Starring Pierce Brosnan as Phileas Fogg and featuring Eric Idle, Peter Ustinov, Christopher Lee and many more... Based on Jules Verne's classic about 19th century aristocrat Phileas Fogg's bet that he can circumnavigate the earth in a mere 80 days - and vows to leave that very night, taking only some necessary cash in a carpet bag and his newly-hired manservant, Jean Passepartout. Can it be mere coincidence that 55,000 English pounds is missing from the Bank of England? The Bank's directors don't think so, and have private detective Mr. Fix to bring in the most likely suspect: a man leaving the country with an unusually large quantity of money.

Sort it out Amazon. This is silly.
Yes, some of the editing is dodgy and yes some of the acting is cheesy, but I guarantee you will enjoy the innocent fun, beautiful scenery (they did actually shoot the series all around the world) and the comedic talent of all involved. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended 4.5 hours of fun.
However, Pierce Brosnan, Eric Idle, and Peter Ustinov are all worth watching, and there are plenty of entertaining moments. It could have done by being shortened by at least an hour though.
This is not to say it is bad, just not right for us.

Reasonable quality though the sound wasn't great at times meaning we had to turn the volume way up to be able to hear it properly. Over all was glad I purchased it.Published on 22 Aug. 2011 by ej
