Robin Hood: Men in Tights
Robin Hood: Men in Tights ★★½ Men in Tights 1993 (PG-13)
Brooksian rendition of the classic legend inspires guffaws, but doesn't hit the bullseye on all it promises. Hood afficionados will appreciate the painstaking effort taken to spoof the 1938 Errol Flynn classic while leaving plenty of room to poke fun at the more recent Costner non-classic “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.” Elwes, last seen swinging swords in “The Princess Bride,” is well cast as the Flynn look-alike. Expect the usual off-color humor that's so prevalent in all Brooks outings. 105m/C VHS, DVD .
