The Schwartz is strong with Mel Brooks’ Star Wars spoof starring Rick Moranis, John Candy, Bill Pullman, Daphne Zuniga and Brooks himself.
Cary Elwes makes for a fine Robin of Loxley (complete with real British accent) in Mel Brooks’ not-bad spoof of the Merry Men legend.
Evil Prince John is oppressing the people while good King Richard is away on the Crusades. Robin steals from the tax collectors, wins an archery contest, defeats the Sheriff, and rescues Maid Marian. In this spoof version by, however, Mel Brooks adds his own personal touch, parodying traditional adventure films, romance films and the whole idea of men running around the woods in tights.
From the dawn of man to the distant future, mankind’s evolution (or lack thereof) is traced. Often ridiculous but never serious, we learn the truth behind the Roman Emperor, we learn what really happened at the Last Supper, the circumstances that surrounded the French Revolution, how to test eunuchs, and what kind of shoes the Spanish Inquisitor wore.
