I wrote this review in 1999 on IMDb and I thought I would add it here.
I've seen many, many movies in my time. Many were very good, and many were very bad. Then there was "Journey to the Center of the Earth". Of all the films I've seen in my 21½ years of existence, I've chosen "Journey..." as the worst that I have ever seen. Okay so it was a TV movie. But still, a mess of a picture like this shouldn't be allowed to waste people's time like it did. It aired 6 years ago (on NBC) and it still lingers in my mind of how distasteful and laughably silly it was. Poor F. Murray Abraham. He went from winning an Oscar to landing a brief supporting role here. Also, I am currently trying to get "Journey..." on the IMDb "bottom 100 movies" list. Please, if you could help, vote for this film, even if you haven't seen it, and give it the biggest 1 you've ever given in your life! Please??
