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.

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

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.

Far from the frat-boys-on-a-mission jaunt it should have been, Your Highness proves that a bad fantasy film with swearing and dick jokes is still a bad fantasy film.

It's like early Saturday Night Live without any sense of wit or timing. That's probably all well and good for the group it's meant for, but no one else is going to take much out of it.

It's like going at the dragon with your scimitar but then rolling a 6 and accidentally cutting off your own leg.

Obviously the makers of Your Highness are competing with Zack Snyder in the race to see who can waste money fastest and in the most outrageous manner possible.

A sword-and-sorcery spoof from the Pineapple Express crew that, like that ode to inhaling, isn't nearly as funny as it seems to think it is.

While the chemistry between characters is impressive and the comic delivery spot-on, the jokes feel unoriginal.

Your Highness isn't a serious fantasy epic, but it isn't much of a comedy, either.

People nowadays often do and say things that people in Medieval England did not do and say. Imagine if they had done and said them back then. And repeat.

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

Critic's Notebook

The best way to characterize the film is to call it juvenile, although one has to wonder what juvenile could dream up something this vile and deranged.

If you go along with the silliness in the film and you'll have fun, but Your Highness is still very hit and miss.

What more could you want? Answer: a script!

The screenplay by Danny McBride is so hopeless, he didn't even write himself a good role, and he plays the lead.

Considering the talent involved on both sides of the camera, audiences may be expecting more - a lot more.

It fails so completely at its reach for lowness that you may find yourself crying out for Mel Brooks, Monty Python, hell even Cheech OR Chong to swoop in and save the thing. No such luck.

Your Highness has been compared to such cinematic disasters as Meet The Spartans. It's far better than that but, the sad thing is, it could also have been so much more.

What if you wrote a comedy and nobody laughed?
