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.

Film Comment Magazine

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.

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

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

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

...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.

Less of a stoner comedy than the title and marketing suggested, but still impressively committed to being as offensive as possible, I found myself appreciating the depths this was willing to plumb.

With the comedy proving uneven, this surprisingly works better as an epic adventure ride than a vulgar farce.

An irreverent romp with knights, swords and daggers fighting with valour for honour, revenge and a damsel in distress - and a horse carriage load of expletives

Danny McBride leads the cast in an immature broad comedy calculated to outrage those nose-wrinklers of a peevish and fastidious disposition.

It's bawdy, profane and rampantly lecherous. It's also very funny ...

Your Highness is a tale of derring-do in the tradition of Sinbad the Sailor, complete with thrilling escapades, high jinks and some pretty exciting action sequences.

Less sword and sorcery than f-word and saucery, this is a frequently funny foul-mouthed fantasy adventure with a gleefully puerile script and strong comic performances from McBride and Franco.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

With McBride and Franco trying on knowingly bad Brit accents and the entire cast clearly having a whale of a time, the impression is of the world's daftest, priciest, least self-serious end-of-the-pier panto.

Your Highness is quite literally a hilarious, sex-obsessed adult fairy tale with a big heart...
