BEST. QUEST. EVER.
When a virgin that his dashing brother (James Franco) is about to marry is kidnapped by a sorcerer, slacker Thadeous (Danny McBride) joins the quest to save her. A fantasy comedy from the Pineapple Express (2008) director who reunites with both Franco and McBride. The movie is wrapped in silliness; some of it is worth a snicker or two, but most of the drug and sex jokes are too childish and ineffective. Natalie Portman is fun to watch as a deadly warrior; McBride was slammed for his laidback performance, but I think it fits his character.
