Gulliver's Travels Reviews

The over the top performances of the well-spoken Lilliputians, and even that of Jack Black, go a long way towards helping make the movie better, but sadly, they just couldn't save the material from itself.

One giant mess.

Family-friendly and entertaining, Gulliver's Travels is lightly amusing but don't expect a mind-blowing affair.

Jack Black's crude, unsophisticated comedy has never much appealed to this reviewer - a scene in which the giant urinates all over comedic great Billy Connolly says it all.

Gulliver's Travels strips the source material down to its recognizable parts and then builds something completely new out of them. Unfortunately, the result is entirely Lilliputian in ambition, even for a children's movie.

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.

A star-studded re-imagining of a classic piece of literature that shoots for the moon, aims for laughs and misses both targets by a country mile.

Las Vegas Weekly

Any of the social commentary in Swift's original version is completely lost, replaced not by more up-to-date satire but by lazy pop-culture references and tired antics.

Even at 83 minutes (plus a three minute cartoon) it's a drag, another 3D movie for kids in which the 3D adds nothing, merely subtracting from parents' wallets.

Black can barely keep a straight face as he gambols from one digital effects sequence to the next.

The chief sin committed by Gulliver's Travels is not that it's a poor adaptation but that its entertainment value is almost nonexistent.

The flaccid torpor of the script shows utter contempt for its audience in every line.

Yes, a giant robot. In Gulliver's Travels. Because - like the carriage chase that Robert Zemeckis plopped into last year's A Christmas Carol - these centuries-old classic tales cry out for loud and obnoxious 21st century special effects.

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

It's numbing to watch the moderate imagination that comes with placing a big man among a shrunken society fade away in favor of gross-out gags, pop-culture references and a sing-along finale more groan-inducing than most.
