Overview

Screenwriter Darryl Quarles follows up his smash hit Big Momma's House 2000 with another raucous Martin Lawrence collaboration. Lawrence stars as Jamal Walker, an employee at a medieval-themed mini-golf course who wakes up in 14th century England after a blow to the head. Jamal has soon allied himself with a peasant girl and a broken-down ex-knight to defeat the evil King Leo Kevin Conway and his bullying minion, Sir Knolte Tom Wilkinson. In the meantime, Jamal busts some modern dance moves on the medieval dance floor and encounters such intriguing residents of the period as knaves, peasants, archers, jousting knights, maidens, a princess, and even a giant. Black Knight 2001 is the sophomore directing vehicle of longtime television producer Gil Junger, who joins Lawrence in replacing the team originally attached to this comic vehicle, director F. Gary Gray and star Chris Tucker.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
A dispiriting trend from the late '90s has seen countless films chart the interplay of a sassy fast-talker and his polar opposites, and Black Knight is about as good, as bad, and certainly as obvious as these movies get. Those who saw the trailer probably even guessed the inevitable title before it hit the screen at the trailer's end. Eras and cultures have clashed so often on film that the lines practically write themselves, and what screenwriter Darryl Quarles adds to this one is Martin Lawrence's specific speech flourishes and trademark put-downs, which have traditionally brought in audiences. Still, the 33 million dollars it did make was pretty short of a king's ransom, suggesting that casting Lawrence is not by itself enough to guarantee a hit. Setting aside knee-jerk critical snobbishness, Black Knight accomplishes its goals in the most basic sense, in all of the most basic ways. In fact, it's so single-minded that it mostly dispenses with the usual opening scenes in modern times before Lawrence plunges into a theme park moat, which zaps him from South Central Los Angeles to 1326 England. Viewers won't care so much for an explanation of that, or why the screenplay never comments on his apparent time travel. If anything, they'll scratch their heads more about why the great Tom Wilkinson signed on to the project. But this film was not made for nit-pickers, and Lawrence's core audience should be happy enough.
