Richard the Lionheart is back from the Crusades to attend Robin and Marian's wedding - and in a quadruple in-joke, the King Of England is played by Sean Connery: an ex-Robin, Kevin Costner's fellow

, and very, very Scottish.

Connery would have sorted out Alan Rickman in a heartbeat, leaving Costner with little to do but wash his mullet.
