A Knight's Tale (2001)

He Will Rock You

William Thather, a knight's peasant apprentice, gets a chance at glory when the knight dies suddenly mid-tournament. Posing as a knight himself, William won't stop until he's crowned tournament champion—assuming matters of the heart don't get in the way.

Great watch, will watch again, and do recommend.
What a fantastic cast: I honestly don't know if you could have cast it better. Just thinking about Alan Tudyk, Heath Ledger, and Shannyn Sossamon makes me smile.
Everyone plays their roles fantasticly, taking their stock characters, and spinning the writing to the 9th degree: the jerks are hate-able jerks and I can't help but love the leads and supporting characters.
Part of what makes this movie disctinct is that they forces some modern (for the time) music into it when it very did not belong with medieval England / Europe. There are several scenes where if you squint, you could mistake the movie for "10 Things I Hate About You" or some other teen rom com of that time period.
Fortunately they found a way to balance the jousting content with personality stories, which are by far more entertaining, but unless you're Kevin Smith, you can't exactly cut jousting out of a movie set in competitions for jousting.
This is a fun movie with some positive messaging in it about women and class rights, please give this a go.
