Zany is right. But it's fun, if you're in the right mood—a distinctly silly one. George Segal is a sad-sack Robin Hood. Nobody ever recognizes him for the folk hero he is. "It's Peter Pan!" the people shout. "It's Ivanhoe!" He tries to hijack a coach ("You're going to take us to Havana?" asks the driver) so he can rob from the rich, etc. Unfortunately, he picks the "Peasant Express," a no-frills coach ("no first-run tapestries"). Morgan Fairchild plays the wonderfully oversexed Maid Marian ("I'm a 24-year-old virgin...It's awful!"). And Roddy McDowall is evil Prince John, a neurotic monarch with a shrink ("If torturing people makes you feel good, then do it!"). Very silly indeed.
