Robin Hood: Men in Tights

Robin Hood: Men in Tights

"We're men. We're men in tights. We roam around the forest looking for fights. We're men. We're men in tiiiiiights. We rob from the rich and give to the poor, that's right!"

Robin Hood: Men in Tights isn't here to be fine art, this is no Criterion Collection inductee. It's the simple story you know of the outlaw who robs the rich to feed the poor, except unlike some other Robin Hoods', he can speak with an English accent.

As a fellow English accent speaker, I feel completely qualified to take on Mel Brooks' 1992 Robin Hood parody with as much aplomb as Robin taking on Little John to pass a tiny bridge over 2 cm of water.

I shoot an arrow bullseye into a target with this, as I explain the roots of Robin Hood: Men in Tights from a TV show cancelled in 1975, as well as Michael Jackson's links to the screenplay.

Simply put, I love this movie and it never fails to make me laugh.

Hey Blinkin! Did you say Abe Lincoln?

I would love to hear your thoughts on Robin Hood: Men in Tights!
