Very happy to have found this site, as someone here might have the answer to a question that has been bothering me for years. It would be great to find out whether this film was real or just a dream!
I remember seeing a movie when I was very young that may have been released exclusively for TV, probably sometime in the 1990s or even early 2000s. A family was visiting a museum, and a bolt of lightning struck one of the paintings, turning it into a portal. One of the museum visitors was instantly transported into the painting, and one of the subjects in the painting was sent into our world in exchange. The painting was a medieval scene. I recall one of the characters in the film as a bumbling knight, and in the family visiting the museum, there was at least one daughter and a father. They had to wait for another bolt of lightning to return their family member to the real world.
That is all I remember of the movie. It has been rather frustrating, as I do not recall the explanation they gave for the painting becoming a portal, or what became of the family.
Thank you in advance! Any suggestions are appreciated.
