It is by far too long and has lost a significant amount of its wonder, but spending a rainy Sunday afternoon with Verne's adventure seeking story is a surprisingly easy, diverting experience.

An epic very much of its time, this vastly entertaining star-studded travelogue was put together (with some difficulty) by the great showman Michael Todd.

The wonder is that this Polyphemus of productions does not simply collapse of its own overweight; but, thanks principally to Showman Todd, the picture skips along with an amazing lightness.

Thanks to its grand scale and great central performances by Niven and Cantinflas, the original fantastic voyage still holds up very respectably.

The most magnificent travelogue disguised as adventure spectacle ever made. Or is it the other way around?

This globe-trotting adventure was not the first to use Todd-AO, but it put the new technology to better effect, taking audiences to exotic places, where they could spot Hollywood stars like Sinatra, MacLaine, and Dietrich, in cameo roles.

Is the whole thing too exhausting? It's a question of how much you can take. We not only took it but found it most amusing.

Big, loud, flashy fun. But "Best Picture"? I don't think so.

80 Days is pure fluff, but it's so delightful in its fluffiness that the lack of any real depth doesn't matter.

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.

The cast of thousands and absurb scenarios overcomes the overlong oddities in the movie.
