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

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 cringed several times at what he was hearing. The humor was a bit crass, with language such as, "I'm a big lame ass", "It blows", "Wanna shoot some poos, go for some brews?", "Hey sexy", "Stone cold fox" and "I find you incredibly sexy". There's also a boat named "Ship Happens." In one scene the princess asks her fiancee what he likes about her and he points to her breasts. When Gulliver falls on the ground, he lands on an unfortunate Lilliputian. It's apparent that the little man goes inside Gulliver's bottom (gross!). There's also a scene where Gulliver puts out a fire by urinating on a building and several people. Overall, I liked the movie for me and would have no problem taking my 12 year old niece, but NOT my 7 yr old.

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

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

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.
