is the kid's age, oggling at his backpack (which he lukily brought with him) of futuristic "wonders" and they have a jolly good time. But he wants to get back home. Where's Merlin, oh, he's a willy old face in a well. Yep. So he gets about a days worth of knight training from a non-realistic generous knight and suddenly he's a master fighter and jouster as seen later in the film.

Anyways, the movie ends with him getting back and his new love (Arthur's daughter) and Arthur being in the real world with him (yeah, like Arthur would leave his kingdom for some kid) and he's sent back before the infamous strike out. Blah blah blah.

All in all, kids may be impressed and like this movie.
