The score is wonderfull,

What are you, a retard? Pronunciation left aside: words change meaning as they are absorbed into other languages. Whether the current use of déjà vu makes sense in French is of no importance, since the expression has a specific meaning in English as it does in other languages. It has nothing to do with misusing languages (that is a completely different matter). Languages exchange material and that's it. Dork!
