By Chris Hewitt, Pioneer Press, St. Paul, Minn. Jul. 7--"Ebullient" would be a good word for Brendan Fraser. "Impossible-to-punctuate," too. Here's Fraser -- who stars in Friday's adventure, "Journey to the Center of the Earth" -- describing what it's like to have "Journey" and "The Mummy 3" open within three weeks of each other: "I'm on the hurdy-gurdy tour," says Fraser, launching into a merry-go-round-like song. "It has to do with the alchemy of chaos that goes with which studio...

"Journey to the Center of the Earth" is cinematic sci-fi proof that the Earth's core is made of cheese. Who knew? Mercifully, it's old-fashioned family-friendly B-movie cheese, served up in this Brendan Fraser/Jules Verne action epic for kids. Seek out this "Journey" in a theater showing it in 3-D.
