Black Knight

Rated 1.0 An employee at an inner-city amusement park (Martin Lawrence) is magically transported back to the 14th century, where he meets a “Nubian” lady in waiting (Marsha Thomason) and runs afoul of a villainous knight (Vincent Regan). There are three writers credited (Darryl Quarles, Peter Gaulke, Gerry Swallow) and believe me, none of them are Mark Twain. Director Gil Junger’s theory of the art of film seems to be to switch on the camera, turn Lawrence loose and retire to his trailer for a couple of beers. The movie is slovenly and careless, and it looks like it was financed with money panhandled on Hollywood Boulevard in a couple of afternoons, but fans who can’t get enough of Martin Lawrence will find all their hearts could desire.
