Trivia

The ruined castle at the end of the film is Corfe castle in Dorset, England. The castle at Corfe was mixed with other footage for the internal scene at type end of the film, as there are no low walls or views at that angle of fields. See more »

Goofs

During the chase scene, the police say the suspects are heading for "State and Michigan." In Chicago, State St and Michigan Ave are parallel and thus there is no intersection of State and Michigan. See more »

Very funny trip to the future by a royal ancestor
11 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

You have to watch this one at least twice or more. Some of the humor will escape you the first time. Some of it is almost slapstick, but it gives a very humorous view of some of the culture clashes and learning experiences that could occur if an ancestor from very far back were to accidentally be transferred to our modern times. It is actually very entertaining, and I would highly recommend it. Even children over the age of 10 or so might enjoy it (it mostly pretty unoffensive, but a little gross in some parts), but some of the humor might go over the heads of younger ones (that might actually be good, however).
