Jack Black is larger than life in this epic comedy-adventure based on the classic tale. When a shipwreck lands a mailroom clerk named Gulliver (Black) on the fantastical island of Lilliput, he transforms into a giant. Gulliver’s tall tales and heroic deeds win the hearts of the tiny Lilliputians, but when he carelessly puts his newfound friends in peril, Gulliver must find a way to fix things.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics 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.

Amusing adventure for fans of Jack Black and silly jokes.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this modernization of Jonathan Swift's classic satire features everything audiences expect from family-targeted Jack Black movies: physical (including potty) comedy, minor language, and lots of references to popular culture -- particularly movies and music. The sexuality is mostly tame, but there are references to a woman's breasts (as reason enough to marry her), some innuendo, and a few brief kisses. Language includes insults like "stupid" and "lame ass" (repeated several times in one scene). Expect several mentions of/allusions to Mac products, among other brand names. On the bright side, kids should learn about the value of honesty, believing in yourself, and looking beyond someone's status.
