I'll Make This Simple....It's FUNNY!
13 February 2013 | by (Phx. Arizona ("Arizona Smells Funny"!- Homer Simpson)) – See all my reviews

I had the great luck to see this on late night TV in December of 2005 and all I can say is,it made me laugh at everything that was supposed to be funny.

George Segal,first of all is funny as the most unlikely Robin Hood in movie history.

He was far funnier and this movie was also,than Mel Brooks's "Robin Hood : Men In Tights",which tried too hard to be funny. As well as the fact that Mr. Brooks style of comedy was on the wane in the 1990s.

I wont go into scene details but everything was played to the hilt here or played with simpler humor as well. I highly recommend that if you have a VHS player,seek this out. If it one day is on DVD,buy it! I know I will.

In conclusion,bravo to George and his cast! A great job of farce and just plain crazy comedy. (END)
