Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Amiably dorky redo."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"The gags are physical but rarely funny."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"I was amazed at how little actually happens for a movie with so much action."
‑ Mary Lasse, Christianity Today
"Se eu fosse descendente de Verne processaria os produtores desta adaptação pavorosa por mancharem o nome da família ao incluí-lo nos créditos iniciais."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"This purely satirical version sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't."
‑ Shirley Sealy, Film Journal International
"It was exactly what I expected and that's something I didn't really want to see."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Despite the rush to get everyone from place to place, director Frank Coraci luxuriates in colorful visual detail and gives the locals their due."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"It's ironic that this film is less about traveling and more about beating the crap out of people all over the world."
‑ Uri Lessing,
"...Fogg essentially winds up playing second-banana to Passepartout - a disastrous choice that simply does not work."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Jackie Chan ... is undermined by the film's lack of direction."
‑ Tony Toscano, Talking Pictures (U.S.)
"Around the World in 80 Days is never as delightful and silly as it needs to be."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek,
"Mildly amusing Jackie Chan adventure."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"The heart and soul of it, the story and the casting, are a complete mess."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"...just another adventure comedy built around Jackie Chan, this time with Verne's travelogue tenuously holding the action scenes together."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Phony, unfunny family entertainment...packs in almost every racial and cultural stereotype in the world."
‑ Thomas Delapa, Boulder Weekly
