    Remarkably I have neither checked not voted on this. Vague memories at most and didn't recall anything in advance. Very good, rewatched Prince of Thieves a few months ago and this follows the script closely. Funny, laughs, very good, 7/10 1 year 4 months ago

    Robin Hood: Men in Tights is not one of Mel Brooks' best, but is an enjoyable parody/romp nonetheless, in spirit falling somewhere between The Princess Bride (especially given Cary Elwes' impeccable swashbuckling persona) and Monty Python and the Holy Grail (some absurd bits feel more like vintage Python than Brooks). As I'm not a big fan of jokey anachronisms, those bits left me cold, but Men in Tights made up for it with gags that did make me chuckle, like the omnipresent fourth wall-breaking stuff (this movie really knows it's a movie) and some fine physical humor (the blind gags, the quarterstaff fight). Brooks lets a lot of the humor play out in the background, or doesn't feel the need to press hard on his set-ups - he's too mature a comedian for that - so even a movie that isn't one of his best will stay have good rewatchability. Enjoyable, even if it's largely a fluff piece. 4 years 9 months ago
