As based on Jonathan Swift's classic satire, 'Gulliver's Travels' is appropriately construed here as the story of a big man telling tall tales. But of course the big man is played here by that chubby rascal Jack Black, and of course his Lemuel Gulliver is a lowly mail-room worker at a bustling New York City newspaper. Of course he has a crush on travel editor Darcy (Amanda Peet), and of course he plaigirizes writing samples in order to impress her, and of course he takes her up on a Bermuda Triangle assignment in lieu of telling her the truth.
