English language remake of the popular French comedy 'Les Visiteurs'. When 12th century nobleman Thibault (Jean Réno) accidentally drinks a drugged potion and is driven to kill his beloved Princess Rosalind (Christina Applegate), his servant Andre (Christian Clavier) gets a wizard to cast a spell that will send them back in time, thus enabling them to avert the tragedy. However, the spell backfires, and Andre and Thibault are in fact propelled forward in time, ending up in 21st century Chicago. How will these two luckless inhabitants of the middle ages manage to survive in a modern day big city? And, more to the point, will Thibault ever see his beloved Rosalind again?

The basic premise is a good one, although it has been done many times before. a medieaval knight and his servant are somehow sent forward in time to the present day, and nearly all the film's gags centre round these to medieaval misfits and their interpretation of 21st century life, along with all our modern inventions. It is genuinely funny. For instance the scenes with the toilet mints (wait and see!) and the attempt to free those 'held prisoner' inside the television really work, and have to be seen to believed, and laughed at.
The acting and casting is good, in particular the gorgeous Tara Reid, who looks especially stunning in this movie, along with Christina Applegate, who also looks pretty good.
I must admit i don't normally like this kind of films because the humour is so obvious and in-your-face, but it is how children like it. I really would recommend this flim to all parents, as your child will want to watch it over and over again. My little brother certainly did. There are the inevitable bodily function jokes, which always cracks him and all other young children up. But credit where credit's due, i didn't expect to, but i really did enjoy this film, and can quite happily watch this film again and again.
Valérie Lemercier is particularly charming as the royal relation Frénégonde de Pouille / Béatrice de Montmirail, with all the ludicrous and zany characteristics we all expect. Jean Reno and Christian Clavier fit and expand their roles in a warm and authentic way.
Indeed the absence of Valérie Lemercier adds to the challenges facing the cast and crew of 'Le Visiteurs 2' and the later 'Just Visiting'.
Despite some misgivings 'Just Visiting' is a useful introduction to its bigger brother 'Le Visiteurs (1). Some of the nuances and comic moments based upon word-play will escape non-French speakers who depend upon subtitles, but there is still plenty in the film, and its two sequels, to enjoy.
A simple storyline but a good one, Reno's expressions are superb, lots of zany action.

Whilst being a Jean Reno fan and expecting the comedy premise to be funny, I found it mildly amusing only. Perhaps the French version is better? Either way, save your money folks.Published 1 month ago by Steve Wishart
This was an incredibly hilarious movie. I don't know who wrote the script but he is a master! We could not stop watching and/or laughing for the entire time. Read morePublished 3 months ago by F. Sidney
This made me laugh all the way through and although it's a very similar story to the French version there are different people in it and it was thoroughly enjoyable.Published 14 months ago by old horse
Immensely entertaining French satire on modern manners. Jean Reno steals the show (as ever) with a wild-eyed honesty that has made him a star across the globe. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Dan Smith
