Trivia

The French balloon man who calls the main characters insane as they jump into the basket is a cameo appearance by Sir Richard Branson. As well as being the boss of the Virgin Group, he is also famed for his sometimes life-threatening ballooning record attempts. See more »

Goofs

On the paddle-ship on the Atlantic, the paddles are turning and some of the sails are also unfurled. However if the wind was having any effect it would have to be going faster than the ship. In that case the smoke from the smokestack should be blown forward, in the direction of travel. In fact it is shown going sideways or even backwards; this implies that the sails are actually causing a drag on the ship, slowing it down. See more »

cute movie that is better for those who haven't read the book
30 May 2005 | by cheroldSee all my reviews

Very unfaithful adaptation of the Jules Verne novel, yet much more entertaining than the tedious and wildly overrated but relatively faithful David Niven version. The movie is breezy and enjoyable, with some fun fight scenes, although it is completely inconsequential.

I think it would help when watching this movie to have not read the book, because one cannot help but think that the extensive rewriting was not necessary. Passepartout's character could have been expanded for Jackie without so many other changes. Changing Phineas to a bumbling, goofy inventor was clearly done in an attempt to make the movie into another version of the buddy movie that has been Jackie's greatest friend in the U.S., but Coogan is unexceptional in the role and doesn't have a lot of chemistry with Jackie, so they really should have just done the character as written, which could have made for a much smarter movie.

In spite of plot holes and some silliness though, I enjoyed this, at least in that, watch-a-movie-on-TV-on-a-Saturday-morning way.
