Too little too late for Mel Brooks. His lampooning of the Robin Hood legend isn't a patch on earlier work like Blazing Saddles and History of the World Part One, it's also not particularly funny.

Despite the fact that there wasn't really a workable satire of Robin Hood and all the attendant potential for comedy (men wearing tights, the friar, etc) until this film was made, the jokes all feel old and lazy.
