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."

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.

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

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.

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