When Friar Tuck and Robin de Courtney are beset by Nottiingham's men in the forest, Tuck is wearing what is unmistakably a watch on his left wrist - one of the most stunning goofs I've ever seen in a movie. As the rest of the scene unfolds, he keeps his left wrist covered, obviously having realized that he had been wearing the watch. In the subsequent scene round the campfire, there is nothing on his left or right wrist. What were the editors thinking. Indeed, what professional actor worth his salt would have erred so stupidly. Lost all interest in the movie from that point on. See more »
A ropey version of the Robin Hood legend replete with stock medieval cliches. It's period acting 101 with fake hearty laughing, thigh slapping, people taking one bite out of a chicken leg before throwing it away, roughly handling serving boys, dodgy wrestling, cringeworthy ballads being sung by the Merry Men and improbable feats of archery (in one scene Robin, with a hood over his head...get it?...manages to fire an arrow into a red ribbon attatched to a pidgeon), and it has to be the only Robin Hood movie with a custard pie fight. But there's great bad dialogue to savour as well: "I'll savour those morsels intended for Sir Roger's table!", "Then we'll build a wall around this forest with thicket and thorn" and "You'll hear a lot more before you swing from a gibbet". This is one to watch with your friends, half drunk, and trying to spot the cliches.
