The original by far. The Disney one was complete crap, imo.

There were actually some pretty good moments in the Disney one, but they were all overshadowed by the awesomely awful miscasting that was Matthew Broderick.

The original all the way. Robert Preston was way better than Matthew Broderick.

He and everyone else in the movie were totally miscast.

I hate remakes anyway.

Hahahaa... he was HORRIBLE. He looked like he couldn't move his head independently of his body- stiff necked. I wasn't so fond of Cheno as Marian either. Mostly because her face and hair were the same color and that bugs the crap out of me. ;)

Oh, agreed...yet another reason I don't understand the Cheno love out there.

However, I did like Victor Garber and Molly Shannon as the Shinns.

I only saw the Disney one and it was because extra credit, and I want to see the original.

My parents prefer the original by far.

Hated Cheno in WWOD version but loved Molly Shannon

The orginal was perfect, my family taped the WWOD version off TV and then ended up just buying the orginal later.
