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.
This spoof has the (very) occasional flash of vintage Mel Brooks and wonderfully po-faced performances from Cary Elwes as Robin and Amy Yasbeck as Marian.
On the downside 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.
