James Franco and Danny McBride play two brothers, Fabious and Thadeus, who goes on a quest to rescue Fabious’s wife from the evil wizard Lazar. They encounter and battle many creatures and monsters along the way, and they even meet a beautiful woman who shares the same goal of killing the evil wizard.
This comedic fantasy adventure is more like the midevil version of Pineapple Express; lots smoking and juvenile antics, but less funny. The comedy feels like it was forced and McBride isn’t as funny in his previous movies. Overall there are moments of hilarity but there wasn’t enough for me.
