Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Cary Elwes is far more dashing and jubilant than either Kevin Costner or Russell Crowe, and he seems born for the role, rather than shoehorned into it."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Grade B Mel Brooks has some zany moments."
‑ Steve Crum,
"There are many funnier things in the world. Like the flu, for example."
‑ Widgett Walls,
"This painfully unfunny spoof rivals Dracula: Dead and Loving It as Brooks' worst film."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
"This is one of the best musicals of the 1990s and one of Brooks' very best"
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"Indicates that Mel Brooks may have lost it."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"It is true, the legend had it coming, but this bad?"
‑ James Brundage,
"A few good moments in this typically undercooked Brooks opus."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
