Every film that has ever been nominated for a Razzie Award in any category.
Something big is going down.
Travel writer Lemuel Gulliver takes an assignment in Bermuda, but ends up on the island of Liliput, where he towers over its tiny citizens.
From brilliant sociopolitical critique to *faaaaaart*, *baaaaaaarf* and *pooooooop* in 200 lbs. (I'm estimating Jack Black's weight there)
Though Jack Black is doing what he does best, Gulliver's Travels largely fails to do any justice to its source material, relying instead on juvenile humor and special effects.
Halfway enjoyable, yet lacks any heart to sustain it. Too full of fat jokes and fat jokes. From genius sociopolitical commentary to a film for 5 year olds. Though, it was good to see T.J. Miller and Emily Blunt.
This movies plot is all too familiar, the whole story has no originality and you could predict it word for word, but there are some mildly funny moments, but when Gulliver gets stuck on another island where he is the little person, that's when this movie gets from bad to worse, I don't need to say anything more about this film, basically a crappy Hollywood remake of a classic story.
Slightly more fun than drinking the contents of a colostomy bag, but not much.
Frankly an abject waste of everybody's time. Jack Black wheels out the same, tired 'loser with a heart of gold' shtick that wore thin years ago, plonked into less an update of the classic story of Gulliver than a fetid abomination of story, script and direction. The remarkable thing is how good a cast it has - Emily Blunt (the only one to escape with some dignity), Chris O'Dowd (out to sink his career it seems), Billy Connolly (who just looks confused), Catherine Tate, James Fucking Corden and Amanda Peet, plus Jason Segel - though why he's delivering a 'Keanu in Dracula' bad British accent, Lord only knows. It's quite the waste of some damn fine talent, most of whom I can assume needed the paycheque.
See it if you're bored. Actually, no, just stare at the wall - better entertainment.
The cinematic equivalent of white noise.
In this modern take on the classic tale, Jack Black is Lemuel Gulliver, a mailroom clerk at a New York newspaper. After Gulliver bluffs his way into assignment writing about the secrets of the Bermuda Triangle, he is hurtled to an undiscovered land, Lilliput. A young man who never left the mail room becomes a real hero in this land of little people telling tall tales, taking credit for his world's greatest inventions, and placing himself at the centre of its most historic events. Gulliver's position is enhanced even further when he saves king's life and later defeats Lilliput's enemies... until the truth is revealed!
I have to admit that this wasn't the best performance of Jack Black, Jason Segel,…
Jack Black should come complete with a doctor's note to use only in small doses. I can tolerate him in supporting roles or cameos, but "Gulliver's Travels" is more Jack than anyone could be expected to withstand. He basically plays the same character in every movie, and here, it wears thin somewhere around the thirty minute mark He appears to simply be relying on his old schtick, and for a movie that was obviously designed to finally catapult him onto the A-list, you've got to be better than this. He's going through the motions here.
In fact, everything about this picture feels decidedly B movie-ish for an alleged big holiday movie. The special effects are cheap and give the film…
Intresting premise and look visually nice, based off one of my favorite adventure stories
Movie was worth a watch?
I enjoyed jacks modern day personality interacting with the ye old people of Lilliput and the change it had from old times to modern day
I laughed at parts too
And the robot was cool
So it's a meh/urf watch it while drunk if ya want to make it better
1/10: "Unfunniest" comedy ever. The worst part is that it feels like Jack Black is reprising his role from School Of Rock (2003). All the jokes are lame and stale. Should have won the 2011 Razzies Worst Picture and Actor Award.
Jack Black is brilliant in everything he does and this is no exception. The clueless townspeople of Lilliput and their naivety to the outside world is the main funny point for this movie. The story of the love relationship between the princess and Horatio was adorable. The film stuck to the original story for the most part which was good and the casting (especially king and queen) was superb. Loved all the famous faces involved in this including James Cordon and Billy Connely.
My review -- this film is now on DVD and it does have a reasonable profit margin. Now where shall I begin? I really wanted to enjoy this film, just because of some of the cast listing which I have put at the top of this review but sadly I struggled with this project on so many levels. The comedy level is generally repetitive or from the same genre as the previous joke or reference this pattern repeats itself practically on a continuous loop, I am very much aware that this project has a certificate of PG, but most of the comedy influences are from sketch scene variety which after some time has this strong smell of just being juvenile.…
A fairy tale of the Walter Mitty movie.
Normal popcorn movie. There are better ones with Jack Blavk.
