New Release Movies: Your Highness (2011)


A complete turd.  The end.

No really it is a complete turd.  The fantasy parody genre has been done to death and the majority of the time it's shit.  There are really only 2 good fantasy comedies that are out there.  The Princess Bride and Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  Both are amazing movies and Your Highness is basically pissing all over them.


Shit
So basically this flick is a lighthearted, stoner comedy set in the fantasy genre staring Natalie Portman, James Franco and the unfunny Danny McBride.  Portman and Franco are great actors but they are obviously just going through the motions and wanting to grab their cheques and get out.  Danny McBride is just Danny McBride.  He is the same in everything.  So you either think he is funny or you don't.  I don't.

Shit
Do I need to bother explaining the story?  Not really.  They go on a quest and do shit.  That's about it.  It is predictable to the point that you don't actually want to see what is going to come next because you know it is already more turds.

The story is shit, the effects are shit and the acting is shit.

Shit.

There is not one laugh to be had in this horrible movie.  I have never stopped watching a movie half way through before but I almost did with this.  I hadn't even seen Portman at this stage either.  but alas I stuck to my guns and watched the remaining hour and regretted every minute of it.

Why would I watch some a shit house movie?  I really don't know.  I had hoped that it would be a brainless movie with a few laughs along the way but I didn't laugh once.  2/10.  That is being generous but it did have boobs in it and smoking hot Portman and Deschanel.

Not even this shot could save the film.
I actually feel dumber for watching this movie.  I would not recommend this to anyone unless I wanted them to suffer.  A complete and utter pile of turd.  Just go watch the Princess Bride or The Holy Grail.  Shit even Robin Hood: Men in Tights would be better.
