Heart-warming retelling of a classic story
Much has been said concerning the lackluster box office revenue generated by this attempt. My only comment towards this condition is to say that it was not marketed properly. Most Americans had no idea this movie was even being made. There was no “media blitz” to hype it, and the proceeds reflects that neglect.
This is NOT a remake of the original movie. It is also NOT a faithful adaptation to Jules Verne’s literary work. What it IS, is a delightful comedic (dare I say “parody?”) version of a story many of us have enjoyed. It is labeled a “Disney” production, but in truth, Disney only distributed it. But it is made with Disney’s involvement firmly in mind and is a fun, adventurous, and even rousing family movie.
Now as a version of Around the World in 80 Days which lists Passepartout before Phineas (here, known as Phileas) Fogg, this had no business pulling itself out of the mire. Passepartout is a supporting character, not the main. However, I must say that no matter who the principle character was, Jackie Chan’s Passepartout was the star. Steve Coogan proved himself more than capable of commenting the Phineas/Phileas role and did so with a crisp dignity one can only hold in regard.
Jackie Chan exhibits some of his most inspired comedic martial arts to date in this production and I daresay it’s worth the price of the DVD just to see him. Many fans were beginning to wonder if he still had “it.” Personally, I loved “Tuxedo” and “Medallion” but apparently there were doubts. Not anymore. Jackie Chan demonstrated, as only he could, that he still has what it takes to make his fans happy.
Now, as I indicated earlier, this was not the blow-by-blow retelling of Verne’s vision. But that did not take away one ounce of enjoyment. It was entertaining and deftly captured the spirit of Verne’s work. True, the original work was not a comedy, but if you’ve read Jules Verne, you’ll understand that he did have a wonderful sense of humor. He included characters in his works which were present for no other purpose than comic relief. Jackie Chan’s Passepartout fits that mold perfectly.
This production possesses every aspect held dear in the novel. There is adventure, comedy, beautiful vistas from great locations all around the world, and inventions. It presented a beautiful culminating blend of many of the themes from Verne’s works. There are many gentle reminders of Verne’s vision and his novels scattered all through this attempt. As someone who loves Jules Verne’s novels, I felt proud for him to have been shown the respect and admiration he deserved.
This is a fun, entertaining, and heart-warming retelling of a classic story.
Check out Frank Coraci’s nod to his “Wedding Singer” and “Waterboy” days (and the Adam Sandler crowd) with a very short speaking part from Rob Schneider.
