Throwaway hangover fodder, big on goofiness and small on invention.

The pitch to remake this was probably four words: Gulliver's Travels Jack Black. No adjectives, no adverbs, and, most of all, no imagination. Fox took the bait, and this Christmas there's something smelling rotten under the tree.

While the film retains the satire of the original story, it goes too far with the pop culture references.

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.

Despite its broad strokes of goofball, sometimes gross-out comedy tailored to Black's gonzo style, the movie does echo some of the classic novel's farcical observances.

This version of 'Gulliver's Travels' is strictly for the little people.

It's a product for undemanding children to consume, one they'll forget pretty quickly after leaving the theater.

There aren't many reasons to see Gulliver's Travels. In trying to fill several different identities, it fails at all of them.
February 10, 2011
Alternately yawningly obvious and under-sketched, the movie never settles on a consistent tone, or takes full comedic advantage of its big-man-in-a-small-land opportunity for steady physical comedy.

[A] dumb excuse for a movie.
January 11, 2011
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.

Jack Black used to be so cool.

Jack Black's abridged version of Jonathan Swift's famed epic fairs slightly better than other recent family adaptations. It's silly and occasionally funny -- not bad for a movie starring a guy who saves an entire city with his urine.

Lilliputian in wit and Brobdingnagian in wretchedness...

Black himself is the whole show here.

As disinterested in itself as Gulliver's Travels seems to be, it's a wonder it ever came into existence at all.

This Jack Black attack is just right for Gulliver's Travels, a kiddie flick with no discernible aspirations.

... a quick, undemanding piece of subliterate junk.
