Around the World in 80 Days

PG for action violence, some crude humor and mild language

A tale that centers around three unlikely heroes as they attempt to settle an outrageous wager. An eccentric London inventor, Phileas Fogg, has come up with the secrets to flight, electricity, and even roller-blades, but the world has dismissed him as a crackpot. Desperate to be taken seriously, Fogg makes an outlandish bet with Lord Kelvin, the head of the Royal Academy of Science: to circumnavigate the globe in no more than 80 days! With his two sidekicks--Passepartout and femme fatale Monique--Fogg is headed on a frantic, heart-pounding round-the-world race that takes our heroes to the world's most exotic places by land, sea, and air.
