I wish I could add this to my collection!
13 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've been looking for this for my collection for years. It is one of the funniest films I have ever seen, and well worth the time taken to watch it. Don't expect a usual Robin Hood yarn - it's even crazier than the Disney fox-and-vixen version...

There are plenty of one-liners with 'modern' references (one or two too many American references, though) and brilliant casting (Robert Hardy as King Richard is a classic). I particularly remember Maid Marion's frustration because she promised to remain chaste until marriage and Queen Eleanor's laid-back attitude to life (even chastising her son John because he didn't kill a man until he was in his mid-teens!), but I especially love the part when a group of 'good Jewish boys' 'syncronise their voices' - then count seconds in unison as they infiltrate the dungeon. And the monks singing '99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall' when urged to 'Sing something holy.' And... And... Priceless.

Now put it on DVD so I can own a copy!
