Knight Godefroy de Montmirail and squire Jacquouille are stranded in 1793. Using trickery to break free from their shackles, both perilously partake in the Montmirail family's run away in the quest for an exiting time-shift.
A knight and his valet are plagued by a witch, and to repair the damage, they make use of the services of a wizard. However, something goes wrong and they are transported from the twelfth century to the year 2000. There, the knight meets some of his family, and slowly learns what this new century is like. However, he still needs to get back to the twelfth century to deal with the witch, so he starts looking for a wizard.Written by

The pawn shop that Andre and Angelique go to is Royal Pawn Shop in Chicago, Illinois. It's the same place featured in the reality show Hardcore Pawn: Chicago (2013). See more »

Excuse me, but the gentleman can't eat off the floor.
He's not a gentleman! He is my servant

There are several differences between the UK cinema cut and the French DVD cut of the film. First of all, there is an additional 2 minute scene at the start of the French cut, where Julia donates part of the castle to the museum. Then, the first few scenes of the UK are seen, but in a different order. Additional short sequences are also included, but the next big change is the ending. The four final sequences are now seen in 6 sections, in the order of Jean Reno's character returning to the palace, Hunter being sent back in time, Andre and Angelique driving to Las Vegas (slightly shortened), Julia at the castle (which is slightly extended), Thibault giving Roseline the hair clip from Julia, and then, as the credits start to roll, we see Hunter in the middle ages, and suddenly, we are on the film set, with a VERY unhappy actor. As the credits continue, we see various clips from the film, and right at the end, an outtake. None of these end credits appear in the UK. See more »
My brother and I went to this movie and we were the only people in the theater. We laughed so hard I had to go outside of the theater. I thought I was going to pee in my pants it was so funny. I can't say enough about it. Leave your high falutin' film-going skills at the door and laugh. Go. Jean Reno is great both as a romantic character and as a comedian, but when you think of Leon or Ronin, you remember that he could definitely play for laughs. Christian Clavier is hilarious and excellent comedic actor who is unknown to the general US public. Finally, Applegate does some good work playing the straight man/woman. Finally, what was an interesting approach was to take a successful foreign comedy and redo it in the USA. But, they used the same director and actors. It translated well which is unusual for comedies- much harder to cross cultures.
