A comedy that mocks medieval times as much as it can by using dick and fart jokes. From the same director as Pineapple Express, David Gordon Green has made another stupid yet fun and weird film again. The reason the film is likeable is because it doesn’t take itself seriously at all and nor do the actors. You have an Oscar winner in the beautiful Natalie Portman and Mr, i seem to be in everything and everywhere right now, James Franco along with Danny McBride who all seem to be just having a lot of fun and messing around. (if you watch the gag reel you will see what i mean)

Story-wise there isn’t much to go on. Two royal brothers go on a quest to rescue a fair maiden so that James Franco’s character can marry her. But to do so they must defeat the evil wizard Leezar. You do have some laugh out loud moments but really it’s just some well-known actors acting as dumb as they can, having fun and not really caring.

The film is all about fun and possibly set up for a sequel. If you are a fan of boobs, swearing, sword fights, arse kicking, good looking women and very stupid humour then I would watch this. (If you’re not doing anything else)

 

Notible reference to Zooey Deschanel for her very stupid yet sexy performance.

 

Film Fact

Director David Gordon Green said there was never a script used on-set. Only the plot outline and written notes were used and the dialogue is heavily improvised.
