Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Adventure Comedy - This is a action-adventure comedy aimed at a more family-oriented audience than most Jackie Chan films. Some parents may be put off by the martial arts violence, but it is bloodless and often played for laughs.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average The biggest problem with Around the World in 80 Days is the inconsistent entertainment value of the episodes. .... Although each episode might be marginally entertaining in its own right, the overall effect is that the movie isn't funny enough, exciting enough, or dramatic enough to warrant two hours of an audience member's time.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good None of this amounts to anything more than goofy fun, but that's what the ads promise, and the movie delivers. It's light as a fly, but springs some genuinely funny moments, especially by Schwarzenegger, the Wilsons and the irrepressible Chan.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 50 moviegoer opinions. About three-quarters of the moviegoers enjoyed "Around the World" very much rating it "Very Good" or higher. Most of the remaining quarter rated it "Good," which indicates an average movie and no one really disliked it.

I feel this is an excellent family movie since everyone in the family should enjoy it, at least to some degree.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
An eccentric London inventor, Phileas Fogg (STEVE COOGAN), has come up with the secrets to flight, electricity, and even in-line skates, but the establishment has dismissed him as a crackpot. Desperate to be taken seriously, Fogg makes an outlandish bet with Lord Kelvin (JIM BROADBENT), the head of the Royal Academy of Science: to circumnavigate the globe in no more than 80 days! With his valet Passepartout (JACKIE CHAN) and thrill-seeking French artist Monique (CÉCILE DE FRANCE) at his side, Fogg is headed on a frantic, heart-pounding round-the-world race that takes our heroes to the world's most exotic places by land, sea, and air.
