4.0 out of 5 stars Safe, goofy fun August 14, 2005
Format:DVD
This isn't quite the story you remember. It's been updated to add Monique (lovely Cécile De France) added as romantic interest and occasional damsel in distress, to include Jackie Chan as Fogg's valet, and to give plenty of opportunity for Chan's incredible clowning.

The plot winds its way around the world, one step ahead of the bad guys. It's a basically light movie, and the light tone is reinforced by the amusing animated interludes that skip over the tedium of travel. Fogg is shown as an over-intellectual bumbler, saved (whether he knows it or not) by Passepartout (Chan). Mostly, though, the movie is a vehicle for Chan's brilliant physical humor. If you've never seen him - well, you have no idea just how funny martial arts can be made.

It's a safe kind of movie, with bloodless fights, chaste romance, and people keeping their clothes on. There's no great purpose here, just good fun. Hey, it works for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Charming tale... February 12, 2006
Format:DVD
This movie opened and closed in cinemas faster than you can say "Around The World In Eighty Days", but now, after watching it...I'm beginning to wonder why. Of course the story is nothing to shout about, but I found many aspects of this movie entertaining.

The story is about Lao Xing, a chinese guy posing as a Frenchman (don't ask...) who steals a Jade Buddha from the Bank Of England. You see, the statue rightfully belongs to his village. The fastest way to get back to China is apparently partnering with a crazy inventor and convincing him to make a bet with the Royal Academy of Sciences to go around the world in 80 days. If he does it, he'll be the new Science Minister. Along the way, they learn the meaning of friendship and the inventor even falls in love with a french girl. And the ride to the rather predictable end is unexpectedly fun.

The purpose of this movie is for the audience to have some fun, to entertain...and thankfully the director, Frank Coraci (of Waterboy and Wedding Singer fame) knows that and doesn't lose himself in an overacted, overzealous movie. The cast are a joy to watch. Steve Coogan and Cecille de France had a pretty tall order to fill, especially with the likes of Jackie Chan and Jim Broadbent around but they perform wonderfully. They made a rather dorky albeit cute couple. Jackie Chan, as usual is a hoot to watch...with his trademark martial arts moves and Jim Broadbent as Lord Kelvin, the baddie gives an admirable performance (in his Professor from Narnia mode). The whole "going around the world" also fascinated me. I think these guys actually filmed around the world, and it was really nice seeing the different cultures and places around the world, from U.K right to France, India, China, and various parts of the U.S.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just great. July 4, 2004
By CK
Eight of us (my family) went to the movies. We split up, half saw Spiderman and the other half 80 days. On returning home, guess who did all the talking and raving. The Jackie Chan group. We all loved this movie. The Spiderman group sat silently. It was exactly more of the same for them.
This Chan movie is different from his last two which were bad. This movie is smart, intelligent and very funny. It is much better than most of his recent efforts, except the two "Shangai" movies. No profanities, inanties, trivilaties, just plain grand humorous fun.
The pace of the movie is never too fast nor is it slow. It moves at a superb entertaining pace. In fact as the trip progresses, I kept groaning knowing that each destination meant the movie would be ending soon.
The french girl "de france" is suberb. She is made out neither stupid nor cheap, which is how most movies of this nature deal with female charaters. She is painted with a light hand and I give 5 five stars just for rendering a female charater that is so attractive, interesting and arresting. She grabs you and you keep waiting for the closeups so you can see the little gap between her teeth.
The villaness is done equally well too. Not overacted, no funny accent, she is great to watch. You also watch for her to appear just to see her hairdo and the eye makeup. The cameos by big names, Arnold, John Clease, Owen are icing on the cake. The scene with Arnold was a hoot and Owen brothers don't disappoint. I laughed like crazy in both of these pieces.
Steve Coogan sad to say steals the scene from Jackie. But I think that is what makes this such a super movie. As Jackie is growing older, intelligently he is making movies that character rich rather than keep making fight movies. All four main character are done with aplomb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Adventures March 8, 2005
A Kid's Review
Quentin Choulet

This book is appropriate for 4th graders or 10 year old children.

Phileas Fogg bets the Royal Academy of Science

with all of his inventions. Can he make it around the world in 80 days, or shall he and destroy all of his inventions? Passepartout robs the Jade Buddha and takes refuge in Phileas's mansion. Inspector Fix tries to stop Phileas and his new friend so Phileas will lose the bet. Fix also does a lot of funny things. But Passepartout is so sly that he stops inspector Fix.

I give 5 stars to this book because it was outstanding how Phileas traveled around the world in 80 days with so much obstacles on his way. For example: When Phileas almost died because he was stuck in a cage and one of Fang's agent almost slashed his neck. Then Passepartout started a battle. Phileas helped him at a moment but Passepartout still got hurt. I will recommend this book to people who like funny adventures. In this book there is a lot of running, fighting, and action. It was funny!
