Consensus: Big budgets and costumes in service of scatalogical jokes may seem funny on paper, but in execution this is a highly monotonous romp that registers only occasional laughs.

Leonard Maltin

In theory, I suppose it would be funny-and incongruous-if in the middle of a serious costume drama a noble action hero uttered a four-letter word. Hearing Danny McBride do just that, repeatedly, in Your Highness not only isn't funny but grows wearisome...

Sword and sorcery movies often resemble parodies of themselves even when they are intended to be taken seriously. And then there are genre spoofs like Your Highness that are meant to be funny and leave you stone-faced.

With McBride and Franco trying on knowingly bad Brit accents and the entire cast clearly having a whale of a time, the impression is of the world's daftest, priciest, least self-serious end-of-the-pier panto.

None of this is very funny, and most of it is pretty ugly - the last half-hour or so is a paroxysm of bad special effects, amputated limbs and a severed sexual organ.

if you like crude vulgar humor and Natalie Portman running around in medieval garb this is a five star movie. It plays for the base humor and is vulgar and you… More

Knights, wizards, trolls and fair maidens. All congregated for your amusement in a fabulous comedy-adventure with quite the lustrous cast. Not the best quest… More

Fun jousting and jesting with the popular sword and sorcery quest motif, with plenty of made for DVD (press "replay topless babes") moments. Bong and… More

I don't know for who this movie was intended. It has a production style that harkens back to the 80s fantasy movies, a cast that people in their 20s and… More

While the trailer was really funny, like so often, it also wasted most of the ammunition. The rest of the film is neither very surprising nor funny but relies… More
