This is a romantic comedy with a touch of drama.
The main character sees his way through many trials to become what he deserves to be. This movie will make you laugh, cry, and want to get up and dance all at once. The soundtrack is a must have!!!!
The review of this Movie prepared by Candi

This movie is a work hard type of movie. William (Heath) is following his dreams and beating everyone else while he's doing it, and even trying for love. I liked it a lot, it had just the right amount of comedy and adventure!

Good flick with Heath Ledger as a peasant squire who takes on the role of being a knight fighting in joustling competions throughout Europe and finds himself in love with a princess and fighting a man who has never lost in Sewell.
