Like me, you may have totally missed this gem when it came out in 2001. It is just plain funny without vulgarity or cheap sex jokes. Mr. Reno does a great job of a person trying to retain a 12th century mindset while confronted with 21st century "culture." He reminds us that people in the 12th century were not stupid, just, well, in the 12th century!
His aid (a serf) is very slapstick, and you will crack-up over the scenes involving the "magic blue fountain" and forest fresh mints! Christina Applegate does well with deadpan humor. There is a subtle, almost wistful undertone surrounding past times when men were honorable and brave, despite the totally outrageous plot. The very few vulgarities are often delivered with French accents and there are no sex scenes, so I suggest this is one the whole family can enjoy.
