Your Highness Synopsis
Throughout history, tales of chivalry have burnished the legends of brave, handsome knights who rescue fair damsels, slay dragons and conquer evil. But behind many a hero is a good-for-nothing younger brother trying just to stay out of the way of those dragons, evil and trouble in general. Danny McBride and James Franco team up for an epic comedy adventure set in a fantastical world- Your Highness. As two princes on a daring mission to save their land, they must rescue the heir apparent's fiancée before their kingdom is destroyed.

Thadeous (McBride) has spent his life watching his perfect older brother Fabious (Franco) embark upon valiant journeys and win the hearts of his people. Tired of being passed over for adventure, adoration and the throne, he's settled for a life of wizard's weed, hard booze and easy maidens. But when Fabious' bride-to-be, Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel), gets kidnapped by the evil wizard Leezar (Justin Theroux), the king gives his deadbeat son an ultimatum: Man up and help rescue her or get cut off.

Half-assedly embarking upon his first quest, Thadeous joins Fabious to trek across the perilous outlands and free the princess. Joined by Isabel (Natalie Portman)--an elusive warrior with a dangerous agenda of her own--the brothers must vanquish horrific creatures and traitorous knights before they can reach Belladonna. If Thadeous can find his inner hero, he can help his brother prevent the destruction of his land. Stay a slacker, and not only does he die a coward, he gets front row seats to the dawn of an all-new Dark Ages.

The 10 Most Disappointing Movies Of 2011 The 10 Most Disappointing Movies Of 2011
There were plenty of movies from this year that I absolutely loved and others that I absolutely hated, but there’s a very special category that exists between both of those ends: the ones that left me utterly disappointed. While I always enter a movie theater hoping to love the hell out of whatever I’m watching, the truth is that there are some films that I spend a lot of time thinking about and anticipating, only to be left frustrated at the end....

Even though Your Highness bombed at the box office, it is still getting a pretty substantial DVD and Blu-Ray to make up costs.

The sequence is one of the highlights of the film and definitely worth a watch. ...

New Red Band Trailer For Your Highness Continues To Make The Film Look Hysterical New Red Band Trailer For Your Highness Continues To Make The Film Look Hysterical
While the green band trailer for David Gordon Green's Your Highness was certainly hilarious, it still didn't work nearly as well as the earlier released red band trailer. After all, this is a movie that is going to make great use of the word "fuck" in all of its iterations and likely have quite a bit of nudity and violence, so why not let the movie show off its true colors in its marketing?...
