Get high and mighty with Danny McBride, James Franco and Natalie Portman in Your Highness, the epic and hilarious action-comedy from the director of Pineapple Express. Two royal princes—slacker Thadeous (McBride) and the noble Fabious (Franco)—join with an elusive warrior (Portman) on a quest to free a princess from an evil wizard. Along the way, they’ll have to vanquish horrific creatures and traitorous knights in this raunchy trip critics cheer as “gloriously absurd, hilarious & balls out irreverent” (The Playlist/Indiewire).

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Dudes, we get it.
Rotten: This film looks like it was a lot more fun to make than it is to watch.
Rotten: A decent, affectionate, fitfully funny take on the fantasy genre, but this could have been so much more. For fans of this sort of comedy only.
Rotten: It's bad. It makes Mel Brooks's Robin Hood: Men in Tights look like a masterpiece.
Hits the spot!
Don't listen to the neighsayers. This movie is exactly as advertised - ludicrous and raunchy comedy set among a fantasy quest adventure (and Natalie Portman). If you like either of these things, you will love the high-quality production and obvious love for the project that went into making this.
If you are a film critic who loves to condescend, then go away and iron your ascot or something.
If you want to spend a few hours in a fantasy world where you will not only revel in an escape into the impossible, but also laugh your balls off and come out with hilarious quotes you can spout at your non-stuffy friends for weeks... Then this movie is a must. Brilliant.
A big disappointment
I was completely disappointed by this "comedy" as it starred Danny McBride, James Franco, & Natalie Portman. The trailers made me prepared for a hilarious movie, but I didn't get that movie. This is just really stupid and poorly executed. It seems like a movie written by two stoners who think any dick or sh*t jokes are hilarious and that adding F*ck to any sentence make it funny. Well it doesn't so if you aren't a stoner, stay away from this.
However, the only good part of the film is that Natalie Portman is very, very hot in the film and gives a decent performance. If you really want to check it out, this is the only reason to see it.
Funny funny movie
Honestly i thought it was one of the funniest movies I've seen in awhile. I went into the movie expecting a comedy but found an action movie as well. It was a great movie that kept my full attention throughout the film
