The Only Redeeming things was Emily Blunt

This movie was pathetic - such a HUGE disappointment. I'm not sure what the producers and directors were thinking???? I don't think they were thinking. Emily Blunt is a GREAT actress but wow, such a HUGE disappointment. NEVER AGAIN! Jack Black wasn't even funny. Why was he even considered? Why didn't they stick to the novel? I don't know what else to say but UGH! The story did not even being to resemble the awesome book. I'm sure the author is rolling over in his grave. So, this was pathetic, disgusting, stupid, disappointing... Am I forgetting anything? Oh yes, STUPID! Oh and don't even think about seeing this pathetic piece of - I can't even call it work, because its not a good piece of work. It's a sorry piece of trash. I honestly could not finish watching this and forbade my grand kids from watching it. Instead we went to the library and got the old version, that goes more by the book and is charming and interesting. I suggest you do the same. Please don't waste your time on this trash. Have a nice day.

Not the Classic Version!

For the best re-telling of the "Gulliver" classic, the 1996 live-action TV movie with Ted Danson, produced by Jim Henson, remains the best. This one is very cute but bears little resemblance to the classic version. Only two worlds are involved, The Lilliputians (who have electricity!) and an island of giants where Gulliver briefly becomes an unwilling doll house captive of a screaming, spoiled giant brat. The other worlds are not visited. Some mild similarities here and there to the classic. The "little people" have all but forgotten what started their war across the pond. Jack puts out a roaring fire by the only means possible-urination. (Yes, that's from the book!) Some other tasteless humor as well. It ends up being a parody of several things, including Times Square, "School of Rock" and "Iron Man". Where is this Magical Place? Why the Bermuda Triangle, of course. A bit cleaned-up on cable (which is good) with the usual 1/2 hour of commercials added. Clever use of the song "War, What is it good for?" Otherwise, a lot of fun but not meant to be taken seriously at all. Especially for Jack Black fans. Also, how did he ever get cell-service way out there?

Jack Black's slacker act: $112 million and all they got was the star mugging in front of a green screen

The reason why most modern movies are so dim-witted is obvious after watching Rob Letterman's version of Jonathan Swift's "Gulliver's Travels": the film has been made by restless kids for restless kids...and if you're not a restless kid, the inane dialogue ("Dude, that is harsh!"), the hammy star performance and the elaborate but familiar special effects are not enough to hold interest. We know so much about how effects-oriented movies are made these days that to have Jack Black constantly interacting with the Lilliputians in the same way (hunched over in front of a green screen and nodding maniacally) offers us no magic, no mystery and no fun. A mailroom worker with a New York City newspaper invents a talent for writing and is immediately given an assignment: to explore the Bermuda Triangle! (there's a current topic burning on everyone's mind). His boat is sucked into a waterspout and he washes up on the city of Lilliput, inhabited by tiny people--and a princess in danger. Screenwriters Joe Stillman and Nicholas Stoller specialize in a sort of frat boy/post-druggie sense of humor meant to tickle 10-year-olds. In this case, Black was the actor for them, as the star is still doing the same sloppy, cool-nerd shtick he specialized in over a decade ago. The whole picture feels like an awful rerun, with cheap, prodding jokes; at one point, Black goads lovestruck Horatio into dancing to the Prince song "Kiss", but instead of laughing we're wondering why the producers used a sound-alike version of the tune in place of the original (too expensive on a budget of $112 million?). Had Black suddenly started dancing too, it would be about as logical as anything else happening in "Gulliver's Travels". With nothing fresh added to the story and nothing interesting happening from a visual standpoint, this unfunny fiasco aimed at the collective hip-factor will only appeal to restless kids--undiscriminating ones. * from ****
