Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "Thadeous (Danny McBride) is a prince with wasted potential. He spends most of his free time getting high or fooling around with the ladies, while making jokes at his “sidekick” Courtney’s expense. Thadeous does nothing with his talent because people know he’s a fuck up and they see him as one. The prince that gets all the glory is his brother Fabious (James Franco). Fabious returns to the village with a beautiful lady named Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel) who he plans to marry, but Belladonna has been trapped in a castle by the evil Leezar (Justin Theroux) who has important plans for Belladonna, so he snatches her back up and puts her back in the castle. This leads to Fabious starting a quest and lazy brother Thadeous getting tossed along with him."
