And don't forget Daffy Duck as Robin: Herald film critic Robert Horton says Ridley Scott's “Robin Hood,” starring Russell Crowe is a “mostly serious approach” with “historical heft.” Somehow, Horton resists the temptation to stand this “Hood” up against Kevin Costner's 1991 “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves."

Well, if Horton won't, we will. The earlier “Robin Hood” fails on three counts: the Bryan Adams theme song, Costner's Midwest accent and his mullet haircut.
