In an era marked by remakes and reboots this film is notable for being perhaps the first of its kind – a stoner fantasy comedy.

Fantasy and mediaeval-set films have had the comic treatment before, most famously with Monty Python and the Holy Grail and The Princess Bride, but neither reached the depraved, lunatic depths of silliness Your Highness wallows in.

The story takes place in the mystical Kingdom of Mourne where a handsome prince (Franco) is on a quest to rescue his bride (Zooey Deschanel) who has been abducted by an evil wizard (Justin­­ Theroux).

Accompanying him are his oafish, underachiever brother (McBride­) and a fierce warrior princess (Portman).

The gags are profane and lowbrow but if that’s what you’re in the mood for it’s hilarious most of the time, and the cast seems to be having a ball with the general ludicrousness of the proceedings.

Bonus: Featurette, deleted scenes, gag reel.
