* 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.

* 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).

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* 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.

* BaseBreaker: Over the All-American Creator/KevinCostner not even trying to do a British accent for the title role.

* DracoInLeatherPants[=/=]EvilIsSexy: The Sheriff of Nottingham gets this treatment, with many female fans finding him more attractive than the hero. It probably helps that Creator/AlanRickman's performance is played to such hammy perfection that he steals pretty much every scene he appears in.
