Movie Review: YOUR HIGHNESS [ma+15]

Updated on June 6, 2011

STARRING: Danny McBride, James Franco, Natalie Portman & Zooey Deschanel

If you've always wanted to see a movie that features a minitars bo*er, than look no further,YOUR HIGHNESS has arrived. A mash-up of fantasy and comedy thats equal parts brilliant and predictable, the film comes from the team that bought us PINEAPPLE EXPRESS. Director David Gordon Green reunites Danny McBride and James Franco starring as a pair of princes' who must rescue Franco's fiancee. She's been kiddnapped by Justin Theroux's evil wizard who's planning a magical right involving the girl called "The F**kening", let's just leave it at that shall we? Natalie Portman plays a warrior chick who joins the princes' on the road. Unfortunately for her its the already famous thong scene thats her most memorable moment in the film, but really satisfying to see her in a much less serious role than she is used to playing. As McBride and Franco quest they encounter woodnimps, snake-headed beast and an over-baked wizard, who has a thing for little boys. The visual effects behind these fantasy moments are more impressive than you might expect and its clear that the film makers love the genre and their chance to plan it.

YOUR HIGHNESS is not without problems however, the humour is one note, some scenes are overly long and the plot is thinner than Portmans thong. Also those viewers who arent into Danny McBride might have trouble understanding this kind of unique comedy and some actors like Zooey Deschanel are terribly under-utilisied. Funny vulgarity is a perfect way to describe this film with d**k and fart jokes plentiful, and its safe to say it's geared to a pretty specific demographic. Please do not take your young children to this movie as you will defiantly set them on a path you probably don't want them to take, also teenagers do not take your parents to see it either as they will walk out in the opening credits and you may have to walk home.

4/5
