When Sean announces that he is going the Mysterious Island, Hank jokingly says, 'maybe you stop by the moon and grab me a slurpee'. This foreshadows the next movie in the series Journey to the Center of the Earth: From the Earth to the Moon. See more »
At the very end of the movie as it zooms out from the Earth to the Moon, along the way we see airplanes and satellites, and just before the Moon we apparently pass through some sort of asteroid belt. There is no asteroid belt between the Earth and the Moon. See more »
I see trees of green, red roses too. I see them bloom, for me and for you. And I think to myself: What a wonderful world! I see giant bees, and I could have told ya: Don't trust Alexander - he's older than Yoda. And I think to myself: What a wonderful world! The island that we stand on... Well, it's currently sinking. Sending those secret codes - what the heck were you drinking? But it's all in the past, we wiped the slate clean! We're going to find Nemo's submarine! And you'll think ...

There is a brief scene of elephants swimming to the city halfway through the credits right before the cast listing. See more »
Not so much a sequel as a new story altogether comes this likableif unnecessaryadventure about Sean Anderson, a callow youth and 'Vernian' who receives an encoded message then becomes obsessed with the idea that it was sent by his absentee grandfather who may or may not have discovered a mythical island that may or may not really exist. Accompanied by his stepfather, a frugal pilot, and the pilot's attractive daughter, Sean travels across the Pacific to the island where the group encounters an assortment of wonders but just as many dangerous perils. Uninspired, fairly predictable, but Johnson and Caine give the film some much needed gravitas, Guzman adds his trademark comic relief, there are some good effects and exciting moments every now and again, but the subplot about parents and their children doesn't really resonate. A good family-oriented fare, just nothing special. **
