The movie has not aged well. To its credit, it is benign and charming, with an intoxicating musical score, compelling cinematography and a continually advancing locale.

An eye-filling travelogue, an exciting adventure and a very funny film.
Christopher Null
June 8, 2004
The cast of thousands and absurb scenarios overcomes the overlong oddities in the movie.

Around the World in Eighty Days may have its faults and lost some of its original allure, but it remains a sure-bet even today.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Bloated, overblown, all-star extravaganza. Very much of its time.
| Original Score: 3/5

This 1956 multi-Oscar winner has probably aged badly during the intervening years.

Not only the beginning of cameos, this was also the beginning of large, flashy, special-effects ladden spectacles that did more for the dazzling of the eye than it did for the mind.

The novelty these far-flung places must have had for a 1956 audience is a bit lessened for the viewer today.

October 17, 1956
It was definitely one of the biggest "event" films of the 1950s, but the decade produced many smaller films that were much more entertaining and that have aged better.
