I have had a great time watching this with my children. Anyone whos a child at heart and loves watching sword play, outstanding physicl comedy and loves a romantic love story that wont require fast forwarding will easily fall in love with The Court Jester.
I waited YEARS for this to finally be reissued! One of the funniest movies I've ever seen. Loved it on Sunday Afternoon Movies as a kid, and it's lost none of the joy and laughter now that I'm "old". Lol. If you've ever heard someone say, "The pellet with the poison's in the vessel with a pestle, and the chalice from the Palace has the brew that is true." THIS is where it started - and it's absolutely hysterical to watch Giacomo and Griswold each try to remember the famous tongue twister. Watch!
If you can watch this movie without cracking up, then you need therapy. This movie is a comedy classic that the whole family can enjoy! Witty humor, brilliant swordplay, and catchy songs, it's yet to be beaten!
