Lots of people find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time, but this comic fantasy takes that notion to a whole new level. Count Thibault of Malfete (Jean Reno) is a brave warrior and respected nobleman in 12th century France. Count Thibault has won the heart of the lovely Princess Rosalind (Christina Applegate) and has a loyal servant in the loyal but half-bright Andre (Christian Clavier).

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Truly it is a peculiar curse upon the world, this high-concept joke that refuses to die."
‑ Gene Seymour, Newsday
"Curiously unfunny."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"Bears the scars of a film sliced and diced by a studio hoping to salvage a failed comedy."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"Just Visiting isn't a total misfire, there are some amusing sequences ... but there are also cringe-worthy moments as well."
‑ Ted Murphy, Baseline.Hollywood.com
"Creates a fair degree of authenticity in its representations of cultural and period differences."
‑ Yazmin Ghonaim, Cinephiles
"Not only microwaves what is already four-day-old fish in Paris, but lets the original director, screenwriters, and stars do the reheating."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"It could be worth a visit to your local multiplex if this kind of frothy foolishness appeals to you."
‑ Doug Knoop, Seattle Times
"The visuals look dark, grubby and cheap, making us feel like we're watching a shoddy knock-off rather than an enthusiastic remake"
‑ Ian Waldron-Mantgani, UK Critic
"The broad slapstick that could remotely be considered mildly funny in their native context goes over like a lead balloon en anglais."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"What's annoying about this version is that it's been dumbed down for American audiences."
‑ Norm Schrager, Filmcritic.com
"Some of these gags are very funny, and it's a pleasure to see Reno as something other than a villain in an English language picture."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Time travel comedy with bathroom humor."
‑ Charles Cassady, Common Sense Media
"Just Visiting is far from intolerable, and, as these things go, it's probably not even "bad". But there doesn't seem to have been any talent behind it, any thought, any care."
‑ Eugene Novikov, Film Blather
"Hobbled by its two leads, whose French accents muddy their lines and make the film a lot less accessible to the younger audiences the film targets."
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
"The word 'innocuous' was created for movies like this, both in the sense of being harmless, and in the sense of being unlikely to inspire any strong feelings."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
