What to know

critics consensus

Undisciplined, scatological, profoundly silly, and often utterly groan-worthy, Robin Hood: Men in Tights still has an amiable, anything-goes goofiness that has made it a cult favorite. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Robin Hood: Men in Tights

  • Jan 06, 2021
    Of Mel Brooks' catalogue, this may be his best. Spaceballs and History of the World Part 1 hold nostalgic appeal to me, but this one is arguably his most complete movie. A lot of the humor is, admittedly, pretty dated by todays standards, but not as much as you might think. A couple homophobic jokes perhaps but nothing outlandish, and some sex jokes (in particular a running gag with a chastity belt) that really aren't as funny as Mel seems to think they are, but nothing that outright ruins the experience. The movie is, at its core, commited to a friendly level of silliness that I can absolutely appreciate. The best part has to be Cary Elwes's approach to it all though. He could easily have played this role in a more straightforward Robin Hood film, and he basically is playing this role like a more straightforward Robin Hood film, which makes it all that funnier. He's charming and sarcastic about the absurdity surrounding him. It's a fun, lighthearted, just goofy time and a loving send up of an age old tale.

    From writer/director Mel Brooks comes the outrageous parody film Robin Hood: Men in Tights. Though mainly a riff on Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, there are some nods and allusions to other Robin Hood films as well. There are also spoofs on The Godfather, JFK, Malcolm X, and Home Alone. Starring Cary Elwes, Richard Lewis, Tracey Ullman, and Dave Chappelle, the film has a solid comedic cast. However, it's pretty slapsticky, with a lot of sight gags that are hit and miss. Yet while Robin Hood: Men in Tights delivers some fun laughs, it's one of Mel Brooks' weaker films and not as sharp and witty as his previous works.

    Fucking dreadful. I could only watch a few minutes of it before turning it off. The jokes I saw weren't funny, and were retardedly heavy-handed. I really hope they don't make another one of these at some point.

    I think there are only few out there who would say this Movie is not worth watching. I myself have seen it about 5 times and I can still laugh at some scenes.
