Storyline

The 12 years old Karen falls off her horse, and when she hits the ground, she's way back in the year 528, in England, near Camelot. She's immediately taken under arrest by Sir Lancelot: because of the dark color of her skin he's convinced she's a demon. But with some help of the 20th century's advanced technology she can safe herself from the stake and establish herself as great sorcerer. Only with her help, Arthur becomes as famous a king as we know him. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Cheesy, but fun. Don't compare to the book.
21 January 2019 | by bailiffquimby-30286See all my reviews

So long as you go into it recognizing that it has virtually no resemblance to the Twain novel of the same name, and that this film is clearly made for kids, it is enjoyable. And wth Rudy from the Cosby Show, the Dad from Family Ties, and Odo from Deep Space Nine, there's plenty to amuse parents as well.
