a bit underwelming quite honestly

While the movie contains all the vulgarity, gore, and mindless raunch depicted in the trailers, Your Highness also displays something seemingly missing from many a film these days, a fun time. I haven't laughed so hard in quite a while. From the sets, to the locations and costumes everything says serious (sorta) fantasy adventure film....then the movie starts.
Oh what a start, Danny McBride shows that he can craft a well written film that leaves the audience both cracking up and being taken away at the same time. I enjoyed the chemistry between the stars on-screen and it really shows how much fun actors can have when they are purposely making a film to simply have a fun time.
There's heart and soul in this movie. The director handles well the fantasy backdrop and that combined with the already mentioned writing, really does succeed in making a laugh-out-loud movie experience that has plenty of fun, action, and a few odd surprises!
Nuff said, Let us quest!

I wanted to like this movie, if only because of Natalie Portman, but it tended to rely on profanity when it really needed more genuine laughs. There were some funny scenes, good special effects, nice costumes, scenery, etc., but it fell flat once the initial use of the F word grew tired and stale. Crude and offensive material can be funny (see Hall Pass) but here it seemed more like a crutch. Maybe they tried to ad lib too much. And don't even ask me about the bit with the Minotaur, just terrible in multiple ways. Overall was better than the dreadful Year One, but will probably be lumped with that movie as examples of recent comedies that forgot to be funny.

Enjoyable, but definately NOT for the underage set - adult content and language. Full of sly naughty fun that would have been just as funny without quite so many f-bombs. Adding profanity doesn't necessarily turn funny into hilarious. I'd give it 3 out of 5 stars - it was worth the trip.

This is a funny movie, but the kids can't be watching this movie. There are tons of sexual overtones, and sexual parts that are shown throughout this movie. The story is ok, but if you are ok with sexual adult humor, then you will love this movie. Danny McBride is hilarious is this movie, and there a few scenes that are just over the top with sexual overtones, but they are funny if you can take it lightly. AGAIN, THIS IS NOT FOR CHILDREN PERIOD!!!!! I did like the film, and suggest anyone to at least check this out on DVD if you haven't seen it yet.
