Review

Our Score
While it's sad that Mel Brooks has hung up his megaphone, there's a certain sense of merciful release, as his last pictures veered from poor to downright awful. This Sherwood spoof has the occasional flash of vintage Brooks and wonderfully po-faced performances from Cary Elwes as Robin and Amy Yasbeck as Marian. On the down side are Roger Rees's ghastly Sheriff of Rottingham, the untidy structure and the fact that the bawdy gags are more notable for their antiquity than their quality. Watch your Blackadder videos instead.

Summary

The heroic outlaw returns from the Crusades to discover the country is in the grip of evil Prince John and the Sheriff of Rottingham, so he unites a motley band of warriors to overthrow them. Mel Brooks comedy, starring Cary Elwes, Roger Rees, Richard Lewis, Tracey Ullman, Amy Yasbeck, Patrick Stewart, Isaac Hayes and Dom DeLuise.
