Substance: Although it was necessary to account for Chan's presence in the story of an English gentleman and his French valet, it was not at all necessary to mangle the story to extent perpetrated by the screenwriters. As always, Chan's fights were artfully choreographed, but the story-line and characters were juvenile in the worst sense of the word.
Style: Beautifully filmed, and the inventions were fun; no problem with the mix of live-action and computer-graphic scenics (although that was first done in "Peter Pan" and has become a staple of Disney Studios. However, the emphasis on fifth-grade body humor was overdone, unneeded, and offensive. ( )

In a lively discussion with Lord Kelvin, inventor Phileas Fogg states his belief that it's possible for someone to travel around the globe in a mere 80 days. Kelvin challenges him to prove it, and adds a wager: if Fogg can't circumnavigate the globe in 80 days, he'll have to give up inventing forever. Fogg and his crew of two take the challenge. They travel by train, boat, balloon, horseback, or any other means at their disposal.
