Your Highness Ouch

The first (I think) professional review for Your Highness has arrived, and The Hollywood Reporter didn’t just dislike it, they hated it. I didn’t expect this type of film would be everyone’s cup of tea but I am quite surprised at just how much it didn’t work for them. I’m sure more positive reviews will be out shortly, as the earlier test screening impressions were mostly very positive, but this is definitely a bad start.

Great screen comedies that feature a severed Minotaur’s penis as a key prop are, sadly, few and far between. Your Highness aspires to such greatness but falls instead into a deep chasm of such comic lowness after less than five minutes that it’s unable to extricate itself. Things get so bad you half expect a cameo by Nicolas Cage.
