Robin Hood: Men in Tights

Critics Consensus

Undisciplined, scatological, profoundly silly, and often utterly groan-worthy, Robin Hood: Men in Tights still has an amiable, anything-goes goofiness that has made it a cult favorite.

Movie Info

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. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Robin Hood: Men in Tights

  • Apr 03, 2018
    From writer/director Mel Brooks comes the outrageous parody film Robin Hood: Men in Tights. Though mainly a riff on Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, there are some nods and allusions to other Robin Hood films as well. There are also spoofs on The Godfather, JFK, Malcolm X, and Home Alone. Starring Cary Elwes, Richard Lewis, Tracey Ullman, and Dave Chappelle, the film has a solid comedic cast. However, it's pretty slapsticky, with a lot of sight gags that are hit and miss. Yet while Robin Hood: Men in Tights delivers some fun laughs, it's one of Mel Brooks' weaker films and not as sharp and witty as his previous works.

    Fucking dreadful. I could only watch a few minutes of it before turning it off. The jokes I saw weren't funny, and were retardedly heavy-handed. I really hope they don't make another one of these at some point.

    I think there are only few out there who would say this Movie is not worth watching. I myself have seen it about 5 times and I can still laugh at some scenes.

    I thought it was pretty funny, Clever in parts but silly and over the top in other parts.
