Throughout history, tales of chivalry have burnished the legends of brave, handsome knights who rescue fair damsels, slay dragons and conquer evil. But behind many a hero is a good-for-nothing younger brother trying just to stay out of the way of those dragons, evil and trouble in general. 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.

Only a champion man would hold the Blade of Unicorn in his hands. And I, Thadeous, am that man. I have seen the pain in my reflection and watched the strength of my brother, unflinching.

This movie was incredibly crude, immature, and stupid. However, it was also funny at times. I didn't find it nearly as bad as the critics, but I'm not quite ready to proclaim it a future cult classic. If you're easily offended, this is definitely the wrong movie for you. It's highly offensive, with a constant stream of vulgarities and crude sexual humor. Interestingly, there's some pretty good special effects, sets, and award-winning actors. It's like someone decided to give millions of dollars to a bunch of stoners to make their masterpiece. The resulting movie is no masterpiece, but it's certainly better than the critics made it out to be. If you're the kind of person who will laugh at anything no matter how stupid it is, you'll probably like this movie. If you have actual standards and demand that movies be tactful and intelligent, you'll probably hate it.
