'Robin Hood' Crowe's accent debacle. Solved?
Borrowed this from my parents (who frustrate me by still buying DVD despite having a BD player).
I have a theory. He has his broad regional accent when he's regular Robin Longstride, but when he has to pass himself off as Robert Loxley he has to adopt Loxley's accent. I mean, who's gonna believe he's made his way back from the holy land and picked up an Irish accent on the way?
Is this not the case? I know they don't flat out say "You don't sound like Loxley, you'd better drop your accent".
Have I not watched it closely enough? I think the accent swap coincides with the role-play as Loxley, but didn't enjoy it enough to warrant another viewing to support my tEDITEDy.[:D]
Feel free to pick my theory to shreds.
