Gulliver's Travels

Critics Consensus

Though Jack Black is back doing what he does best, Gulliver's Travels largely fails to do any justice to its source material, relying instead on juvenile humor and special effects.

Movie Info

In a contemporary re-imagining of the classic tale, Gulliver, a big-talking mailroom clerk who, after he's mistakenly assigned a travel piece on the Bermuda Triangle, suddenly finds himself a giant among men when he washes ashore on the hidden island of Lilliput, home to a population of very tiny people. At first enslaved by the diminutive and industrious Liliputians, and later declared their hero, Gulliver comes to learn that it's how big you are on the inside that counts.

    I didn't get why this had to be so stupid. Jack black is making a habit for these duds

    Everyone who watched this movie expected something big out of it. Jack Black doing his trademark stuff with a bit of physical humour and a story that fitys him. Sounded absolutely great. But unfortunately it didn't do justice to the source material and the effects much like the story was flimsy and unconvincing.

    This movie was a disgusting shame. The comedy is for 6 year old boys who pick their nose, Jack Black is so bad in this movie but the mini people suck even worse. This movie tricks you making it seem like a kid movie but then it curses, he starts peeing on people, and it has a lot of sex references. The story is so dumb and pointless. So overall, I hated this movie, and I don't recommend it to anybody.

    The film was so so. I couldn't believe the short running time on the film. I thought it would be a little bit longer. It seems like they didn't execute the story correctly here. The film seemed like a rush job to get the film in theaters. There is some really funny moments, as well as a bunch of stupid ones too. Jack Black was ok in the lead role. I could have seen Jim Carrey, Ben Stiller, or Adam Sandler play the lead. A lot of the other cast members seem to be wasted in the film. I would be expecting better with a cast like that.
