From the Jules Verne novel... Fineas Fogg - an intrepid explorer from Victorian London places a bet that he can travel around the world in 80 Days. A preposterous claim at the time. En route he encounters a motley crew of cultures and a travelling companion Parspettou.
Will it fly? Brit comic Steve Coogan is relatively unknown in the US. He won't be when this is released and he's hailed as the next Peter Sellers. (Something he's been in the UK for the past 10 years.) A timeless tale with a winning cast. Can't fail I suspect. Though it appears I was wrong. Ho-hum.
