This is a great French historical farce, in reverse, as the setting is modern day France. The cast is marvellous, not least the now well-known Jean Reno. The time-travelling knight, and his simple servant, are transported into the future, where modern innovations, such as cars, flush toilets, and willing females, provide the plot, and the many laughs. I really chuckled at this film at the time, not easy for someone who can 'resist' most comedy films. Think a bit of 'Monty Python', add a smidgeon of 'Bill and Ted', then mix with better acting, a witty script, and French flair, and you will have some idea how good this is. Part two was thrown in for good measure, due to the unexpected success of the first film. Not in the same league, unfortunately.
