Consensus: Though Jack Black is back 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.

[A] dumb excuse for a movie.

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."

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

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

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.

Unnecessary, preposterous, and hardly ever paying a homage to the original tale, this re-imagining of "Gulliver's Travels" is boring and stupid.… More
