  1. I will say that Robin Hood is a huge blind spot in my viewership. However, Men in Tights is a great, if flawed take on the legend.

      I agree. There are a lot of people who have seen Men in Tights without having seen the 1938 Errol Flynn classic, so they’re missing half the jokes. Men in Tights is based in about equal measure on that one and on Prince of Thieves.
