Product Description

Product Description

Mel Brooks wrote and directed this spoof of 'Robin Hood - Prince of Thieves'. Having escaped from prison in North Africa, Robin of Locksley (Cary Elwes) swims back to the mainland to return to his family castle in England. Alongside his cohorts Ahchoo and Asneeze, he attempts to defeat the evil sheriff of Rottingham and find the key to Maid Marion's chastity belt.

From Amazon.co.uk

Can this one-joke spoof possibly be from the same man who gave us The Producers, Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein? Sadly, the answer is yes. Mel Brooks treads water shamelessly with Robin Hood: Men in Tights and the few laughs to be had depend almost entirely on mocking Kevin Costner's earnest blockbuster Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves from two years earlier ("Unlike some other Robin Hoods, I can speak with an English accent", boasts Cary Elwes' Robin). Not only is this far too easy a target for a skit, but the single-film parody concept is stretched way too thin over an entire movie (Brooks elected to repeat the trick with 1995's Dracula: Dead and Loving It). Elwes models his portrayal on Errol Flynn, but only infrequently gets to have fun with the legend: in the climactic sword fight, for example, the shadow play of Flynn and Basil Rathbone's sheriff is affectionately parodied, but such moments are few and far between. Brooks regular Dom DeLuise chips in with a Marlon Brando impersonation, but everyone else is simply taking off characters from the Costner movie: Patrick Stewart even gives us his best Sean Connery impression as a Scottish Richard I. Brooks himself does his stock Jewish act, this time as Rabbi Tuckman; Isaac Hayes has a small cameo in the Morgan Freeman part but seems to think Jerusalem is in Africa; while his on-screen son (David Chappelle) makes the mistake of reminding the audience of what they are missing: "A black sheriff? Why not, it worked in Blazing Saddles". Indeed it did.

On the DVD: Precious few extras here, just a small behind the scenes feature and trailer. But the anamorphic picture looks good. --Mark Walker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It's stupid. It's inane. It's puerile. Of course it is.

Having said that, IT DOESN'T MAKE THIS MOVIE ANY LESS HILARIOUS AND FUN!!! This is my favourite movie ever, because it is so light hearted, and the humor is clever enough to be funny, but not so intellectual that the jokes aren't universal. Considering comedies produced in the current movie industry, this is GOLD. When you compare Men In Tights to garbage like Little Man and Scary Movie 4, you realize that the true humor lies in the actual SCRIPT, not the amount of naked people in the movie at once.

I love this movie because of the comic musical interludes, the much cooler than you'd think Merry Men and Maid Marian's nurse. Amongst many other things, but this movie will always put you in a better mood, and Prince John's moving mole is amazing.

Get the movie, you won't be disappointed!

I love this movie! There are just so many scenes in this that you love, but unlike most movies, you can't wait to hear the jokes or the chorus lines all over again.
Carey Elwes did a fantastic job, as well as the other actors, in making this a fun-
filled spoof, poking fun and what despritly needed to be made fun of. I highly encourage everyone to see this movie, it's a comidy classic that you will want to watch over and over .....And Mr. Mel Brooks, we're all still waiting for the US DVD........

I tell you I can quote this movie! I frequently do. It is such a fab movie and I am a pitiful heap of laughter every time. The only time I can pause for breath from laughing is the odd scene with the Mafia which I guess I just don't get (never have or will watch the Godfather though). 'We're men, manly men, we're men in tights!!!!!'

In the pantheon of spoofs, this always seems to get missed out. And that's a shame, because it's genuinely funny. The humour is a little subtle in places, though in others it will come out and smack you in the chops. And there are quite a few references to other films, either of the same period (like a gentle dig or two at Robin Hood - Prince of Thieves for example) or of the same genre (I'll let you spot them) which always amuse me.

It's a great film and everyone seemed to be having fun making it, which makes it fun to watch.

As inferred by the title of my review - i saw 'Robin Hood: Men in Tights' well before i saw 'robin Hood: Prince of Thieves' to which the film gives much more than a passing nod. In fact it would be over ten years before I would see that film... and in all that time I still thought the film was a great comedic take on the Robin Hood legend, and indeed film history of that particular mythos.
When I eventually got round to seeing RH:PoT however, the film took itself to a new level - i spotted more jokes, and more events which caused me to laugh until i was ready to cry.

Starring Cary Elwes (the Princess Bride, Saw, Hot Shots, Days of Thunder) and Amy Yasbeck (Wings, Problem Child)the story of Robin, returning from the crusades in Jerusalem to find his family home plundered by the Sherriff, we folw him on his quest to regain his lost home, name and lady, Marian.

If you've seen and enjoyed previous Mel Brooks films then this is another one to add to the list of classic comedic parodies from the brains beind Spaceballs and Blazing Saddles. If you haven't then this is a great one to get started with - family friendly, and fun - most kids will be familiar with Robin Hood, and jokes for the grown ups too!

I cannot believe how happy I am to own a copy. It is a brilliant film. A classic. I recommend it to anyone of any age or humor. Though perhaps not those who do not enjoy some crude jokes occasionally. Slapstick to an extent but rivals the likes of Monty Python to an extent.

Looks like Mel Brookes has done it again and reduced yet another legend to less than its basic elements. Not only does this film take any dignity away from the original heroic tale, but it completely takes the mickey out of all of those films that took themselves seriously. With such characters as Will Scarlett O'Hara, and Rabbi Tuckman in it you should know what else to expect. Total nonsense. Very enjoyable. Another rainy day film to raise your spirits.

Ever since the first time I saw this film I loved it, yes it is 'stupid' humour, I currently own it on VHS, which is now slowly beginning to disintergrate from being watched so many times. This truly is one of the greatest comedies I have ever seen, and one of the few that I can watch again and again unlike so many others which after a few times loses its ability to make you laugh, i know every word and it's still funny. If you want a comedy that'll last forever, this is it. One of Mel Brooks' finest films.
