Gulliver's Travels is directed by Rob Letterman, and it stars Jack Black, Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, and Chris O'Dowd in a fantasy adventure comedy about a guy that works in a mail room, and wanted to impress a lady by going to an island that she wanted for him to go so that he can write about it, and he got himself in a boat accident that took him to an island that's surrounded by very small people. I only wanted to come back to this film because it's co-written by Nicholas Stoller, who's one of my favorite comedy directors, and I wanted to see why this got negative reviews. While I understand why critics and people weren't necessarily on the positive boat for it, I still thought it was a decent enough flick. Jack Black is great in it that he saves the film with his comedic timing. The jokes in this are relatively funny and amusing, but there are some stupid jokes that I didn't like. The effects look pretty good, even though there were some effects that I know that doesn't seem to be faithful to the source material, although I don't think it was trying to be. You can tell where the movie is going in many moments, and it has one of those tropes where you know it's going to lead to it. Gulliver's Travels is a good enough time for me that I would see it again.

It only took me 30 minutes to realize how lame this movie really is. Of course it doesn't help that it stars Jack Black, whom I'm not a huge fan of. It has a substantial cast who do their best with the terrible material. It does have some fairly impressive visuals, but that doesn't make for a great movie.

Not the most ground-breaking modern re-reading of Jonathan Swift's classic possible, but Rob Letterman's "Gulliver's Travels" is a fun picture. Jack Black is Jack Black once more, energetic and funny as always, and is supported by a delicious host of actors. It's an entertaining little comedy (no pun intended), with several uproarious moments, but the main impression is that Gulliver just got Jack Black-ed big time... and personally I don't see a problem with that whatsoever.

This reminds me of another older movie that I liked better.

Jack Black letting himself be Jack Black can lead to entertaining results as in the excellent School Of Rock. But having him play Gulliver in Gulliver's Travels? That's a stretch. Most of the time, the two don't connect, and it's mostly a weary affair.

A failed attempt to make Gulliver's Lilliputian experience relevant for modern viewers.

Unfortunately, Gulliver's Travels fails to do anything remotely original - and, even through a decent leading role from Jack Black and supporting from Emily Blunt - lacks hugely in anything of substance that made the first such a huge hit. A greatly disappointing movie, using CGI instead of good writing.
Verdict: D+

Gulliver's travels is such a god bad movie!
The Book Adaptation to film at it's 2nd worst apart from The Cat In The Hat.
20% Movies are Very Bad, But Not bad that you can't watch it in the cinema.
0% Movies do that shit! Still, It's Very Insulting!

My Score Opinion: well, i suppose, not 0%, 9%. Absolutely without a doubt 0.5/10

While the story is weak and the movie is easily forgettable it's not that bad, but it's not a must-watch either. If you know what you're getting yourself into, this movie shouldn't be bad or a disappointment.

With not enough aspirations, It offers entertainment and nothing more.

It's a pretty dumb movie but I had a good time watching it. I haven't read the book but it seems like they really weren't trying to follow it. If you think Jack Black is funny, you'll find some enjoyment in this one.

Gulliver's Travels is simply bad comedy that fails to deliver something special
½ July 8, 2015
A movie not for those who cherished the writings. Instead, "Gulliver's Travels" is a goofy, light-hearted comedy about what an anti-social geek would really do in this modern twist some can enjoy.
½ June 9, 2015
It's fun for kids, but it's not enjoyable as a modernization of the classic novel, or as a parody of it.
