Storyline Heading
When we meet Black's Lemuel Gulliver, he is a small man in a big pond -- the monstrous canyons of Manhattan, where he toils in a clerical position at a newspaper. He talks a big game, but he's achieved very little because he is always afraid he will fail.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Adventure Comedy - This is an effects-heavy family fantasy comedy very loosely based on the literary adventure of the same name. This is very much a showcase for Jack Black's usual wacky screen persona, with everyone and everything else secondary. There is some crude humor, but on the whole this is safe viewing for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average Still, the chief sin committed by Gulliver's Travels is not that it's a poor adaptation but that its entertainment value is almost nonexistent.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good It just occurred to me that you may be imagining this is an animated film, and that Jack Black is voicing Lemuel Gulliver. Not at all. This is live action, and despite the 3-D, it's sorta old-fashioned, not that that's a bad thing.

USA Today Full Review
Average Gulliver's Travels, yet another foray into unnecessary 3-D, is a rehashed mishmash of Jonathan Swift's 18th-century classic. Mostly, it's a vehicle for Jack Black's zany humor.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Lemuel Gulliver (Jack Black) is a lowly mailroom clerk at a New York newspaper. After Gulliver bluffs his way into an assignment writing about the Bermuda Triangle, he goes there only to be transported to an undiscovered land, Lilliput. In this fantastical new world, Gulliver is, at last, a bigger-than-life figure -- in size and ego - especially after he starts telling tall tales, taking credit for his world's greatest inventions, and placing himself at the center of its most historic events. Gulliver's position is enhanced even further when he leads his new friends in a daring battle against their longtime enemies. But when Gulliver loses it all and puts the Lilliputians in peril, he must find a way to undo the damage. Ultimately, Gulliver becomes a true giant among men only when he learns that it's how big you are on the inside that counts.
