Light-Hearted Documentary

My rating is 3.5 stars rounded up. Interesting dialogue on dating in the current decade. Sketches were hit or miss for me personally. Good for a rental

Relevant, Real, and Worth It!

"In Search of the Black Knight" is real, informative and so very funny. It answers so many if not, all of the questions African-American women have regarding why we're having such a hard time finding and keeping a soulmate. This movie is just as relevant and raw as Chris Rock's documentary "Good Hair". "In Search of the Black Knight" is worth every penny.

Fantastic Film from an up and coming young filmmaker!

The right mixture of funny, smart & thoughtful! In Search of the Black Knight is a must own for people of all ethnicities! Yes, the movie focuses heavily on the plight of relationships in the black American community coupled with facts and figures specific to that racial demographic but the overall message is one that unites us all. Love is love!
