    Preserves the flavor of the original and even improves upon it.

    A happy vulgarity still reigns.

    It does yield solidly comic performances.

    Heartfelt as Reno and Applegate are here, the film strands them with an impotently blustering, straw-dog villain and a limp, directionless story.
  5. It's a crude, visually ugly, and peculiarly over-plotted movie, but the blunt, pungent, physical shtick is often pretty funny.

    No disinfectant could clean up this misbegotten, Americanized remake of "Les Visiteurs."

    Don't even think of visiting this French fiasco.

    This movie was excellent, and definitely funny. Obviously, the majority of the media has no sense of humor.

I don't know.Okay, so maybe it isn't the funniest movie I've ever seen. But it's damn entertaining. I've seen this movie about 7 times. Why? I don't know.
