Your Highness

Synopsis: Throughout history, tales of chivalry have burnished the legends of brave, handsome knights who rescue fair damsels, slay dragons and conquer evil. But behind many a hero is a good-for-nothing younger brother trying just to stay out of the way of those dragons, evil and trouble in general. As two princes on a daring mission to save their land, they must rescue the heir apparent's fiancée before their kingdom is destroyed. Thadeous (McBride) has spent his life watching his perfect older brother Fabious (Franco) embark upon valiant journeys and win the hearts of his people. Tired of being passed over for adventure, adoration and the throne, he's settled for a life of wizard's weed, hard booze and easy maidens. But when Fabious' bride-to-be, Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel), gets kidnapped by the evil wizard Leezar (Justin Theroux), the king gives his deadbeat son an ultimatum: Man up and help rescue her or get cut off. Half-assedly embarking upon his first quest, Thadeous joins Fabious to tr

Prepare thyself for one twisted tale.

Through the chapters of time,

legends have been told

of brave knights, evil warlocks,

beautiful maidens, magical prophecies,

and other serious sh*t.

Be not afraid.

This is your destiny.

You will bear my seed,

giving birth to a new beast,

a new age:

An age where I will command mankind

in fear!

To arms!

At ease, Maiden.

When the light of the world flickers,

we, the Golden Order of Knights,

restore the rule of good.

You're safe now.

Then let us pray

that 100 years from now

when these two moons meet again,

there will be a hero

as brave as you, my lord.

A hero as brave.

Oh, f*** me.

Prince Thadeous of Mourne,

you are hereby sentenced to death

by hanging

for your illicit behavior

with the noble Dwarf King's

second wife Regina.

You're a disgrace to any kingdom!

I say hang the bastard.

Get on with it!

And your minstrel, Courtney,

is to be tarred and feathered

for unlawful association with a deviant.

Children, I'm allergic,

please. Let's not.

Please! These allegations,

they're being greatly exaggerated.

It was more or less just heavy petting

with a brief moment of penetration.


He deserves to die! Kill him!

Hang the bastard!

Hey! Easy! That's not nice.

You, bloodthirsty little f***er!

Show me some respect, I'm a prince!

To the bowels of hell!

Good night, Prince.

Oh, dear gods.

Your Highness, what are you doing?

I'm escaping, Courtney!

Quit playing with those children

and help me!

Kill him!

Get him! After him!

Your Highness, wait for me!

Why are they upset?

All dwarf queens are unfaithful.

Hurry, Courtney, back to the kingdom!

Forgive us with your tiny hearts!

Faster sheepies, faster!

Please wait, sir!

Courtney, you've proven

yourself useless yet again.

Who's that?

We're safe and we're stoned.


They're gaining on us.

Oh, the dragon!

Those Highland Dwarves have got weapons!

Coming through.


Watch out, Courtney!

I'm telling father we should go

to war with these double-crossers.


Livestock! Courtney,

this is no time to be napping.

I'm a chicken.

Let's get back... Oh, look!

Mmm. A little feast to

break up this pursuit.

Dangerous, yet delicious.

I'm jumping out this window.

He's angry!

Courtney, break my fall with your body.

Ow! Please don't hurt my bottom!

Run, Courtney! Pick up the pace!

Why do people so little run so fast?

That was close.

Courtney, I've had enough

of this nonsense!

Crack-a-lacka, you little varmint.

They're devils, sir! They're devils!

- Get him!

- They're muscular.

- Get off me!

- That's it, sir!

Your Highness!


Please tell me

that you completed your simple task

and secured the treaty

signed by the Lord of the Dwarf Village.

Father, they sent a beautiful woman

to distract me and I was defenseless.

Don't bandy words with me, Thadeous.

Your brother is to return

from his quest at any moment.

Please go and bathe yourself.

Why must I bow to greet him?

No one does anything special for me

when I do extraordinary things.

And what extraordinary things

have you done of late?

Do tell me. Enlighten me.

Courtney, what extraordinary things

have I done?

You took a bubble bath, ate some toast,

had a sleep for one hour,

and commissioned a naked statue

of your fine self.

God, if your mother could see you now.

Hear ye! Hear ye!

Oh, dear gods.

It is with blossoming personal joy

that I announce the return

of the mighty,

the magnificent, the merciful,

Prince Fabious!

Hey, Prince Fabious, we adore you!

Welcome home, Prince Fabious.

You're my king, Prince Fabious.
