A good, ambitious adaptation of the source material. Like the book, it gives one a lot to think about. I haven't watched a film that challenges the viewer to consider difficult questions so effectively in some time. The acting and the effects are also great.
Ted Danson plays Gulliver who returns from his travels as a giant and as a small person.
It jumped back and forth between the past and the present way too quickly. Just when you get involved in the story, it switches again. They did use parts from all four chapters of the book, though they rushed through most of them, even with a three hour running time. Ted Danson inexplicably doesn't have a British accent, which makes me question everything I know about life. Luckily Mary Steenburgen went overboard enough on HER whiny accent to cover the both of them.
