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.
WHO KNOWS why I even put this in my netflix queue years ago to receive in my fuckin mailbox to watch, it was horrendous
Very standard, safe stuff. Jack Black plays the same character he always plays and predictability ensues.
This is absolutely stupid. I love it!
why would anyone want another times square?
love the book...had some funny moments, but totally lost the heart of the story...mildly entertaining.
Why did you have to ruin a good story Jack Black?
Jack black is the poor man's adam sandler. Directors think he can just show up and his movies will make money. This was so terrible I wish I could give it less than a half a star. Adam sandler though has turned into the poor mans adam sandler. gone are the days where he could phone it in and his movies would make a 100 million dollars. Of course he keeps movie on. He found Netflix will give him a pile of money for new content.
Not sure if Jack Black ever cared...
From now on, when people ask me which famous figure I'd bring back from the dead, I'll say Jonathon Swift. Not because I think he's a massively important dude. Because I want to see the look on his face when he watches an adaptation of his novel, and witnesses Gulliver, "The President of Awesome", get a wedgie from a giant robot in Not Times Square. "And you and Captain Sparrow defeated the Joker and Magneto!", the King of Lilliput will cry, as Swift asks to go back to his grave.
Totally serviceable for families, the intended audience, and actually pretty funny at times thanks to the well-considered casting. Just, man, they really shouldn't have called it Gulliver's Travels.
