From Amazon.co.uk

Gulliver's Travels is about as marginal as the trailers suggest; it's a tepidly entertaining, irreverent, and sometimes crass comedy starring Jack Black that takes some gigantic liberties with Jonathan Swift's classic story about the land of Lilliput and its tiny inhabitants. Mailroom loser Lemuel Gulliver (Jack Black) is stuck in a dead-end job and living a dead-end life until the promotion of a fellow employee spurs him to speak up and take action. While a trip to the Bermuda Triangle may not be the date with crush Darcy Silverman (Amanda Peet) that Gulliver had envisioned, the voyage promises to take his career in a new direction, and it eventually delivers him to a kingdom known as Lilliput, which is populated by miniature people. After initially being captured and locked away in a dungeon, Gulliver wins the hearts of the Lilliputian people by saving their princess (Emily Blunt) from being kidnapped and rescuing their king (Billy Connolly) from a fire in a most unorthodox and unsavoury way, and he quickly finds himself in a position of gigantic influence. Problem is, Gulliver is completely unprepared and unqualified for his new leadership roles, both on the personal and professional levels, and his ineptitude puts himself and all of Lilliput in extreme danger. Grade-school humour abounds in this fairly mindless film, something Jack Black always excels at, but viewers will find that the chuckles and the message about the power of believing in oneself fade equally as fast as the credits roll. (Ages 9 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

A fast-paced comedy adventure showing what can happen when you go up in the world....literally! Jack Black stars as Lemuel Gulliver, an underachieving mail room worker who finds himself washed ashore the fantasy land of Lilliput, populated by a tiny civilisation known as Lilliputians. With the Lilliputians having no idea of the modern world Gulliver is able to reinvent himself as their hero by impressing them with his size, superior knowledge and incredible inventions like the iPod.

1.0 out of 5 stars Travel back to the shop.... 27 Sep 2011
By D WHITE
Format:Blu-ray
First off, this mini review is based purely on the 3D BluRay version.

Secondly, why a lot of people are here in the first place is to see how good the 3D element is.

To cut things short, there is virtually no 3D. I have 7 3D movies in my collection and this is by far the worse one... in fact I would go as far as saying it is NOT 3D!

Thirdly. I am a massive Jack Black fan, I'm almost a fanatic! However, this is the worse film I have seen him in. There were a couple of really funny moments, lol one moment (when he has a wee!!!). The movie is a 4.5/10 for me.

My Amazon rating is purely based on the virtually non existence of 3D, but even if it had more 3D it would only get 2, 3 at the very best(some nice vibrant colours in movie + I have seen worse movies).

Animated movies, and Avatar are the only 3D movies at the moment that have impressed me (I'm hooked on 3D gaming on my PS3 though!).

If you must have this in your collection, then I wholeheartedly recommend buying the 2D version if you can get it much cheaper.

"Marmite" film alert - some people will like this and others will hate it.

Most of those who like Jack Black's style of humour, and many of those who enjoyed the original UNCENSORED satire as Jonathan Swift actually wrote it - NOT the sanitised version usually shown to kids - will find this film at least reasonably entertaining.

Most of those who don't like Jack Black's style, and those who imagine that one of the abbreviated (e.g. heavily bowlderised) versions of "Gullivers' Travels" is a classic book, will be disappointed.

This film is a 21st-century adaptation of the first two books of Swift's 1726 satire by the same name. Jack Black's central character, Lemuel Gulliver, is a postroom junior on a New York magazine who, trying to impress the travel editor (Amanda Peet) on whom he has a massive crush, volunteers to undertake a writing assignment on boat in the Bermuda Triangle. After running into a freak storm Gulliver finds himself in a strange world where humans can be very different sizes ...

Swift's book works on three different levels

1) At the most obvious level, "Gulliver's Travels" was one of the first adventure novels ever written (it was to some extent a response to "Robinson Crusoe" which had come out a few years before.) This film roughly follows the same story, though it is more of a comedy or farce than a thriller.

2) On another level, Swift is making observations on the human condition. When Gulliver finds himself among the much smaller Liliputian people, who see him as a giant, then among the much larger Brobdingnagians, to whom he is no larger than a toy, this is a metaphor for the way we can see ourselves as tiny cogs in the wheel of society or try to become important and make a difference for good or evil.

5.0 out of 5 stars lighthearted fun 15 Aug 2011
By J. Todd
Format:DVD
I bought this for my 12 year old daughter but did'nt fancy watching it myself. She watched it and thought it was great so we thought it was worth trying it. It was really good.Nothing like I thought it would be.Very light, easy watching. Billy Connoly and Catherine Tate only had small parts but suited them.Worth buying.

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
I'll come clean on "Gulliver's Travels" - I bought it because Emily Blunt is in it.

I have a thing for the woman like Obama has for golf - like Johnny Rotten has for Emerson, Lake & Palmer - like Steven Seagal has for shiny guns and spouting philosophy with a kitchen knife in his hand. I know I shouldn't like it – I know it's fundamentally evil (and the wife wouldn’t approve either) - but I just can't help myself...

As fluff goes (and forgiving the gigantic liberties taken with Swift's story) - "Gulliver's Travels" is a huge amount of fun. Jack Black is ideal in the lead role with Billy Connolly and Chris O'Dowd hamming it up as Lilliputians of varying birth - while our Em just looks ravishing all the time even if she is trying to converse with a man the size of the Empire State building. It’s a bit of a hoot really and better than it had any right to be.

However - if you're a fan too - a word in your over-sized shelllike. The ‘US’ BLU RAY on 20th Century Fox is REGION A LOCKED – so it won’t play on our machines unless they’re chipped to be ‘all regions’ (which few are).

Buy the cheap-as-chips UK version – it’s a looker on the format - and like little old me - you can dream of princesses far away who don’t have an issue with size…

2.0 out of 5 stars poor 30 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
Boring. Rubbish acting. Ridiculous Jack Black film about Jack Black being... Jack Black (but with small people). Even my children (boys aged 8 and 6) were unimpressed by it. Did we need this re-make? No. Terrible, terrible script too. The actors must have been cringing with shame as they spoke. No doubt they kept a bank statement in their pockets to remind themselves why they had agreed to do it.
