Out-and-out dud, underlining how far the mighty have fallen.

Sadly, this will not go down as one of Brooks' classics.

It should be said that this negligible absence of Brooks’s boundary hopping wit and untamed performances doesn’t quite render Men in Tights unwatchable. There’s an appropriate, albeit languid merriment to the proceedings kept alive by a few choice cameos (Dick van Patten, Dom DeLouise, Brooks himself) and a handful of gags that land on their feet.

Men in Tights does work more often than not, even if the jokes are a little cheaper than normal.

A decent-enough inroad to one of film history’s most respected parodists.

Virtually a primer of all the familiar visual and literal jokes in his bag of tricks, the film is a paean to the obvious that is more delight than retread.
