    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. show more

    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 Black's zany humor. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    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 abandons all hope of coherence when the hero fights a climactic battle with a giant robot out of "Transformers." show more

    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 that adults may find themselves hoping Black will start to challenge himself again - and the more swiftly the better. show more

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

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

    You may be imagining this is an animated film, and that Jack Black is voicing Lemuel Gulliver. Not at all. This is live action, and despite the 3-D, it's sorta old-fashioned, not that that's a bad thing. show more

    Black was already the world's biggest little kid, and he might be the only actor who could have made this movie such nimble fun. show more

    An overweight Jack Black, and a bow legged Amanda Peet. What a combination!
