Surprisingly good remake!
7 October 2002 | by (Järvenpää, Finland) – See all my reviews

You may laugh at me if you like but I still think "Les Visiteurs" of 1993 is one of the greatest French movies I've ever seen and yes, I've seen quite a lot of them. The idea of a remake for an American audience seemed pretty pointless and stupid because the original was so bloody excellent and entertaining comedy already. Before I saw "Just visiting" I wondered would it be easier just to teach the people of America how to read the subtitles instead of making a whole new film.

Last night I watched this one simply out of curiosity and it turned out being rather great. My brother said that it was even better and claimed that the remake was definitely a sensible thing to do because the idea of "Les Visiteurs" was marvelous but the film was incomplete and filled with flaws. I don't necessarily think this one's better but it's not much worse either.

At least it made me laugh just as much and Jean Reno and especially Christian Clavier were fantastic and even Christina Applegate (Kelly from the highly popular tv sitcom "Married with children") didn't disappoint me. So all I can say is "Just visiting" was a splendid effort and worth a watch. Hilarious scenes, absurd characters and downright crazy plot. I wish I would also had a chance to see "Les Couloirs du temps: Les visiteurs 2" because I haven't found it anywhere in Finland. Shame.
