Personal Quote:

Trivia:

The original title for Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993) was "Robbin' The Hood." Mel Brooks wanted to call it "Robin Hood: The True Story." J.D. didn't like it and came up with the title, Robin Hood: Men in Tights (1993). J.D. convinced Mel Brooks to cast Dave Chappelle in the role of Ahchoo. But could not convince Mel to cast Jim Carrey in the role of The Sheriff of Rotteningham. See more »
