This film was panned by non-high critics who don't appreciate the brilliance of a fantasy film centered around a "fuckening" (which will induce the birth of a dragon!) and featuring lines like "First of all, you obviously don't know shit about the prophecy!" David Gordon Green is a great director - from his breakout indie film George Washington and the unforgettable drama Snow Angels to the bong-action comedy Pineapple Express and the irrepressible Eastbound & Down -- and I love his insane range. Your Highness is intentionally stupid in all the right ways, well directed and acted (Justin Theroux is unrecognizable and inspired), and clearly everyone had a blast making it. It is like The Princess Bride got molested by the original Clash of the Titans and Reign of Fire. So if that sounds like a good time to you, you'll give this 4 stars too. If not, then you should probably find your own damn unicorn sword.
