Editors Note
Note PINEAPPLE EXPRESS co-stars Danny McBride and James Franco reunite for director David Gordon Green's fantasy comedy YOUR HIGHNESS, which sends up such beloved '80s gems as KRULL and THE SWORD AND THE SORCERER. Thadeous (McBride) has always stood in the shadow of his older brother, Fabious (Franco), a fearless knight who never met a Minotaur he couldn't slay or a warlord he couldn't defeat. Meanwhile, as Fabious embarked on incredible adventures and returned home to lavish celebrations, Thadeous puffed on wizard's weed, and spent his nights in the company of loose maidens. But Thadeous' life of luxury comes to an abrupt end when powerful wizard Leezar (Justin Theroux) shows up and abducts Fabious' beautiful fiancée, Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel). Now threatened with being cut off from the family fortune by his father, the king (Charles Dance), Thadeous reluctantly agrees to join Fabious on a treacherous quest to rescue the fair maiden, and defeat Leezar once and for all. Their voyage to rescue Belladonna will be marked by incredible adventure and unprecedented danger, but together with the help of a fearless warrior named Isabel (Natalie Portman) the two brothers will battle mythical beasts and villainous knights. Meanwhile, as Isabel carries out a clandestine agenda that could place them all in greater danger than they ever imagined, Thadeous struggles to summon his inner warrior and help his noble brother prevent Leezar from using his powers to usher in a terrifying new age of darkness.
Reviews
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "Where YOUR HIGHNESS scores is in the casting....Franco is fab as the stupidly brave sibling and Theroux outshines them all behind his ghastly prosthetic teeth." 05/01/2011
New York Times "[T]he fun can be infectious....Production designer Mark Tildesley constructs medieval villages, barbaric fighting arenas and deadly mazes that balance the real and the ridiculous quite nicely." 04/08/2011
Sight and Sound "The cast are evidently enjoying themselves: McBride of course in his element....Green directs with wit and pace..." 05/01/2011

ReviewSource Los Angeles Times
Review The director has an easy touch when it comes to comedy, which means you can almost sense those moments when the actors give themselves over to the silliness. Though there are not enough of them, that is where the film is at its best and it usually involves McBride, who turns out to be a good foil for just about anyone opposite him. Portman, despite that shiny new Oscar for the very dark "Black Swan," turns out to be serious fun as the warrior princess driven to avenge the death of her family, with "Your Highness" showing off her comic prospects far better than her recent rom-com foray in "No Strings Attached." Franco gives Fabious such a guileless spirit that his shining fabulousness is hard to resist. And watch for the scene-stealing Rasmus Hardiker as Thadeous' manservant Courtney, the lone voice of reason in this very unreasonable world.
