|A Knight's Tale with Heath Ledger|
|A Knight's Tale cast promo photo|
This medieval underdog tale is great for everyone of all ages. For the females, we have an adorable young Heath Ledger as the thatcher's son turned makeshift knight. We also have a naked Paul Bettany (carefully filmed of course) as Geoffrey Chaucer for those who like their men long and lean! For the men we have exotic looking Shannyn Sossamon as the noble lady Jocelyn whom William Thatcher/Ulrich von Liechtenstein tries to win. My guys all liked the feisty little blacksmith-lady Kate played by adorable Scotswoman Laura Fraser with her Nike swoosh and her amazing metallurgical know-how! And the kids just love the jousting and the comedy.

Adhemar: You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting. In what world could you possibly beat me?
|James Purefoy as The Black Prince in A Knight's Tale|
Prince Edward: Your men love you. If I knew nothing else about you, that would be enough.

Chaucer: My lords, my ladies, and everybody else here not sitting on a cushion!

Chaucer: And one and two and three and four and your hands should be light like a birdie on a branch. And one and two and three and four and Wat doesn't lead he follows like a girl.
[Wat punches him. Scene changes, and Chaucer now has a tissue stuck up one nostril]
Chaucer: And one and two and twirlie twirlie twirlie! And one and two and you're still getting it wrong! And one and two and three and four you can hit me all day cause you punch like a... what?
Roland: A girl!
Well, hopefully that gave you a laugh or at least you are smirking right now. So again, if you have never seen this one, rent it or better yet buy it (good extras on the DVD) and if you have seen it, you might want to dust this one off from your DVD collection!
P.S. Here is a deleted scene I found on YouTube with Olivia Williams as Chaucer's wife. Cute joke at the end of the scene with Wat and Kate!
