Not worth seeing
23 July 2004 | by ElgroovioSee all my reviews

The thing about the original "Around the World in 80 Days that made it so enjoyable was the fact that you could spot tons famous actors in cameos. But this this bleak remake has little to recommend apart from Jackie Chan's amazing martial arts moves. Arnold Schwarzannegar (how the hell do you spell it?) plays a prince in Turkey and is just plain embarassing, and I like him as an actor. John Cleese appears for little more time in this film than he did in the first Harry Potter film, and Macy Gray also makes a bizarre cameo appearance as a sleeping French woman. She must have wanted more after "Spider man". Steve Coogan is no David Niven, and he just doesn't have enough charm to keep this film going. But Cecile DeParis is the worst of all. The only good thing in this film apart from Jackie Chan is Rob Schneider as a tramp. You might like it but I think it's pretty mediocre. 6/10
