Trama e commenti: «Bloccato nei corridoi del tempo, Goffredo de Montmirail e il suo servo fedele Jacqouillet vengono proiettati in un momento storico di profondi sconvolgimenti politici e sociali: la Rivoluzione francese. In particolare, il periodo di terrore e dei grandi pericoli durante il quale i discendenti della famiglia Jacqouillet, convinti rivoluzionari, confiscano il castello e tutti i beni ai discendenti di Goffredo de Montmirail, aristocratici arroganti in fuga la cui vita è appesa a un filo».

Plot Summary, Synopsis, Review: IMDb - - - - - - - - - - «Before Intouchables and Welcome to the Sticks became the two highest-grossing French films in history, one of the most successful local movies was the 1993 time-traveling comedy Les Visiteurs, which was shot on a budget of about $10 million and wound up pulling in close to 10 times that at the box office. It was followed by a 1998 sequel that raked in an impressive 8 million admissions at home, then by a 2001 English-language remake entitled Just Visiting that was a total flop both critically and commercially — and surely something to leave off the resumes of Christina Applegate and the late, great John Hughes, who's credited as one of the screenwriters. Over 20 years since the first movie — about a medieval knight, Godefroy de Montmirail (Jean Reno) and his loyal servant, Jacquouille (Christian Clavier), teleporting to present-day France and getting into all sorts of trouble — became the sort of 90’s classic that many Frenchies grew up with and still remember fondly, the filmmakers have decided to take another stab at the formula with part three of the trilogy, The Visitors: Bastille Day (Les Visiteurs: La Revolution), which brings back some of the original cast and crew while adding a few new comic talents of the moment.

The result, alas, may be one of the worst French comedies in recent memory — so poorly written and conceived that it makes the work of current Gallic screen idol Kev Adams (
Serial Teachers) look like Ernst Lubitsch in comparison, or the ultra-popular, ultra-painful The Tuche franchise seem like a Billy Wilder production. There’s basically nothing to salvage here for producer-distributor Gaumont, who may have a hard time recouping its purported €25 million ($28 million) investment, making this one of the most expensive French-language productions, well, ever. Beginning more or less where the second film ended, the script (by Clavier and returning director Jean-Marie Poire) finds Godefroy and Jacquouille whisked away from 1993 to the Reign of Terror of 1793, when thousands of aristocrats were guillotined at the hands of Maximilien Robespierre (Nicolas Vaude). Still dressed in their Middle Age garb and stricken with Middle Age manners, the two knuckleheads — considerably older-looking now, though the screenplay lamely tries to deal with that issue — are soon caught between fleeing royalty (Karin Viard, Franck Dubosc) and Jacobin allies, including Robespierre’s sister (Sylvie Testud) and the journalist Marat (Christian Hecq), who was immortalized in Jacques-Louis David’s famous bathtub painting (and yes, there are several bath jokes here, including one where Jacquouille drops a piece of chocolate cake into Marat’s tub. Get it? What?). ...» (Jordan Mintzer).
