Gulliver's Travels Reviews

December 30, 2010
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.

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

December 30, 2010
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.

December 29, 2010
Jonathan Swift's witty 18th-century satire becomes a witless 21st-century star vehicle for Jack Black and his by-now stale shtick.
December 29, 2010
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.
December 28, 2010
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.

Jack Black's adult fans, and all kids, will love this movie for the good-natured fun of it all
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
December 28, 2010
Jonathan Swift's scathing satire has been updated into a silly, slapstick, contemporary parody aimed at tiny tots.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

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.
December 28, 2010
There is laziness at every turn -- in the writing, in the acting, in the filmmaking. Don't reward these yahoos.

December 27, 2010
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
December 27, 2010
A quick, fun, family-friendly fantasy adventure spiced by some nifty visual effects.
| Original Score: 3/5
December 27, 2010
Truly dire...
December 27, 2010
Unfunny, unconvincing, too much jiggling, not enough story.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
December 27, 2010
Hardly classic comedy but snickering teens and small people may be charmed.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 27, 2010
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
December 27, 2010
A big idea reaps small dividends in a comedy fantasy that's only likely to score laughs from the tiniest audience members.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 27, 2010
I will tell you there's a cast credit for a character described only as "Butt-crack man." Consider yourself warned.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
December 27, 2010
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."
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
