Critics Consensus: Black Knight feels like a lazily constructed movie, filled with lame gags and constant mugging from Lawrence.

Martin Lawrence amuses in raunchy comedy.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has very salty language for a PG-13, including a slightly obscured but very strong four-letter word. In addition to the violence mentioned above (mostly comic and bloodless, but with real injuries and deaths), there's a beheading. There are a number of sexual references and situations, including a discussion of "French" kissing, characters making sounds so that people nearby will think they are having sex, and a man who has sex with a woman because he thinks she is a different woman. Minority and female characters are smart and brave (though not always seen that way by others).
