On the eve
of medieval knight Thibault's wedding a wizard manages to
send the brave knight and his servant 800 years into the future.
Here, in the year 2001 they must find a way back to their

Visiting is Jean-Marie's remake of his 1993 French comedy
Les Visiteurs. You'd think that he could perfect the
movie and turn it from a dog into a swan. But sadly, this
movie has hardly any redeeming qualities whatsoever.
OK then. There are a few slightly funny scenes and I'm sure
anyone under the age of 10 will watch this over and over again.
But for lovers of comedy, the cinema or medieval history,
please don't watch this.
front of the DVD case is littered with lies. Firstly it claims
that the disc contains interactive trailers. No it doesn't
- unless the ability to fast forward through them is classed
as interactive. There are about 10 trailers on this disc and
each has to be watched before you get to the movie (although
you can skip through them).
next lie is the bizarre quotes from publications which are
supposed to have reviewed the movie. Womans Own apparently
think it is: "Better than Shrek!". While
CD:UK Magazine (Don't ask why a CD magazine is reviewing
a movie) claimed: "It couldn't be more hilarious."
Now I don't know what they were watching, but it can't possibly
have been the same movie I saw.
Visiting is a one gag movie. As a 10 minute short it might
have been watchable, but there really isn't enough meat here
to sustain the cast through a full length movie.
