On paper as a log line this film is something which would make most of the writers in Hollywood exclaim why wasnt I the first one to think of this idea

Jack Black as Gulliver. Thats it & the idea doesnt develop after that. It just stays as Jack Black as Gulliver. I cant believe that the writer of Shrek (Joe Stillman) wrote this film along with Nicholas Stoller (Yes Man, Fun with Dick & Jane). Director Rob Letterman ( Monsters v/s Aliens & Shark Tale) doesnt rise above the script . It seemed neither the writers or directors were interested in this project. Except a few jokes here and there which makes you smile and maybe grin a bit nothing else works in the film. Fans of How I met your Mother might be interested to watch two of it's actors (Jason Segel & Amanda Peet). The guy sitting next to me was very excited to see Jason Segel. But I warn you they have nothing much to do. What can one do if the entire screen & screen time is hogged by Jack Black. So you see him extinguishing fire by pissing on it, fighting a robot which looks like a poor mans transformer. The 3D as always is a waste. I saw most of the film without the glasses and didnt miss a thing. The Indian Gulliver (Javed Jaafri in Jajantaram Mamantaram) was more entertaining & funny than this one.

Final few words: If your idea of entertainment is to watch Jack Black huge tummy wiggling like a jelly bean in 3D this one is meant for you. The rest can rent it on dvd and watch it when you have nothing else to do for 93 mins.
