Just a few days before a lavish multimedia press junket for "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," one of the film's stars, Alan Rickman, wasn't altogether certain that all the hoopla was really necessary. Not that Rickman, who plays the Sheriff of Nottingham, has some sort of aversion to on-the-road hyping for his pictures. Indeed, at the moment he voiced his ambivalence, he was sitting in a Seattle hotel room, ready to present a film-festival premiere of "Truly, Madly, Deeply."

And the movie is a bit over its head too--entertaining as audiences seem to find it.
