Without a doubt, this is one of Mel's best films. I know a lot of reviewers have lamented the rap to open, but I really liked it. Who woulda thunk it, rappers in Sherwood Forest? Dave Chappelle rules as Achu (sp?), and Rabbi Tuchman (Brooks himself) and the Merry Men rock too ("Which one means yes?"). Anyway, this is an excellent--and hilarious--film which only Mel Brooks could have thought of.
