Critic Ratings



By Michelle Orange
It's all sweet and very, very silly. I was surprised by the subtleties - both comedic and thematic.

The cast gamely tries to keep up, with the scene-stealing O'Dowd making the strongest impression. Still, it all feels so lazy and familiar...

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...

While not the worst in recent 3D films, Gulliver's Travels is more gimmicky than a crackling good yarn.

At one point, Black puts out a fire by pissing on it. It's my job as a critic to piss on this dumb excuse for a movie. Consider it done.

The 3-D is cheesy (2.2-D at best) the gags are gross (Gulliver urinates on an 18th-century palace to extinguish a fire) and the production...

Better than Orginal-Very Funny-Not for kids under 12

By shakesmcgillicutty
This movie is way better than the original, much funnier and very clever. However, Gulliver's Travel is for the 12+ crowd. I brought my 7 yr old son. Although I'm sure he didn't learn anything new, I...

Not funny

By Beacantor
Jack Black can play just one character in every single movie, and it is getting old....

I was gullible to see this movie

The movie is a silly rendition of the classic Gullivers Travels. Jack Blck acted his role well and so did the supporting cast. The silliness renders it appropriate for young and old alike. A good...

Totally Funny

By superflickster
I took my 9 & 11 yr. old children and laughed the whole way through. All the acting was great. Special effects and cinematography were awesome. Would have liked more 3D effects.. but all in all a fun...

Worth watching

By kate_sexton
Its an ok movie. Relatively entertaining. Not wonderful, not horrid, and definitely NOT "Gulliver's Travels". I was expecting to see so much more than one tiny part of the story....


By allisonbahmer
It was ok. The plot was a little weak though. Although it did have its funny moments, it wasn't Jack Black's greatest film. It's very predictable...

It's hard to remember a worse movie

Okay, my son LOVEs Jack Black, but even he was ready to leave the movie...almost from the start. Stupid plot, worse script, horrible acting. The worst part of all....I paid up for us to go to the...

Oh No Don't Go!

By wannabeactor1
Jack Black was "Jack Black". Some of his antics were mildly entertaining but nothing you have not already seen in "School of Rock" , "Macho Libre", "Shallow Hal" - same reference to 80's Rock n Rock,...

Was okayyyy....

There was a bunch of us that went of different ages and such..and we weren't too impressed with the 3-d effects- could have been better...not much, one person actually said- "was that in 3D" (wearing...
