Robin Hood: Men in Tights

1993 US comedy film directed by Mel Brooks

Robin Hood: Men in Tights is a 1993 film parody of the story of Robin Hood, particularly parodying Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Other Robin Hood films, such as The Adventures of Robin Hood and Disney's Robin Hood, are also parodied. The film is reminiscent of Brooks's 1975 Robin Hood based sitcom When Things Were Rotten.

Directed by Mel Brooks. Written by Mel Brooks, J.D. Shapiro, and Evan Chandler.

  • Prince John: Tell everyone that when the day is out we shall have a wedding. Or a hanging. Either way, we're gonna [joyfully snaps fingers] have a lot of fun, huh? [everybody cheers]
  • Ahchoo: Let's get out of this ladies clothing and get into our tights!


Robin Hood: Kindly let me pass.
Little John: Uh, no. Sorry, but a toll is a toll, and a roll is a roll, and if we don't get no tolls, then we don't eat no rolls. [proudly] I made that up.
Robin Hood: It's very fascinating. But I'm afraid I'm going to have to hurt you.

Robin Hood: You've just entered the territory of Robin Hood and his Merry Men.
Rabbi Tuckman: [makes a suggestive wave of his hand] Faigelehs?
Robin Hood: No, no, we're straight, just merry.
Rabbi Tuckman: Azoy?

Robin Hood: Blinkin, I'd like you to meet Ahchoo.
Blinkin: A Jew? Here?

Latrine: We changed it in the 9th Century.
Prince John: You changed it to Latrine?
Latrine: Yeah! It used to be Shithouse.
Prince John: It's a good's a good change.

Sheriff of Rottingham: The old man is Loxley.
Prince John: Are you sure? He looks like Mark Twain.
