The only saving grace of this film is the cast, which includes some fantastic actors, slumming it for a paycheck.

This is teenage junk trash rendered lovingly. I see no problem with that. And if I ever kill a minotaur, I know what I'm taking as a trophy.

Your Highness never sacrifices its cheerful, one-thing-after-another absurdity, or its inability to take itself even remotely seriously.

Your Highness hits more than it misses but the effort is substantially lacking, which particularly unexpected considering the gifted people involved.

Quite a comedown and a buzz kill, after "Pineapple Express."

Director David Gordon Green and writers Danny McBride and Ben Best have put together a completely unfunny film filled to the brim with non-stop sexual references and other bits of lowbrow humor.

It's time for Green to make one of the moody, downbeat, haunting indie dramas with which he initially made a name for himself.

If Green wanted to make an awesome fantasy film, he should have, and if he wanted to make a great stoner comedy, well, he already did once.

A surprisingly boring throwback to '80s fantasy, with a disgusting amount of potty humor, violence and foul language tossed in to generate the shallowest of laughs.

There are glimmers of inspired comedy, but rather than explore the genre's stereotypes, the movie constantly falls back on smut.

A spirited and (mostly) funny genre spoof from the same team responsible for Pineapple Express.

Who could have possibly thought any of this is funny?

Green's film is what happens when a talented director and cast indulge almost every one of their silly, sophomoric impulses; though not perfectly streamlined, the results are frequently hilarious all the same.

Just don't expect too much from it and remember to switch off your brain.

McBride, who also created the indelible character of Kenny Powers on HBO's "Eastbound and Down," has most of the good lines and he makes the most of them

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...

In case you miss the joke, McBride helpfully arcs an eyebrow and cocks his head to signal the punchline. And with all the subtlety of Thor, he hammers most of his crude one-liners in the direction of Portman as the vengeful warrior chick Isabel.

...boasts a pervasively absurd atmosphere that's heightened on an all-too-frequent basis by the almost uniformly over-the-top performances.

I love McBride and Franco and will watch them in anything -- it's a bonus that there are corsets and scary labyrinths.
