February 3, 2018
This is truly a lumpy stew of after-school special, classic French comedy and Stooge slapstick.

Time travel comedy with bathroom humor.

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

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.

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.
