How ... why ... who ... what...?

What just happened there?

Why am I laughing?

What, in the vernacular, the (...ahem) "heavens" was that?

Your Highness is wrong on so many levels. It ought to be a disaster. For reasons I can't fathom, it isn't. It is absurd, gratuitous, vulgar, childish, stupid and utterly incongruous. And I thought it was great.

Natalie Portman playing against Danny McBride: what kind of fevered imagination comes up with that sort of an idea? What sort of miracle worker makes it actually happen? What sort of genius makes it work?

And that's just the start: There are jarring conflicts everywhere you look. Animal husbandry: You may cross a horse with a donkey and get a mule, but some hybrids just don't go: You don't play a Black Swan against Kenny Powers. You don't cross The Princess Bride with Animal House. If you do, you sure as hell don't throw in Bad Taste for good measure. You don't blow millions on Industrial Light & Magic style digital effects one moment and then fill the screen with a cheap rubber alien wizard (a dope-smoking, kiddie-fiddling alien wizard at that) that looks like it came from a joke shop the next.

W.T.F. Why the hell are there so many bad reviews in here about this movie? This movie was hilarious! Think about it; Natalie Portman, a Minotaur raping a skinny little guy, a character created just so they can say "dick-less" servant, and a forest full of naked hotties are just a few elements of this film that make this a very good movie! If you had high hopes for this movie, then you're just not thinking right. That like grabbing a glass of 7-up and expecting water when you take a drink. I'm just saying.

Seriously though. Take it as it is. A fresh swing at a stoner type comedy. It isn't a re-make of any other movies, unlike a lot of the other movies on the shelves right now. You don't have to be high or drunk to enjoy it, although I'm sure it might enhance it. If this isn't your cup of tea, then chalk up your rental fee as a loss and STFU. As for the rest of us that liked it, I'm going to wait a couple months and watch it again and laugh my ass off...again. Btw, If Natalie Portman is reading this. "hi"

There is absolutely nothing of redeeming social value in this raunchy 2011 fantasy comedy, but there are some absurdly funny bits here and there to make it mildly infectious at times. Directed by David Gordon Green, who started in indie films (the acclaimed "George Washington") but last helmed the stoner farce Pineapple Express, the film relies heavily on scatological banter, lowbrow sight gags, and over-the-top CGI effects to punctuate the sophomoric screenplay by star Danny McBride and Ben Best. McBride stars as Prince Thadeous, the cowardly brother of the heroic Prince Fabious, who is about to marry the wide-eyed virgin Belladonna when lo and behold, the villainous wizard Leezar kidnaps her and traps her in a tower like Rapunzel.

Of course, that's the cue for Fabious to take Thadeous and his manservant Courtney to search for her with the aid of a band of knights who soon betray him. Although this is a medieval story with the appropriate sets and costumes, not much of the script is played to period. For the most part, the movie feels like a tribute to the likes of Mel Brooks, Cheech & Chong, and Monty Python and the Holy Grail, with the garrulous McBride conveying his character's oversized bravado with tongue firmly in cheek. Meanwhile, James Franco plays Fabious with his slightly askew, surfer-dude manner intact, while Zooey Deschanel plays Belladonna with only a modicum of her usually ironic delivery. As Leezar, Justin Theroux has a field day with the wizard's grandiose manner and lascivious intensity.

This movie reminds me of an online rpg; sword and sorcery setting (provided by the developers) mixed with very creative vulgarity (provided by a lot of the players). The attention to detail in the script and sets is extremely refreshing. I should think people with an uninhibited sense of humor will be laughing from start to finish. There are perhaps dozens of instant-classic lines and moments.
Those who don't like the idea of over-the-top adult themes mixed with their dungeons and dragons should steer well clear, because that's what this film offers in spades.
