Are you familiar with the movie “Pineapple Express”? It’s a 2008’s comedy by David Gordon Green about two stoners that witness a murder (in short). And it’s fun as hell. The movie stars Seth Rogen, James Franco and Danny McBride. Oh, you don’t know the last one? Well, he is the disgusting “fat” guy nobody likes. And he has a funny part in this movie as the neverdying sidekick. So, why am I talking about “Pineapple Express” when the title says “Your Highness”?
It’s the follow-up movie by David Gordon Green, starring James Franco, Natalie Portman, and Danny McBride. But this time, McBride also wrot the script (note: He didn’t in “Pineapple Express”). Keep that in mind please.
The story is about two royal brothers in a medievil fantasy-kingdom. Franco plays Fabious, the kindgom’s hero and heir to the throne. McBride plays his younger brother Thaddeus, a lazy stupid fuck who does nothing but banging chicks. So one day, Fabious’ fiancè gets kidnapped by the evil sorcerer Leezar, who also wants to bang her in order to rule the world (this plot sounds both familiar AND stupid) To bring her back, Fabious and Thaddeus team up and go on a quest. On their journes they meet Natalie Portman. A pre-pregnancy Natalie Portman…
But they don’t seem to get along well. But Fabious is kidnapped, so Thaddeus has to team up with Nat, kills a minotaur and cuts his dick off as trophy. Then he rescues his brother, who saves the kingdom/ world/ fiancè/ whogivesashit.
In the end, he and Nat take off to hunt down an evil witch in order to free Nat from her chestaty belt…
As you may read by my summary, this movie is awful, and I mean really really awful. None of the actors acts really good (and keep in mind: we have got an academy award winner, an adademy award nominee, and Zooey Deschanel in the cast)
The script is bad, and the dialogue is disgusting: Every second joke is about cox, dicks, gays and pedophiles. That IS the movie.
McBride is a disgusting person, who would take any possibility to harress a beautyful woman. As is hisrole, our main hero. Normally, a main hero does undergo a personal journey, which alters him in the end. But nothing happes to Thaddeus, he is still the same at the end.
My advice: stay away from it as far asyou can. This movie is nit wotrth the time spending it
