Time to bring out the child in you

Adapted from the classic satire by Jonathan Swift, “Gulliver’s Travels” has Jack Black playing Lemuel Gulliver, a goofy and boastful mail room clerk, with no ambition. Black charms in this character with the help of his “School of Rock” like comic energy. Amanda Peet, plays his love interest, (Darcy Silverman) the travel editor. To impress Darcy, Gulliver takes on an assignment involving the Bermuda triangle, that gets him sucked into a whirlpool and washed ashore on Lilliput, an island inhibited by little people. He manages to win the heart of this little kingdom by protecting their land from their little enemies. He also manages to help Horatio, a commoner, to woo the Lilliputian princess (Emily Blunt). Jason Segal, of the “How I Met Your Mother” fame adds a nice touch as Horatio. But Gulliver’s happy new adventure becomes interesting when the general of the Lilliputian army (Chris O’ Dowd) gets jealous of all the attention Gulliver is getting and wages a war against his own people. Meanwhile Darcy gets sucked into the same whirlpool and ends up prisoner in Lilliput. Will this ordinary mail room clerk manage to save Lilliput and his girl? Well, you just have to find out yourself.


Although Jack Black packs in some great laughs, his transformation from a nothing to a brave hero becomes hard to believe in places. If the script was closer to the source, maybe it wouldn’t have seemed like it lacked character. The same goes for the rest of the royal cast. The 3D element too seemed wasted at best.

So 3D or no-3D, Jack Black fans can definitely go watch him lend his all American comic energy to the character. As for parents with young kids, its a fun way to bring in the New Year. But stay away from the cinemas if you’re expecting it to be anywhere close to its source material. It’s an adaptation meant to appeal to this century’s 3D effects loving kids and youngsters only.

So if you’re a kid, use your pester power and enjoy the film. If your an adult, sit back and let Jack Black appeal to the child in you.
