Let's make it clear that i hate movies with sex jokes and full of bad language,etc. From the trailer i knew the movie had them in but i didn't expect to be so many. 9 to 10 lines are naughty jokes about sex, penis, vagina and whatever else exist.
There is a great storyline and it could have made a great epic adventure. To tell the truth i was expecting something like Knight's Tale ( i haven't watched any of the other movies from those writers/director like Pineapple Express). But all the story was hidden behind those jokes which i didn't even find funny enough to laugh. I almost got sad about it. The cinematography, the music, the special effects are so great! So well done that i had time to see that kind of budget in an epic quest movie. And i couldn't get into it. When i didn't find the dialogues stupid, i noticed how poor job was done from such great actors.
James Franco was trying to keep his smiles in, because he wanted to laugh with the jokes and stuff and you could see it. Which i can't say i found it cute and funny like i've seen in other reviews.
The movie is not bad. It can easily get a 6-7+/10 from someone who will like it. But for certain it's not for everyone. There are chances to keep up and watch the whole thing since it has an interesting story, but you might find annoying things i mentioned above if it's not your style. For me was a waste of time, money and a great cast.
