Just Visiting (2001)



Critic Consensus: This remake of the French comedy Les Visiteurs ends up being a middling, forgettable effort -- not as good as the original.

Truly it is a peculiar curse upon the world, this high-concept joke that refuses to die.

Not only microwaves what is already four-day-old fish in Paris, but lets the original director, screenwriters, and stars do the reheating.

Some of these gags are very funny, and it's a pleasure to see Reno as something other than a villain in an English language picture.

Curiously unfunny.

It could be worth a visit to your local multiplex if this kind of frothy foolishness appeals to you.

Original was better.

I 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 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!!
