Storyline

The sequel to The Visitors reunites us with those lovable ruffians from the French Medieval ages who - through magic - are transported into the present, with often drastic consequences. Godefroy de Montmirail travels to today to recover the missing family jewels and a sacred relic, guarantor of his wife-to-be's fertility. The confrontation between Godefroy's repellent servant Jack the Crack and his descendent, the effete Jacquart, present-day owner of the chateau, further complicates the matter. Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

Trivia

Valérie Lemercier did not reprise her role because she thought it was way too similar to the first movie and she "did not want to do the same thing twice." She also found the scenario very bad. See more »

Far cry from original
28 September 2018 | by sandromartashviliSee all my reviews

Such a disappointment. To keep it short, It's basically a dumbed down and cheaply made version of the original film. Everything got downgraded: characters, humor, plot and even editing. Jokes are just shouting and childish slapstick humor. Plot is ridiculous (even for a medieval movie about time travel). Jacquouille is dumbed down to the point that his version from the first movie looks smart.

I feel sorry for Jean Renault, how did he get himself into this mess (and to know that there are two more sequels).
