Robin Hood: Men in Tights

Factual error: During the whole movie, we can see wooded mountains around where the movie is taking place, first of all, these don't exist in England and second, during the end shot where we see a view of the entire area, there are no mountains.

Factual error: During the banquet scene, Robin slams the heavy carcass of a wild pig onto the table in front of Prince John. But throughout the fight, when the Sheriff and John are hiding, the carcass of the pig is being moved with the slightest movement as if it's hollow. A real wild pig of that size would not be moved so easily.

Question: When Abbot is walking down the aisle at the wedding, everyone says "Good morrow Abbot", but one guys says "Hey Abbot!" and Abbot says "I hate that guy!" Is this a reference to something? I never got the joke.

Carl Missouri

Chosen answer: The scene is an homage to the late, great comedy team, Abbott and Costello. Bud Abbott was the straight man and Lou Costello was the goofy laugh-getter. Part of their act was Costello getting frustrated trying to understand Abbott and yelling "hey Abbott" at him.
