Robin Hood – Men in Tights

What took the director so long to get around to Robin Hood? A standard, camp, unapologetic Mel Brooks parody, with digs at Kevin Costner's Prince of Thieves and its multi-racial Merry Men, and an arsenal of throw-away gags. An impressive cast - Stewart, Hayes, Ullman - cannot unfortunately save the day.

'Robin Hood – Men in Tights' is my favourite Mel Brooks movie. You're like, 'Whaaaaaa'?' But you don't understand. I didn't say it was Mel Brooks's BEST movie, I said it was my favourite. It's my favourite because there are so many stupid jokes about English accents, circumcision, sword fighting and men in tights. In fact, there's a whole song about men in tights, and I know every word. Here are some of my favourite quotes: 'I have a mole?' 'It's good to be the king.' 'That happy little bluebird has left a happy little do-do on your hand.' 'Unlike other Robin Hoods, I can speak with an English accent.'
