Playful retelling of Jules Verne's classic novel, starring Jackie Chan and Steve Coogan. Chan plays Passepartout, valet to the neurotic, time-obsessed English inventor, Phileas Fogg (Coogan), who has made a wager with fellow members at his London gentleman's club that he can traverse the globe in only 80 days using as many kinds of transportation as possible (from boats and trains to hot-air balloons and elephants). Unfortunately, the London police have mistakenly identified Fogg as the perpetrator of a bank robbery that took place just before he left the country, and a relentless detective is in hot pursuit of the unlikely pair. To complicate matters further, Passepartout is not what he seems: he is in fact notorious Chinese thief Lau Xing, and has entered Fogg's employ for the prinicipal purpose of lying low after stealing a priceless jade Buddha...
