This is probably the widest released movie that he has every been considered the star of. This will really make or break him as a selling point for these types of comedies. It is very obvious that he has a certain style of acting and I'm hoping Your Highness will prove that he has an audience that wants to watch him do his thing! I for one LOVE Danny McBride, I think he's one of the funniest actors out there and I hope to see him headline more films like this, but I hope that those future films are better. Your Highness isn't a bad movie at all, it's actually very funny, but it isn't quite on par with the directors last film, Pineapple Express."
