YMMV / Your Highness

  • Audience-Alienating Premise: It was a medieval comedy about two knights who get stoned. The title also put people off with its drug reference. It had many references to 80's swords and sorcery films that the younger generation didn't get. The bad reviews and trailers that featured the movie's bad English accents and unfunny jokes didn't help either.
  • Bloody Hilarious: The gore is so excessive (and blatantly CGI, through the CGI itself actually looks very impressive) that it's often really funny.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: What's worse than a Minotaur's erect penis? A Minotaur's severed penis being worn as a necklace. And what's worse than that? The Damsel in Distress trying to stick it in her mouth when the hero arrives to save her, because she's been hypnotized in order to rape her.
  • Designated Hero: Thadeous. Other than find the sword and immediately murder an apparently still horny but otherwise pacified Minotaur with it, he does nothing of importance and screws up things a few times. Even his assistant is more skilled than him. Of course, this is part of the joke. He's a big, fat fuck-up who does absolutely nothing of note but we root for him anyways because Fabious comes off as a little annoying.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: When Fabious wants to spend some quality time with his brother Thadeous, who brushes him off with a "no I do not want to be gay with you." Both actors (James Franco and Danny McBride) finally wind up in a much better movie later, but Franco's character doesn't even survive.
  • Spiritual Adaptation: This film is the closest we will likely see to Oglaf getting a live-action adaptation.
  • Took the Bad Film Seriously: This may have been a paycheck gig for Natalie Portman, but her Blood Knight scenes are incredibly funny because she plays the whole thing absolutely straight.
  • WTH, Casting Agency?:
    • James Franco, Natalie Portman and Zooey Deschanel have this trope covered over several demographics. The trailer for the movie even lampshaded this for the former two by mention being an Academy Award nominee and winner respectively.
    • For film nerds, director David Gordon Green, mostly notable for his sensitive award-winning indie dramas, fills this role behind the camera.
