Storyline

Throughout history, tales of chivalry have burnished the legends of brave, handsome knights who rescue fair damsels, slay dragons and conquer evil.

As two princes on a daring mission to save their land, they must rescue the heir apparent's fiancée before their kingdom is destroyed. Thadeous (McBride) has spent his life watching his perfect older brother Fabious (Franco) embark upon valiant journeys and win the hearts of his people. Tired of being passed over for adventure, adoration and the throne, he's settled for a life of wizard's weed, hard booze and easy maidens. But when Fabious' bride-to-be, Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel), gets kidnapped by the evil wizard Leezar (Justin Theroux), the king gives his deadbeat son an ultimatum: Man up and help rescue her or get cut off. Half-assedly embarking upon his first quest, Thadeous joins Fabious to ... Written by Universal Pictures

Quotes

Fabious: [catching Thadeous watching Isabel as she gets undressed to bathe in the pond] What right have you to spy on a bathing woman from these shrubs?
Thadeous: I'm simply keeping an eye on her. She is not like one of our dim witted chamber maids that let me take from behind. This woman has be vexed. What exactly would it take for one to tame such an adventurous slut?
Fabious: Well, I imagine she'd want a man to be honorable, bold, brave. Know his way round a blade.

Completely awful
16 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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.
