Gulliver's Travels

2

Jack Black's anarchic adventure is a poor imitation of the original

Gulliver review

If  you’ve any affection for Jonathan Swift’s classic tale, run for the hills.

The book’s satire on the absurdity of man is traded here for the cheesy message that all Jack Black’s mailroom man Gulliver needs to do is believe in himself – and that’s before the buffoon starts cavorting around to Edwin Starr’s ‘war.’

The kid-friendly tone may excuse some of the naffness, but certainly not the phoned-in performances by a Brit supporting cast – with the exceptions of villain Chris o’Dowd and princess Emily Blunt.
