David Gordon Green
It’s a shame when a movie, like Your Highness, has such a great cast (minus McBride) that is unable to perform due to such a terrible script. Basking in the success of Pineapple Express, director David Gordon Green is back trying to rework the stoner comedy, but this time with a D + D twist. McBride plays a bumbling prince sent on a quest to rescue his brother’s fiancé from an evil wizard, while also trying to seduce a mysterious female assassin, played by Portman. While the film does have a few funny moments, the humour is generally cheap and lacking the wit that was found in Pineapple Express, ending up being a stoned gamers perverted fantasy. You’re better off just watching the trailer as it has all the funny parts in and it will save you one hundred minutes of terrible acting and unforgivable dialogue.
