The standard story of Robin Hood: Evil Prince John is oppressing the people while good King Richard is away on the Crusades. Robin steals from the tax collectors, wins an archery contest, defeats the Sheriff, and rescues Maid Marian. In this version, however, Mel Brooks adds his own personal touch, parodying traditional adventure films, romance films, and the whole idea of men running around the woods in tights. Written by

When the Sheriff of Rottingham says to Robin when challenging him, ".... so it comes down to this, mano a mano, man to man." Actually, mano a mano means hand-to-hand, not man to man. See more »
The Abbot announced the opening prayer to be in New Latin. Despite the fact that this "language" the Abbot spoke is just gibberish (for obvious comedy reasons), the term for the language "New Latin", also called Renaissance Latin, was introduced in the 14th century, about 200 years after the movie was set.

Cary Elwes have to say puts on a better performance then Costner did in RHPOT but anyhow.
Have to say this film it just makes me laugh so much mainly because the actors seem really into what their doing and you just sit there and thinking 'what the hell are they on' but in a very very very very good way.The random outbursts of songs were brilliant and well and the musical score used I really really liked.Great casting and as said before everyone seemed so into their roles
10/10 from me defiantly
'Because unlike some other Robin Hoods.I can speak with an English accent'
