Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in A Knight’s Tale...

Overall: B-
A poor peasant boy dreams of becoming a knight and a champion jouster. Through the sacrifice of his father and a coincidental opportunity, the boy makes his wishes a reality. Warm moments of family love and a good example of facing your problems through determination and hard work provide positive examples. However, parents may be concerned with the appearance of a naked man (see details below), use of deception, or the premise of jousting in general.

Violence: C
As the topic of the movie focuses on the Medieval sport of jousting, there are many scenes depicting this activity. However, while many knights are bashed off their horses, there is little blood and no explicit visual scenes, and the knights appear well protected in their armor. Other violence: A man is pronounced dead while others complain about his stench. Background image of a corpse hanging from a noose, while another body is hung in a cage. Men battle with large knives in a competition. Man is punched. A man administers four punches to another man who is bound and incapable of defending himself.

Sexual Content: C-
A naked man is seen from the side and rear (without revealing his genitals) in five different shots during the movie, however the nudity is without any sexual references or implications. A man makes mention of a woman’s breasts. A man makes a vague sexual remark about a woman uncrossing her legs. A woman wearing a slightly transparent white dress enters a man’s tent, lays on top of the bed with the man under the covers and they begin kissing as the scene fades to black.

Language: C
At least: 5 moderate profanities, 6 mild profanities, and 6 terms of Deity used as profanities or expletives.

Alcohol / Drug Use: B-
Some scenes take place in medieval pubs where people are drinking.
