* PurelyAestheticEra

* PurelyAestheticEraPurelyAestheticEra: A story set in the 14th century, but with ''1970s rock music''. WordOfGod claims that the music is a kind of audible TranslationConvention. Authentic 14th century music would just sound odd to modern audiences, so updating the music to modern-day stuff allows the audience to understand what the music means to the characters. This decision makes a bit more sense when you realize that the "traditional" alternative, a classical soundtrack, is just as anachronistic as a rock one.

Pretty standard, then. Except... oh yeah, it's set in [[TheLateMiddleAges 14th-century England]]. [[TheTourney The sport is jousting]]. The struggling underdog is a peasant [[FakeAristocrat posing as a noble knight]]. The big boss is Prince Edward of Wales, aka the Black Prince.

* InformedAttractiveness: Jocelyn. The amount of praise over her looks is extremely over the top, particularly since she wears a lot of bizarre and unflattering outfits and hairstyles. Not helping matters is that other female characters, despite being just as, if not more, attractive, receive no attention or remarks. Granted she is a noblewoman, while they are a maid and blacksmith respectively, but some find it CharacterShilling.
** This is very much YMMV.

* {{Jerkass}}: Adhemar, upon first meeting William, immediately insults him several times and he just gets worse from there. They seem to have even gone out of their way to make him completely utterly dislikeable.

* VillainRespect: While he spends the whole movie against Will, Adhemar has to admit that Will has done well in the joust, and in their first joust he remarks, "No style whatsoever... neither has an anvil." I.e., that Will's technique might not be the best, but he can deliver and take hits as well as anyone.

Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The word "shite" is uncensored in most TV airings, which is unusual since it's the English equivalent of "shit".
