Danny McBride and James Franco star as Thadeous and Fabeous, two princes of royal blood who cannot be more different from one another with their attitude and achievements, with Thadeous being the gross underachiever compared to Fabious' alpha-male tendencies. From his latest quest, Fabeous returns with a bride only for the evil warlock Leezar (Justin Theroux) to come steal her away, so it's up to our merry men and their entourage consisting the likes of jester Julie (Toby Jones) to go on a quest to seek out mythical, perverted sages, retrieve powerful weapons and ally with equally skilled exponents like Isabel (Natalie Portman), the warrior woman who is also on the quest with common objectives.
The reviewer feels that the usage of narration in the whole movie was a splendid move as the usage of narration will help the audience to understand the movie well. But the reviewer feels that using profanity in the dialogue makes "Your Highness" a slapstick festival, where the jokes and unruly incidents in the movie constantly occur.
The reviewer feels that the role of Natalie Portman in the movie to be pleasantly sophisticated and Zooey Deschanel role as James Franco's bride was rather believable with the amount of screen time which she had, while Justin Theroux's role as the villain is convincing as he provides some comic relief with his antics.
Overall, "Your Highness" will be a fun and amusing movie with much filled laughter for adults who understand the type of humour and antics that will be seen in the movie.Cinema Online, 06 July 2011
