When I first saw the trailer for this movie I instantly wanted to see it. It looked like a movie with a lot of potential. Then Your Highness came out in theaters and was not received well, scoring 26% at Rotten Tomatoes. This low score ruined my desire to see the film in the theater and greatly lowered my expectations. Well this is one time I do not remotely agree with the masses. Your Highness is an excellent silly comedy and my wife and I were thoroughly entertained by it. Itâ€™s raunchy and tasteless and I â€œhighlyâ€ recommend it.
The detail present in this transfer is excellent. Textures are crisp and clean, yielding excellent dimension to the image. The only drawback I notices were some high black levels, which had a bit of a blue tone to them and exhibited some crushing.
The sound mix for Your Highness was a pleasant surprise. Surround effects were used well without being a distraction from the wonderful sounding presentation of the movieâ€™s score by Steve Jablonsky.
Deleted Scenes, An excellent Gag Reel, The Making of Your Highness, Perverted Visions outtakes, and Audio Commentary.
