A slacker prince is forced to join his braver brother on a quest to rescue his brother's fiancee.
" The chief problem with Your Highness is its lack of imagination -- its misuse and overuse of language and visual riffs that are only marginally amusing at best. "
" Dudes, we get it. "
" The screenplay by Danny McBride is so hopeless, he didn't even write himself a good role, and he plays the lead. "
" Franco truly saves the day. His hilarious deadpan in the midst of utter insanity turns a bawdy goof into a most welcome lark indeed. "
" With McBride and Franco trying on knowingly bad Brit accents and the entire cast clearly having a whale of a time, the impression is of the world's daftest, priciest, least self-serious end-of-the-pier panto. "
" Lots of balls. Also lots of penis jokes. But too loud and obvious. "
" An inventory of the preoccupations of 13-year-old boys. "
" It is a pox on comedy. "
" Considering the talent involved on both sides of the camera, audiences may be expecting more - a lot more. "
" When somebody says, "The quest sucks," I was inclined to agree. "
" While the chemistry between characters is impressive and the comic delivery spot-on, the jokes feel unoriginal. "
" By and large, "Your Highness" is a Cheech and Chong movie in period drag, so it's no wonder it goes up in smoke. "
" This movie is so sophomoric, it makes Pineapple Express, and even Harold and Kumar, look like sophisticated wit. "
" [Green] has an easy touch when it comes to comedy, which means you can almost sense those moments when the actors give themselves over to the silliness. "
" The whole thing plays like one of those supposedly hilarious ideas hatched on a late night - though generally, in the light of day, such ideas are quickly abandoned. "
" Sword and sorcery movies often resemble parodies of themselves even when they are intended to be taken seriously. And then there are genre spoofs like Your Highness that are meant to be funny and leave you stone-faced. "
" A radioactive turd disguised as a sword-and-sorcery comedy. "
" None of this is very funny, and most of it is pretty ugly - the last half-hour or so is a paroxysm of bad special effects, amputated limbs and a severed sexual organ. "
" This film looks like it was a lot more fun to make than it is to watch. "
" Basically, the script, from the title on down, feels like something sketched out on rolling papers. "
