Pineapple Express co-stars Danny McBride and James Franco reunite for director David Gordon Green's fantasy comedy Your Highness, which sends up such beloved '80s gems as Krull and The Sword and the Sorcerer. Thadeous (McBride) has always stood in the shadow of his older brother, Fabious (Franco), a fearless knight who never met a Minotaur he couldn't slay or a warlord he couldn't defeat. Meanwhile, as Fabious embarked on incredible adventures and returned home to lavish celebrations, Thadeous puffed on wizard's weed, and spent his nights in the company of loose maidens. But Thadeous' life of luxury comes to an abrupt end when powerful wizard Leezar (Justin Theroux) shows up and abducts Fabious' beautiful fiancée, Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel). Now threatened with being cut off from the family fortune by his father, the king (Charles Dance), Thadeous reluctantly agrees to join Fabious on a treacherous quest to rescue the fair maiden, and defeat Leezar once and for all. Their voyage to rescue Belladonna will be marked by incredible adventure and unprecedented danger, but together with the help of a fearless warrior named Isabel (Natalie Portman) the two brothers will battle mythical beasts and villainous knights. Meanwhile, as Isabel carries out a clandestine agenda that could place them all in greater danger than they ever imagined, Thadeous struggles to summon his inner warrior and help his noble brother prevent Leezar from using his powers to usher in a terrifying new age of darkness.~Jason Buchanan
Damn You Gods: The making of Your Highness
Feature commentary with video intro by director David Gordon Green, executive producer/co-writer/star Danny McBride and stars James Franco & Justin Theroux
This was better than I expected. Very entertaining even though it is somewhat stupid with a weak plot. It's just plain over the top silly and fun. Don't look for any deep meanings or thought provoking scenes in this one. Just silly fun, outrageous actions and over the top dialog.
I would recommend this to a friend

hilarious snl comedy sketch like film
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
this movie is DEFINITELY not for everyone, but if you love crazy films like Pineapple Express and This Is The End, then you should give Your Highness a watch.
From an interview I read Danny McBride origibally wanted james franco to be a minor character but the studios said no, maybe it derailed their original plans the world may never know, just like most of his work though if you're not in the right mood it might not work out.
This movie didn’t get the greatest reviews, but if you are a fan of Danny McBride and James Franco, you’ll love this movie. Hilarious!

Not for everyone.
I thought this movie was pretty hilarious. The humor is very grotesque and it has a lot of marijuana references, but you should know that coming from the same guys who did Pineapple Express. Great for just watching at home with a beer and some snacks. Not for kids.
This was honestly one of the best movies ive seen in a long time! It was absolutely hilarious! A couple friends and me went to go see this in theaters and could not stop laughing! It was so good! A little random and all but if youre looking for something funny! This is definitely it! Danny McBride is a genius! So funny! Plus Natalie Portman is in it and mmmm mmmm mmmm! Shes gorgeous!
