Fridge: Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
- Fridge Brilliance: Two actors in this film notoriously were Not Even Bothering with the Accent, Kevin Costner and Christian Slater... and their characters turn out to be half-brothers. Which makes the fact that the parent they both shared was freaking BRIAN BLESSED all the more puzzling.
- Given that the movie takes place during the reign of Richard I, all the characters should be speaking Early Middle English, something of a transitional period between Beowulf and Chaucer. With this in mind the others actors' modern English accents aren't really any more "correct" than Costner and Slater's American ones.
