Gulliver's Travels is a comedy where Lemuel Gulliver, a travel writer, gets an assignment that takes him to the Liliput island, instead of Bermuda, where he was intended to go initially. On the island of Liliput he finds a nation of tiny citizens and his adventures start from here.
The director of the movie is Rob Letterman, who also has made animation movies like Monsters vs Aliens or Shark Tale. The writers of the movie are Nicholas Stoller and Joe Stillman. Stoller has experience from previous movies like Get Him To The Greek, Fun With Dick And Jane and Yes Man, while Stillman has worked on Shrek 1 & 2 and Planet 51. With this experienced group behind Gulliver's Travels, it's sure to be a successful comedy, and I loved the end result.
The stars of the movie are Jack Black, which has a lot of experience with comedies, Emily Blunt and Jason Segel, which you probably know from the TV series How I Met Your Mother. Billy Connoly and Amanda Peet are two other well known actors which you will recognize when you watch the movie.
Like many other movies with Jack Black in them, the movie focuses on him quite a bit, following his body gestures and facial expressions. He is a great comedy actor, which we admired in movies like School of Rock or Tropic Thunder, among many others.
It's a very nice comedy, perfect for this holiday season, with a nice ending, so it doesn't spoil anyone's spirit.
