Jules Verne's novel "Around the World in 80 Days" becomes an unusual source of inspiration for con man Vickers Cavendish. After reading it, he comes up with the brilliant idea to bet the great-grandson of the book's hero, Phineas Fogg III, that he can't make the same trip - and do it without spending a cent. Intent on preserving his family's name and reputation, Fogg accepts the challenge and enlists the Stooges to come along and help him win the bet. But when Vickers robs the bank where their money is saved, Scotland Yard suspects Fogg and a worldwide warrant is issues for his arrest. With the cops hot on their trail and Vickers laughing all the way to - and from - the bank, Fogg and the Stooges attempt to complete their journey in 80 days, win the bet and prove their innocence. Only one thing's for sure for these chaps: they're going to need a real vacation when this trip ends!
