*** However, in the extended cut of the film, there is a scene where Mortianna advises him to seek aid "from those who share our god." It should also be noted that said Christian priest is a willing stooge of the Sheriff, albeit more out of cowardice than conviction. Make of it what you will.

->''"I've seen knights in armour panic at the first hymns of battle. And I've seen the loneliest unarmed squire pull a spear from his own body, to defend a dying horse. Nobility is not a birthright; it's defined by one's actions."''

** Hence, Creator/MelBrooks did the famous TakeThat when in ''[[Film/RobinHoodMenInTights Men in Tights]]'', his Robin comments "Because, unlike some other Robin Hoods, I can speak with a British accent". Then again, the language used in England in the 12th century was nothing like what we call British today (Received Pronunciation/Standard English being recent developments). It wasn't even English, but Anglo-Norman French.

* ViewersAreMorons: As the {{Misblamed}} and NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent entries can attest, the jokes about this movie, and Creator/KevinCostner by extension, not sporting British accents are so common that they're [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny not even funny anymore]], especially for people who know from the get-go that a modern British accent is no better than Costner's American one.
