Just Visiting

Jean-Marie Poiré made this first in 1993 as LES VISITEURS and it was such a hit he decided to try his luck with an english version, his only one to date, and sadly it didn't do as well as he hoped. I've not seen the original so I can't compare the two but I do know Jean Reno and Christian Clavier return to reprise their roles, this time joined by Christina Applegate and Tara Reid. It's a time travel based comedy sending a Count and his servant from 12th century France to modern day Chicago. I t has a few funny moments and does entertain but I can't help but feel something was lost in translation.
