Trivia

When Phileas Fogg (Steve Coogan) is stuck in San Francisco as a beggar, you can see on the wall behind him a poster advertising the mineral water "Hunyadi Janos". Named after a fifteenth century Hungarian General, this water had been discovered in 1862 and introduced to the U.S. around the 1880s, whereafter the Hunyadi water became a widely used laxative for the next couple of decades. In fact, you can also note the word "laxative" on the poster. See more »

Goofs

When Passepartout jumps off the wall on to the bags of "flower" as he is chasing the hot air balloon's rope he knocks off a bag but when the others jump over the bag is back on the pile. See more »

Is this a Coogan or Chan movie?
6 August 2004 | by ofjeworstlustSee all my reviews

Is this a Coogan or Chan movie? That's the only puzzling thing about this movie. For the rest simply an action packed adventure, with a little too much romance on the side. 15 years ago this movie would have been a great success in the line of Goonies or a Disney flick.

Now a little overacting at times (the English cop who follows the main characters for example) is compensated with great cameos, I won't give them away, but keep watching!

Coogan is just like in his tv series, the well-known expressions and faces are shown. Just his character, can anyone be that naive at times???

Chan is sometimes the comedian with oneliners, and sometimes the actor with bad lines. His fights rule, his acting still didn't. It didn't spoil the movie, but the plot that kept returning to the 'chinese connection' almost did. I didn't expect a co-plot, just Fogg travelling around the world!!!

Don't believe the viewers describing this as a kid-movie. If you liked Goonies in the past, read the book and like Chan's unbelievable fighting scenes, you will be satisfied. 6/10 from me.
