Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"We're men--we're men in tights
We roam around the forest looking for fights
We're men--we're men in tights
We rob from the rich and give to the poor, that's right!"
- Merry Men Singers (Steve Lively, Randy Crenshaw, Kerry Katz, Geoff Koch, Rick Logan)
"Unlike some other Robin Hoods, I can speak with an English accent!"
- Robin Hood (Cary Elwes)
New York Times - 07/28/1993
"...It's good to have [Brooks] back on screen....Elwes swashbuckles with conviction..."
Variety - 08/02/1993
"...Brooks remains a talent....There is tremendous glee to be derived from the spontaneity of his outrageous antics..."
In this spoof of Robin Hood movies (and his own comedies), writer-director Mel Brooks goes for laughs in his usual way and off-color humor abounds.

Theatrical Release |
- Theatrical release: July 28, 1993.
- Cary Elwes made his childhood acting debut at 5 years old as a servant to the Sheriff of Nottingham in a school production of ROBIN HOOD. In inadvertent preparation for his later role, he deliberately tripped in order to create some humor.
- Director Brooks also helped create the short-lived 1970s television series WHEN THINGS WERE ROTTEN, spoofing the same subject.
