Chicago Sun-Times - Unnamed
Kids 6 to 9 years old will probably enjoy this fare, but as a Hollywoodized classic, it doesn't quite wear the crown. [11 Aug 1995, p.41]
Entertainment Weekly - Unnamed
Watered-down versions of once-winning formulas, with recycled charms best suited to snowbound preteens.
TV Guide Magazine - Unnamed
Lame and surprisingly awkward from start to finish.
Washington Post - Hal Hinson
Because of the square, lackluster way that director Michael Gottleib has staged his material, the whole production seems sort of limp and perfunctory.
Variety - Leonard Klady
Run-of-the-mill modern retelling in which a schnooky kid is transported to days of yore to revivify the glory of Camelot. But the juvenilization of the hero turns into an ill-fitting concept that unbalances an already fragile fantasy.

A Kid in King Arthur’s Court (1995)

A Southern California kid named Calvin Fuller is magically transported to the medieval kingdom of Camelot through a crack in the ground caused by an earthquake. Once there, he learns he was summoned by the wizard Merlin, who needs Calvin to save Camelot. Using dazzling modern inventions, can Calvin help King Arthur retain his crown and thwart the evil Lord Belasco?
