Overview

Mel Brooks directed and co-wrote this satiric comedy which lampoons a number of cinematic treatments of the legend of Sherwood Forest, including Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and The Adventures of Robin Hood. Robin Hood Cary Elwes comes home after fighting in the Crusades to learn that the noble King Richard Patrick Stewart is in exile and that the despotic King John Richard Lewis now rules England, with the help of the Sheriff of Rottingham Roger Rees. Robin Hood assembles a band of fellow patriots to do battle with John and the Sheriff, including Asneeze Isaac Hayes and his son Ahchoo Dave Chappelle, the blind watchman Blinkin Mark Blankfield, Will Scarlet O'Hara Matthew Porretta, and Rabbi Tuckman Brooks. The Sheriff is eager to put Robin Hood out of business with the aid of criminal mastermind Don Giovanni Dom DeLuise, but Robin soon has an ally in the royal palace when he falls for the lovely Maid Marian Amy Yasbeck, whose minder Broomhilde Megan Cavanagh has uncooperatively outfitted Marian with a chastity belt. The cast also includes Tracy Ullman, Robert Ridgely, and Clive Revill.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
From poking fun at other movies to lampooning Jewish stereotypes himself, Mel Brooks has pulled out all of his old tricks in Robin Hood: Men in Tights. As usual, word play has a major role in this movie -- the Sheriff of Nottingham becomes the stuttering Sheriff of Rottingham (Roger Rees), and Friar Tuck becomes Rabbi Tuckman (Mel Brooks). No aspect of the Kevin Costner vehicle Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves is left unspoofed in Men in Tights, and some jabs are particularly well-aimed -- Cary Elwes' Robin Hood makes sure to point out that he, unlike Costner's Robin Hood, has an English accent. True to form, Brooks made the mistake of relying too heavily on cultural stereotypes to bring laughs. The rapping Merry Men were at first entertaining, but their appeal quickly wears off and fails to disguise the choppy editing. However, while Brooks has the tendency to repeat his past mistakes, his expertise in making fun comes off equally strong in Men in Tights. Cult fans will be happy.

    FUUUUUUUNNY!

    This movie is HILARIOUS! I don't want to give any of it away, but all I have to say is this: WATCH SHERRIFF OF ROTTINGHAM'S MOLE! (Those of you who have seen this movie already, you know what I'm talking about!). Honestly, this is a great movie and I highly recommend it to anyone who is in need of a good laugh! Even if you are a stubborn old grump who bah-humbugs at everything, I GUARANTEE you will laugh at SOMETHING in this movie. In fact, you should buy TWO! Really. Take my word for it!

    Finally, a Robin Hood who's dashing AND hilarious

    I can't believe I sat down and watched that boring, Shakespeare-type version when I could have been watching this hilarious comedy version of Robin Hood! Cary Elwes was perfect funny, clever, handsome. The whole heroic Prince Charming in one package. Even though it's a bit unrealistic (okay, so half of the movie was too enjoyable to be made by a boring and way-too-original cast), this version brings life into the scenes. I loved the songs and humor. It was also surprisingly believable. No insanely impossible stuff (except for the part where the cart drags Robin's house away you can tell it's just a painted hunk of cardboard) and they've got some serious fighting going on. I didn't however like the girl who played Maid Marian, Amy-what's-her-face. Her voice was high-pitched and way too dramatic for a comedy like this, although maybe they were hoping that would add an extra dose of humor to the story (not needed, it made my little nephew pee in his pants when he saw Little John and Robin's fighting scene). She should've quit and joined the Romeo and Juliet theatre circus where she'd fit in. The rest of the characters looked as fit for their roles as a rabbit in a carrot bin. This will always remain one of my favorite movies of all time!!!

    Unlike Other Robin Hoods He Can Speak With an English Accent!

    Robin Hood Men in Tights may not be Mel Brooks funniest movie but it is still very good and has some great funny moments and Cary Elwes made a superb Robin Hood and unlike other actors who have played the part in other movies at least he can speak with an English accent which can't be said for the actor who played Robin in the Robin Hood movie this movie spoofs!

    You're wrong

    It wasn't the sheriff of rottingham's mole...It was Prince John's mole...another thing to watch out for is the references to the movie, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves...such as the drowning in the river, the sorceress, Latrine, (Played by Tracy Ullman) and Brumhilda, Maid Marion's fellow lady, or Virginity Guardian in this matter.

    more from this reviewer

    "You should listen to me." "Why?" "Because unlike some other Robin Hood's, I can speak with a British accent."

    Boy was this a good movie. Extremely funny and just fun to watch. It is Robin Hood:Prince of Thieves, just way funnier. I mean just watching the preview is funny. Also Cary Elwes is a really good actor. Funny and British. Put those two together with Cary Elwes and bam, you get a really good movie. I would recommend this movie for 13 year olds and over because some of the jokes are a little bit rude. Worth seeing as a family and worth seeing again. It is a MUST watch.
