To win a bet, an eccentric British inventor, beside his Chinese valet and an aspiring French artist, embarks on a trip full of adventures and dangers around the world in exactly eighty days.
When Phileas Fogg (Steve Coogan) is stuck in San Francisco as a beggar, you can see on the wall behind him a poster advertising the mineral water "Hunyadi Janos." Named after a fifteenth century Hungarian General, this water had been discovered in 1862 and introduced to the U.S. around the 1880s, whereafter the Hunyadi water became a widely used laxative for the next couple of decades. In fact, you can also note the word "laxative" on the poster.
Here comes Mr. Grumpy... and the Leather-ettes.
After Fogg and his companions have been launched from the paddle-ship, the captain asks; "How are we going to get back?". Yet the paddle-ship has sails. The ship HAD sails but was dismantled for the construction of the flying machine. No sails are left intact as shown by a wide shot of the ship on day 80.
Some commercial television prints cut out the Arnold Schwarzenegger cameo sequence.
