An american retelling of the 1993 French comedy "Les Visiteurs." In the film, a French nobleman, count Thibault of Malfete and his servant Andre find themselves in modern-day Chicago - transported from the 12th century due to a wizard's flawed time-travel potion. Confused, lost and overwhelmed, they meet Thibault's descendant Julia Malfete and her scheming fiancé Hunter. Thibault and Andre soon realize they must quickly find a way back to their own time....otherwise Julia and Thibault's entire lineage will never exist. With their timeless values of honor and courage, Thibault and Andre wreak hilarious havoc as they foil diabolical plots in both the 12th and 21st centuries.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: This remake of the French comedy Les Visiteurs ends up being a middling, forgettable effort -- not as good as the original.

Bears the scars of a film sliced and diced by a studio hoping to salvage a failed comedy.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that a ferocious dragon guards a witch's lair. Sorcery makes a roomful of people look like grotesque, talking vegetable-beings. A dismembered wizard's body re-animates and re-assembles. African-American characters seem to be comic-relief menials. Regular use of "s--t." Some sloppy eating, flatulence, fighting/dueling, drinking alcohol, and playing with toilets from the Dark Ages characters. The modern characters cohabit without benefit of marriage. One female goes through deliberately seductive poses in revealing clothes. A wizard uses an animal penis in a potion. Magic makes characters deform, mutate, and even explode. Frequent slapstick mayhem, usually with swords. An innocent girl is stabbed to death (magic reverses her fate, however); a thief is threatened with amputation of his hand. The bewildered heroes thoroughly wreck modern appliances, including an SUV.
