If it sounds like a bad idea, you don't know the half of it.

Jack Black's amazing comic energy, as seen in films like 'School of Rock' and 'Nacho Libre,' seems a bit muted in 'Gulliver's Travels.' I expected more from him here.

Don't bother travelling to your cinema to see it.

Jonathan Swift's witty 18th-century satire becomes a witless 21st-century star vehicle for Jack Black and his by-now stale shtick.

Rob Letterman [has] taken Swift's satire on the inanities of his own age and turned the story into a celebration of the most imbecilic aspects of contemporary junk culture.

The kids will be momentarily distracted by the cheap laughs to not notice the sub-par special effects, drab plotting and tiresomeness of Black's man-child antics.

Jonathan Swift's scathing satire has been updated into a silly, slapstick, contemporary parody aimed at tiny tots.

If you've been possessed of a burning desire to behold Jack Black's belly flab in 3D, then I am delighted to announce that your moment has arrived.

There is laziness at every turn -- in the writing, in the acting, in the filmmaking. Don't reward these yahoos.

From the insipid script to Black's inability to convey a character with whom even the least grinchy among us might sympathize, it's just one wrong move after another.

Unfunny, unconvincing, too much jiggling, not enough story.

Hardly classic comedy but snickering teens and small people may be charmed.

Rubbish-looking CG effects fail to enliven proceedings, though the comedy bar-lowering sight of Gulliver relieving himself to extinguish a fire at least works as a potent symbol of the film's attitude to classic literature.

A big idea reaps small dividends in a comedy fantasy that's only likely to score laughs from the tiniest audience members.

I will tell you there's a cast credit for a character described only as "Butt-crack man." Consider yourself warned.

The film stumbles along a predictable path, and there is an audible wince when Gulliver says, "These little people have grown large in my heart."
