As two princes on a daring mission to save their land, they must rescue the heir apparent's fiancée before their kingdom is destroyed.

I could find nothing I liked in this film. It was not funny or interesting and at best, I was bored.
The cast should be ashamed of themselves, there are some good actors here who are surely above this.
Too often when films rely on improvised dialogue the result is an incoherent showcase of actors having a whale of a time while the audience are left alienated and disappointed at being left out of the joke and Your Highness is one of the worst offenders. I'm sure they had a great time making the film, but that doesn't make for an enjoyable viewing experience.
Though, having said that, this film would still have been awful with a script.
