* 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).

** Actually, Robin is popularly portrayed as a Saxon noble, Saxons being the more indigenous people of England at the time, so there's a good chance he DID speak English.

* 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.

* 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 nearly ''rapes'' Marian with darkly comical pronunciation.

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

* 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'').
