Around the World in 80 Days


USA 2004, 120 minutes
Dir. Frank Coraci
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Comedy, Action/Adventure

Topics: Period - 1800s.


Aroview: Colourfully energetic version of Jules Verne's classic adventure, in which a casual bet sets three unusual companions on a race around the globe.

Coogan plays here inventor Phileas Fogg with enough awkward eccentricity to get by, though Chan thoroughly steals the show as a runaway Chinese robber masquerading as Fogg's valet. Ultimately more of a revision of Verne than the Niven version, with several added subplots, this succeeds most as brash entertainment. Also features star-cameos aplenty.
