The sequel to The Visitors reunites us with those lovable ruffians from the French Medieval ages who – through magic – are transported into the present, with often drastic consequences. Godefroy de Montmirail travels to today to recover the missing family jewels and a sacred relic, guarantor of his wife-to-be’s fertility. The confrontation between Godefroy’s repellent servant Jack the Crack and his descendent, the effete Jacquart, present-day owner of the chateau, further complicates the matter.

User Reviews: The Visiteurs 1 is one of my preferred, the sequel is one of the few movies I just cannot keep watching (one of others being Borat). Enough was said by the other members above, I want to add ‘primitive’. The degeneration I suspect lies in somewhat similar to Wertmuller’s Swept Away http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073817/ that is a masterpiece (but a local one, you have to know well Italy – or Mediterranean to appreciate it) vs Guy Ritchie’s & Madonna’s Swept Away http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0291502/ I’ve seen few others (e.g. acting Banderas) remakes / sequels degeneration. Apart from personal tastes / what editor must not do, why do Americans remake already nice movies? I clearly felt this influence (and later read about Visiteurs 3) at the beginning and random jumping in Visitors II.
