Time travel comedy with bathroom humor.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Bears the scars of a film sliced and diced by a studio hoping to salvage a failed comedy.

The visuals look dark, grubby and cheap, making us feel like we're watching a shoddy knock-off rather than an enthusiastic remake
| Original Score: 2/4

Just Visiting is far from intolerable, and, as these things go, it's probably not even "bad". But there doesn't seem to have been any talent behind it, any thought, any care.

Just Visiting isn't a total misfire, there are some amusing sequences ... but there are also cringe-worthy moments as well.

The broad slapstick that could remotely be considered mildly funny in their native context goes over like a lead balloon en anglais.

Hobbled by its two leads, whose French accents muddy their lines and make the film a lot less accessible to the younger audiences the film targets.

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

Creates a fair degree of authenticity in its representations of cultural and period differences.
Norm Schrager

What's annoying about this version is that it's been dumbed down for American audiences.

The word 'innocuous' was created for movies like this, both in the sense of being harmless, and in the sense of being unlikely to inspire any strong feelings.

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

Austin Chronicle

A scattershot affair.

Brian Webster
Apollo Guide
April 9, 2001
An aimless one-joke comedy that wanders down a predictable path, inspiring a modest number of smiles, but not too many laughs.
| Original Score: 65/100

For the most part consistently entertaining.

never slow or boring, but it's never very funny, either

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.

The film strands [Reno and Applegate] with an impotently blustering, straw-dog villain and a limp, directionless story.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
