3 Reasons Why A Knight’s Tale Is Still a BAMF Movie

1. Heath Ledger

I never drooled over him, but he does have a nice smile, and he plays the leading man very well. When he waxes poetic about his beloved, it makes me want to crumble. I want her to want him.

2. The Quotes

This movie is so well written. Why don’t people talk about that? The lines are almost all quotable. Here’s a couple of my favs:

You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting.

Your men love you. If I knew nothing else about you, that would be enough.

With hope. Love should end with hope. My husband, God rest him, told me something I’ll never forget. Hope guides me. It is what gets me through the day and especially the night. The hope that after you’re gone from my sight it will not be the last time I look upon you.
3. The Loyalty
Sure, I love the rag-to-riches story, but I love how much integrity William and crew have. He learns to respect the word of a woman, his beloved is strong, his men are loyal and the prince participates in jousting? Everyone just seems like the heart-of-gold type. The move is so damned heart warming.
Also, I like the ponies and the music.
