For some reason I thought of the Men in Tights song from the movie Robin Hood Men in Tights Movie. I remember watching this movie when I was a kid with my family and my Dad used to love it. It was always one of the movies that my family would love to watch together and we’d always laugh. I used to get most of the jokes, but I didn’t understand why they were funny.
In the scene where Robin is with Maid Marianne and they are walking through the woods, I never understood why everyone would laugh when they were singing to each other and all of the “Merry Men” were sitting in front of a screen like it was a movie. I got that Robin’s sword was like a penis and he was getting excited, but I didn’t actually understand the joke or the rest of the scene. Now that I’ve seen it as an adult I finally got all of the jokes. It’s kind of funny how parents and kids can watch a movie and everyone gets the jokes, but they actually mean two different things. Then when you watch the movie again when you’re an adult it all of the sudden makes sense and you can enjoy it even more. I’m still kind of surprised watching Robin Hood Men in Tights as an adult that my parents let me watch the movie, but at the same time it is an awesome movie and the Men in Tights song is actually still really funny.
One thing that I love about these movies is that there are always awesome showtunes in them. Men in Tights is one of them. It almost reminds me of something you would expect to see or hear in the show Spamalot. You have a ton of men making fun of the story line of Robin Hood and how they wore tights as well as creating a parody of other shows and things in the story as well. The movie is awesome and one that I love. The song Men in Tights from the movie version of Robin Hood Men in Tights is an awesome showtune that can easily get stuck in your head. Be careful watching it because you may end up singing it for the rest of the day. The movie is awesome and it is also a perfect showtune for you to play on your Halloween playlist.
