Customer Reviews

This is a bad movie.
Nathaniel G. Scott
You CANNOT watch this movie without waiting through nearly 20 MINUTES of ads and previews (no fast forward allowed).
Pen Name
The plot lacks depth and is total nonsense.

I liked it. I'm a Jack Black fan and he delivers again. This is marketed as a kid's movie, so I'm not sure what all the nay-sayers are complaining about. Take a chill pill, pull the critic out of your arse, and Enjoy a funny, feel good movie!

Wow, it's a good thing we rented this through Redbox before reading the reviews here... I don't generally write reviews, but feel I have to help restore the balance. All of my family (40+ mum & dad, 4 kids ages 4 to 11) thought Gulliver's Travels was a good, funny movie. Yes, the 'peeing on the castle' could be seen as gross, but there was no flesh shown, so to my thinking, no harm done. *shrug* Must be a lot of wowsers out there...

So, to paraphrase the Review guide - "What would I have wanted to know before I watched it?"... That kids from 4 to 11 are likely to love it, and laugh-out-loud several times. That parents will smile and laugh too. That there's the typical 'moral lesson' in the story, but it's not heavy. It may not make your all-time-favourite-movies list, but nothing outrageous here.

And yes, I'm buying it now so we can all watch it again and again...

Okay what did you expect? I didn't expect much, but they turned it into a chick flick. This has been the way of Hollywood. Vampires and werewolves: chick flick. Red Riding Hood: chick flick. The sinking of the Titanic: chick flick. Red Sox Nation: chick flick. Shouldn't us guys get a warning label? Please Please, leave Star Trek alone!!!

The product placement in the movie was higher than normal, Coke, Red Bull, Cremora, Planet Hollywood to name a few. If we list other movies, we would have to use scientific notaion.

Jack Black, mail room boy, has a crush on the travel editor at the newspaper where he is employed. He ends up writing a story for her which lands him trip to the Bermuda Triangle. This in turn sends him to Lilliput where he ends up helping a lowly commoner in love with the princess. Not too difficult to figure out the symbolism. Jack has the Lilliputians construct items similar to our own. While there is humor in this, as well humor in Jack's fascination with Star Wars and Guitar Hero. However, the movie lacks the biting political satire of the original tale, something they could of done if they had a half decent script writer.

No nudity, unless you count Jack Black's butt crack, no sex, no f-bombs. Jack crudely puts out a fire through urination. Looks like it was made for tweens.

Having read the reviews on here, I have seen a wide variety of complaints.

What was my biggest complaint? The story itself. The focus is mainly in Lilliput - just a few minutes of the movie was in Brobdingnag, and there was NOTHING of Laputa or the talking horses or anything else. This took away from the story a lot, and trivialized it. Jack Black was funny, but the Lilliput story arc had so much useless filler added to it that it defeated the story - I wish the writing had been more faithful to the book.

For a really great visual telling of Gulliver's Travels, try the one with Ted Danson. It was a made-for-TV movie series, but it actually did a pretty darned awesome job with Johnathan Swift's original tale and was creative and fun. Here it is.

No it's not a movie for adults. This is for kids. A giant jack black falls down... seat first and smushes down right on a tiny soldier .. Dead on target.

Is that kids fare to you? My kids laughed and laughed. It was innocent humor with a good message about life's twists and turns and overcoming first impressions.

I took my children to see this movie at the cinema very reluctantly. The book is a masterpiece (one of my favourite books) and my children got to know the meaning of the work 'travesty' which I muttered every time they begged me to take them to see this Jack Black vehicle.

I relented and have to say that I actually really enjoyed it very much. Clearly the story has been updated and Gulliver is basically a slacker mailroom boy who dreams of impressing his boss, an editor in a New York travel magazine. He ends up taking a boat through the Bermuda Triangle and ends up in Lilliput, a kind of Ruritanian country, where he makes some kind of success mainly by urinating on the castle when it is on fire and saving the king of Lilliput.

There are some brilliant comic performances by Jack Black and Chris O'Dowd as well as Emily Blunt. You also have Billy Connolly and Catherine Tate (a bit underused) as the king and queen of Lilliput.

Anyway we now have the DVD and are still enjoying watching it.

With some humorous lines, this lacks from Jack Black's normal shenanigans. Not enough heart or laughter for me to give it more stars.

While having little to do with Jonathan Swift's 18th century story, Gulliver's Travels is a funny movie (especially if you're drunk). The cast really sell this returd. Jack Black (Shallow Hal, Tenacious D, Kung Fu Panda, School of Rock), Chris O'Dowd (Bridesmaids), Billy Connolly (Billy), Jason Segel (Despicable Me, Forgetting Sarah Marshall), Amanda Peet (Saving Silverman) and Emily Blunt all work to make this film bearable.

Recommended to rent, at least.

Skizaa.
