Your Highness Reviews
Overall it was as expected. I just wish these movie comics would quit mistaking "shocking" for comedy.
I yer in da mood for all silly(ish) flick to put on for your idiot guests while you handle business, this will suffice.
Portman is just as committed to her role as any she's ever played, lifting everyone around her as a result. Franco just adds a bit of Pineapple Express's Saul to his Tristan, which works fine. Justin Theroux overacts constantly, but that's obviously the point, so it's not a problem. Jones, Dance, Hardiker and Lewis are all great. Zooey D is not particularly tested, but does OK as the damsel in distress. The romantic duet sung by her (beautifully) and Franco (terribly) is one of the film's more memorable scenes.
While a lot of the jokes just aren't as funny as they could have been, the overall tone and look of the film stopped me from being completely turned off. It's definitely disappointing, but I can't hate it. A noble effort, one might say.
You are a funny actor, but here are some tips on comedy writing.
The F-Word is not a punchline. A penis is not a joke.
Keep that in mind if you want to try writing again.
