Poorly constructed endings can leave an unpleasant aftertaste even for movies that are otherwise mostly solid. That’s the case here.

A perfect example of ‘80s fantasy in every way – targeted toward children, unremarkable, and ultimately disappointing.

While hard to describe as anything short of a hagiography, it contains a share of important historical information.

Its ability to tickle the funny bone and warm the heart allow it to work as a traditional rom-com even if the participants are older than is the norm for the genre.

Like all B-movies, this one provides moments of visceral satisfaction while ignoring nuance and (at times) logic.

Falls prey to two common problems: (1) predictable, uninspired humor, and (2) inept attempts to inject drama into the proceedings during the last act.

This is what ‘80s comedies were and all of them, "Better Off Dead" included, are more valuable today as time capsules than as artistic endeavors.

Despite lacking the freshness of 2016 feature, the sequel is funny, energetic, and determined not to take itself seriously.

Genre: Adventure/Comedy
Director: Michael Anderson
Cast: David Niven, Cantinflas, Shirley MacLaine, Robert Newton

With its lazy, somnambulant pace and endless stream of cameos, "Around the World in 80 Days" seems to be unfolding in real time (although it boasts stunning visuals).

With an unwavering devotion to spectacle and action, the film throws down a gauntlet where this kind of mass team-up is concerned.
