Your Highness looks hilarious, but it’s also pretty high-concept for a comedy. I’ve been waiting, expecting, that at some point our comments will be deluged with people complaining about the bad British accents in the trailer, unaware that the awkward style is all part of the joke. That hasn’t happened, and I don’t know if that’s because Your Highness is just that good, or because our readers are a little smarter than the average Danny McBride character. I’d like to think it's a little of both.

Let’s put this phenomenon to the test, with seven Your Highness clips in which you’ll see more hilariously bad British accents and tons of Danny McBride pomposity, but won’t see Natalie Portman’s butt. For that, you’ll have to rewatch the movie’s genius red band trailer.

What’s the verdict? The more I see of it, the more this movie feels like a mix of Monty Python, Krod Mandoon and modern day stoner comedies. McBride’s squire is basically Terry Gilliam’s “Patsy” in Holy Grail, isn’t he? Give that kid some coconuts. Let us know if you’re still excited about Your Highness in the comments section below. I am.
