Throughout history, tales of chivalry have burnished the legends of brave, handsome knights who rescue fair damsels, slay dragons and conquer evil. But behind many a hero is a good-for-nothing younger brother trying just to stay out of the way of those dragons, evil and trouble in general. As two princes on a daring mission to save their land, they must rescue the heir apparent's fiancée before their kingdom is destroyed. Thadeous (McBride) has spent his life watching his perfect older brother Fabious (Franco) embark upon valiant journeys and win the hearts of his people. Tired of being passed over for adventure, adoration and the throne, he's settled for a life of wizard's weed, hard booze and easy maidens. But when Fabious' bride-to-be, Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel), gets kidnapped by the evil wizard Leezar (Justin Theroux), the king gives his deadbeat son an ultimatum: Man up and help rescue her or get cut off…

Did You Know?
James Franco took sword training for nine months before and during filming.
What's your problem? Why are you being such a sourpuss?
I'm not being a sourpuss! I just didn't want to be at that celebration
All I want is for you to be a part of this moment. I want you to be gay with me and father.
I don't want to be gay with you two!
This movie rocks!! Those critics are idiots!
Your Highness is a goofy movie from the Pineapple Express guys. My
husband and I loved this movie, we didn't stop laughing, and neither
did anyone else in the theater. Danny McBride is hilarious. James
Franco and Zooey Deschanel have an infectious sweetness that makes you
want to run home and proclaim your undying love! Natalie Portman gave
an amazing performance as always and it was nice to see her in a
comedic role. Of course Your Highness is no Black Swan, but if you're
looking for a good laid back, feel good movie to keep you rolling, this
is the one for you, I have NO idea why this movie is being bashed, it
must be from people with no sense of humor or spirit of fun! Go see it
today,you won't regret it!!!
