    Anyone else looking forward to this film? Danny McBride is hilarious imo and it has Natalie Portman in a thong...so I can't think of a reason not to be excited to see it! I'm not going to post any trailers because I dunno if Natalie's thong is against the TOS, and the trailer where they digitally gave her a more covering garment is a crime against humanity. There is a new red band trailer that hit the net today that I can't recommend enough(read more thong shots).

    I very much approve of Natalie sans clothes on all occasions, but I'm not sure about these trailers. I like the idea, but making swearing funny is an art form...which they don't seem to have grasped. Simply saying 'COCK' a lot isn't automatically funny unless you are fifteen.

    Worst thing though are the AWFUL English accents. Makes me want to throw things at the TV they're so bad. Couldn't they have hired some funny ENGLISH actors? Or at least a US comic performer who can get beyond Dick Van Dyke?

    It's not on youtube. Every movie site I have seen it on has the same MSN video embed. You can check it out at AICN or screenrant and probably any other major movie news site.

    But that's my point - it's not all down to WHAT he says but HOW and WHEN. The word 'cock' is not inherently funny by itself. Neither does the word 'fuck' necessarily get funnier the more you repeat it. Timing is everything.

    If you want a masterclass for a torrent of swearing then South Park the Movie is just about perfect.

    This film looks like it's trying WAY too hard.

    I remember awhile back someone posted a trailer for this, and it got a few good laughs out of me. So it looks like it could be pretty funny.

    I also like comedies like this in where it's kind of spoofing the premise,(In this case fantasy) but it's also playing it completely straight faced. Kind of like what Venture Bros does.

    I'd agree, but at the same time it's always hard to judge the comedic timing of a film from just the trailer, because trailers are always so cut and paste.

    Who knows, this could very well suck. But it still looks better then any of the Scary Movie type spoof comedies.

    Honestly? I think the movie is probably gonna bomb.

    I just wonder why is it just about every time an actress wins for best actress, her next movie is usually terrible.

    The minute I saw Natalie's butt cheeks in the first trailer I KNEW she was a Transformers fan! It all makes sense now...She formed a plan in her youth...she acquired large amounts of cash being a celebrity...she acquired large amounts of knowledge by getting a great education....and now after the birth of her first child she will turn those considerable assets into the development of actual Transformers! I bow to our new Portformer overlords.

    Watched this last night. Fucking bloody hilarious. Met with the director, McBride and Justin Theroux. They said that the influence for this movie were the 80's sword and sandal movies. They showed Sword and Sorcerer and Krull too. But Highness was a great fucking movie. Funny as shit.

    WHO IS IT THEN

    Oh, saw the trailer of this a while back. Not sure what to think of it yet. But with so many comedies playing in current times lately, the medieval setting is a breath of fresh air. I might have said something incredibly silly and uninformed, I dunno.

    BRING IT
