The funniest movie I've seen in years. (by nicknim)
Jean Reno at his Gallic best, although anything with him in it is worth a look. Some scenes are distinctly Python-esque. Excellent entertainment, suitable and appealing to all ages. This version of the movie was made after the original French language version was a hit in France - it's also worth watching after this version providing you don't mind English subtitles, or understand French .
Great movie! (by sshepherd-2)
We loved this movie. Totally hilarious. Loved how the characters react to 21st century life style and brought with them their hilarious habits and way of life from the past. This movie is a must see!! We rented it and watched it five times in five days. Highly recommended for a great laugh! Andre is very funny and it is great to see him realize that he can be a free man and finally stand up for himself. It helps us realize how inhumane the treatment of "slaves" were in ancient history. Helps us realize how much we take for granted in the 21st century too. This movie is like a mix <more>
between Monty Python's Quest for the Holy Grail and Napoleon Dynamite, at least that is what type of satirical humor it reminds me of and I think both of those movies are absolutely hilarious as well, the kind that you like to watch again and again and find yourself quoting over and over and laughing. It was a great movie!!
Best movie I've seen in a long time (by cmdrkapok)
I don't care what these movie snobs say, this movie was HILARIOUS. There were some cheesy scenes, but I can't remember the last time that I laughed so hard at a movie. Who cares if it's a remake? The lead actor is great, he has a remarkable deadpan, and the entire movie is believable once you get past the time travel .Anyone who complains about dumb Americans needing English remakes, well, get over it. We didn't want to see some weird French actress' pit hair. Have a steak and stop whining. By the way, this is my first post, and I registered with IMDb solely to praise <more>
Very funny trip to the future by a royal ancestor (by jepowell)
You have to watch this one at least twice or more. Some of the humor will escape you the first time. Some of it is almost slapstick, but it gives a very humorous view of some of the culture clashes and learning experiences that could occur if an ancestor from very far back were to accidentally be transferred to our modern times. It is actually very entertaining, and I would highly recommend it. Even children over the age of 10 or so might enjoy it it mostly pretty unoffensive, but a little gross in some parts , but some of the humor might go over the heads of younger ones that might <more>
One of the funniest of the offbeat, little advertised movies I enjoy the most. Underrated and under appreciated by American audiences, slowly making its way to cult status, this tale of a French nobleman and time travel, at the hands of a slightly daffy sorcerer, played by Malcolm McDowell takes place mostly in Chicago. A twist on the "I am my own Grandfather" theme brings the nobleman face to face with distant Granddaughter, who he saves from a decision she would have lived to regret. This is a remake of the French film, "Les Visiteurs". Jean Reno shows his talent for <more>
comedy and wit. Thankfully he and Christian Clavier teamed up for the remake. Clavier was allowed to develop a little in the American version. The rest of the cast are enjoyable, and bring together a tight, clean story. Worth the video rental. Good clean fun.
it's so hilarious we watch it once a week (by kinardsharon)
This movie is just plain hilarious. My boyfriend and I bought this one ASAP after renting it from the library, and we are quoting it constantly. Cheese, very good cheese! Hello, Big Nose! ALL the forest is in the small wheel! Thank you, Master! Sure, the plot is outlandish, but Reno and Clavier do an amazing job of conveying what it would be like to be transported from the 12th to the 21st century. The actors are great, the story is great, there's no sex, no violence, only one curse word, and what I found to be only two very short, slightly lame moments in an endless parade of fun. I <more>
can't wait to watch it with my teenage nieces. I described it to them, and they're already laughing. The french version was fun, too, but hearing the actors speak English in their wacky french accents makes it that much more fun.
This movie doesn't get enough credit. I found it in a DVD bargain bin after never even hearing about it on cinema, which is a great pity. Jean Reno is in a different role for a change, and he excels - his comic timing is perfect, and together with Applegate and the dumb slave, you are left wishing you could see more of them. You also develop a real hate for Applegate's boyfriend. I laughed solidly the entire way through at the way the characters battled to fit in with modern living standards. Everything from the concept to the jokes, even the graphics, is done really well, and I would <more>
highly recommend this to fans of sci-fi comedies or even romantics. 8/10
My god, I saw this movie yesterday and I'm still laughing at some of the scenes as I recall them from my memory. This was a hilarious light-hearted movie, perfect in my opinion for any sense of humour. It is definitly worth seeing I saw it on The Movie Network . Perfect for gatherings and general good times.Four stars on the VitalBird scale. **** out of 5, not 10 .
This "What If" Comedy Is Good For Some Real Laughs (by jhclues)
Magic, as well as evil, is afoot in 12th Century France, and when the two are combined to effect the sinister scheme of an unscrupulous individual the result is a comedic journey for a Nobleman and his lackey as they are transported into the 21st Century in `Just Visiting,' directed by Jean-Marie Poire, and starring Jean Reno and Christina Applegate. Count Thibault Reno is about to marry Princess Rosalind Applegate , daughter of King Henry Richard Bremmer and his Queen Sarah Badel , but at a prenuptial banquet the Earl of Warwick Robert Glenister , who covets the fair Rosalind, <more>
coerces a witch Valerie Griffiths into casting a spell that will enable him to usurp Thibault and make Rosalind his own. The plan goes gravely awry, however, and Thibault subsequently engages the talents of an English Wizard Malcolm McDowell to set things aright. But the Wizard proceeds to muck it up even worse, sending Thibault and his slave, Andre le Pate Christian Clavier , into a `Tunnel of time' from which they ultimately emerge in Chicago, 2001, where they encounter Julia Malfete also Applegate , the spitting image of Rosalind, who turns out to be a direct descendant of Thibault. And it becomes the task of the Nobleman, Thibault, to find a way back to his own time. In the meantime, he and Andre attempt to negotiate this world of the future with a Medieval mind-set that puts them at odds with the inanimate objects and humans that surround them. And it becomes a trial by fire for the brave Count, and a laugh riot of uproarious proportions for the audience. This stranger-in-a-strange-land, fish-out-of-water scenario has been done before, to be sure, but it's given a fresh face here compliments of Poire, who sets a good pace and keeps the story on track, and the talents and impeccable comedic timing of his cast, especially Clavier and Reno, who play so well off of one another. Much of what transpires is predictable-- the way Thibault and Andre react to a modern city replete with technology, and specifically things like automobiles, light switches and television-- but they always manage to take it one step further, which makes the humor spontaneous and genuinely funny. Reno is perfect as Thibault, playing it straight and allowing the humor to naturally evolve from the character's reaction to a situation rather than going for the purely physical humor. Reno, in fact, demonstrates a real talent for acting through reacting, which makes his character believable and adds to the humor of the film. He never allows Thibault to lose that 12th Century logic, willing to attest to his own nobility, for example, to anyone who will listen, and backing it up with a verbal inventory of his assets, which includes things like fifty barrels of olives and, of course, Andre. It's not a performance that requires a lot of depth, but for the film to work it had to be done right, and with precision, and Reno succeeds admirably on both counts. Clavier, on the other hand, goes straight for the jugular with an all-out assault of slapstick and physical humor that takes it right to the edge and works perfectly in effecting what was intended: He makes you laugh out loud. Reminiscent of a cross between Peter Sellers' Clouseau-- though not as subtle-- and the best of Monty Python, Clavier creates a memorable character, who as the `property' of Thibault gives a real perspective and context to the humor of the story. Some of his `discoveries' of the modern world will have you rolling on the floor. And again, the fact that he plays the character straight and not just `for' laughs adds significantly to the overall humor of the film. Christina Applegate provides a welcome presence as Rosalind/Julia, and while not a stretch for her as an actor, by any means, she lends a quality to the film that could be easily overlooked, but would be quite apparent as a missing element without her. She has a natural, charismatic manner that makes her endearing and sympathetic, and it's a good, solid performance through which she creates a credible, well rounded character. The supporting cast includes Matt Ross Hunter , Tara Reid Angelique , Bridgette Wilson Amber , John Aylward Byron , George Plimpton Dr. Brady , Bill Bailey Thibault's Father and Clare Welch Thibault's Mother . A comedy that successfully blends the fine art of comedic subtlety with physical gags, `Just Visiting' is everything a comedy should be: Funny and entertaining. And it does it without venturing into over-the-top Farrelly Brothers territory or by employing the abstract brand of hilarity often offered by the Coen Brothers. It's a film that succeeds on it's own merits, and does it splendidly. It's a funny one you don't want to miss, and that's the magic of the movies. I rate this one 8/10.
