Your Highness

Rated R 102 minutes 2011

David Gordon Green, director of the hilarious Pineapple Express, delivers this hugely disappointing medieval comedy dud. Danny McBride (who wrote the screenplay) stars as the naughty son of a king (Charles Dance) who lives in the shadow of his heroic older brother (James Franco). When the older brother’s bride-to-be is kidnapped by an evil wizard (Justin Theroux), the two must go on a quest to rescue her. The film wants to evoke Monty Python, but instead seems like the very worst of Mel Brooks. Only Theroux manages to get consistent laughs, although Franco does well as the straight man. While some jokes get a few giggles, many of them fall flat or feel ripped off. (You know you are in trouble when you are ripping off a joke from Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto.) Natalie Portman shows up and is given little to do. This is a dud that breaks my heart.
