Robin Hood Men in Tights Quote: “Leave Us Alone, Mel Brooks!” – Angry Villagers

The last time Shat The Movies took on a Mel Brooks movie, Big D spoiled Roger’s and Gene’s fun with a grumpy wipe score.

Will “Robin Hood: Men in Tights” be a parody redemption, or will Dick Ebert’s “Spaceballs” gloom spread to the rest of the Shat Crew?

In this episode, commissioned by Hot Sauce Steve, we discuss who Mel Brooks jokes are for, the eternal hotness of Cary Elwes, why amazing songs make comedies even better, how many callbacks is too many callbacks, a young Dave Chappelle, a spicy Amy Yasbeck, an incredible Dom DeLuise, and what happened to the “Robin Hood” writing team after “Men in Tights.”

Plot Summary: “Robin Hood Men in Tights” Crusading nobleman Robin of Loxley (Cary Elwes) escapes from prison in Jerusalem and returns home to find that the evil Prince John (Richard Lewis) has confiscated his family estate and is abusing the citizenry. Robin enlists his blind attendant, Blinkin (Mark Blankfield), his friend Will Scarlett O’Hara (Matthew Porretta) and Little John (Eric Allan Kramer) to help regain his home. Robin also hopes to woo the beautiful Maid Marian (Amy Yasbeck), but her chastity belt may prove a challenge.
