Director David Gordon Green had mixed the genres like comedy and action in his previous film Pineapple Express and was successful in winning the heart of movie buffs. Following the trend, he has done another movie called Your Highness, which has also equal share for both lewd up comedy and blood-drenched action. But in Pineapple Express, the jokes match with the story and the characters are likable. Whereas in Your Highness, there is not much to like about the characters.
Your Highness is an epic- comedy adventure set in a fantasy world. The story of the movie is quite messy and lacks comprehensive narrative. The story revolves around two princes, who set out on a daring mission to rescue the heir apparent's fiance before their kingdom is destroyed. The one-liners are hilarious in the first half of the film, but in the second half, many situations are annoying and predictable.
Danny McBride and Ben Best have penned script for Your Highness, which obviously has some funny moments. But many comedy scenes look like childish humor, which will not have long-lasting power. In many scenes, the jokes seem to be lazy and laughter arises from the adolescent punchline or a tweak on old English and the sheer absurdity of the characters
