* CrossingTheLineTwice: Nottingham, being performed by Creator/AlanRickman and all, makes such a hammy and snarky performance of every evil action he makes, it's hard to take his atrocities too seriously. He even ''rapes'' Marion with darkly comical pronunciation.

* MisBlamed: A meta-example; the film is rather notorious for the fact that most of the cast, and Kevin Costner in particular, lack a British accent. What we consider a British accent today is a fairly recent innovation, and having characters speak with said accent doesn't make them any more or any less accurate to the time period. If accuracy were that important, the characters really should be speaking either Old or Middle English (the film takes place during the period of transition between the two), which would be largely incomprehensible to a speaker of Modern English. Furthermore, as part of the Anglo-Norman aristocracy, Robin may not have spoken English: Norman French was the language of the English nobility of the time, and in fact Richard himself didn't speak English at all.



* NeverLiveItDown: Creator/KevinCostner still gets ribbed on for playing a ''British'' hero without a proper British accent -- sometimes affectionately, sometimes not. Never mind the fact that a modern British accent would have been no more accurate than an American accent (or that as an Anglo-Saxon noble, Robin may not have spoken English ''at all'').

Added DiffLines:

* NarmCharm: By modern standards, the film is too childish and naive, especially after watching Film/RobinHoodMenInTights, which makes its viewing already narmy.

* HilariousInHindsight: Creator/CareyElwes and Creator/PatrickStewart were among the actors considered for Robin and Richard, respectively. [[Film/RobinHoodMenInTights Two years later...]]

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The movie was a complete success in Spain, and it appears on television at least once a year with pretty good rates. It helped that it got a SuperlativeDubbing which eliminated the weirdness of Costner NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent while keeping Alan Rickman's HamAndCheese intact (although it had a couple of instances of BlindIdiotTranslation).

* CompleteMonster: In this version of [[Myth/RobinHood the legends]], Robin's ArchEnemy, [[BigBad Sheriff George of Nottingham]], is trying to usurp the throne of England from UsefulNotes/RichardTheLionheart. He tries to convince Robin's father to join him, and kills him when he refuses. He then trumps up charges of Devil worship so he can seize Locksley as his own, [[EyeScream has a castellan's eyes put out]] for doubting the charges, and becomes a cruel despot who [[WouldHurtAChild has children killed for hunting on his land]] and sexually exploits women. When Robin first defies the Sheriff, he threatens to CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon. The Sheriff then gives [[TheDragon Guy of Gisborne]] a fortnight to capture Robin Hood, and [[YouHaveFailedMe runs him through with a sword when he fails]]. After that, the Sheriff attacks the Merry Men's village and captures captives, including children, whom he threatens to hang if [[LoveInterest Maid Marian]] doesn't marry him. On their wedding day, the Sheriff decides to hang some of them anyways, starting with a kid, before Robin rescues them all. The Sheriff then [[AttemptedRape tries to force himself on Marian]] as the Bishop is saying the wedding vows.
