It didn’t seem to bode well for the movie, when in the first trailer for Your Highness, the centerpiece joke was a guy falling down. The red-band trailer was a huge improvement, but even in that, Natalie Portman’s butt sort of stole the show. You can hardly blame them, she’s an Oscar winner. If I made a movie with Meryl Streep’s bush in it, it wouldn’t matter what it was about, Meryl Streep’s bush would be the selling point. Maybe even the name of my first born. In any case, early word is that Your Highness does indeed have stuff besides Natalie Portman’s butt in it, and 85% of that stuff is cow boners. As Danny McBride recently told Opie and Anthony:
“We have a minotaur hard-on in the film. …And it’s full hard. There is a rape scene with a minotaur and a man. You see the minotaur… get his sh*t going. You apparently can’t show a male hard-on, but since this was a minotaur, we said it was the bull which was getting turned on. Because the bull is the bottom half. You can get away with that if it’s creature hard-ons.”
I’ve admitted this before, but one of my ultimate guilty pleasure movies is Freddy Got Fingered, which probably has a lot to do with seeing it when I was really high. And of course the signature scene in that film is Tom Green holding up an erect horse penis shouting, “Daddy, I’m a farmer!” I guess what I’m trying to say is that if your film has big erect farm animal penises, my only question is where to buy popcorn. Wow, you can practically hear my graduate school professors beaming with pride right now.
