Count Thibault and André attack a red SUV, saying, "Look! A red dragon!" In the original French 1993 version, they demolish a yellow postal van, but first scare off its black driver, saying, "Look! A Moor!" The scene was changed for "racial sensitivity". See more »

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.
