Gulliver’s Travels - A treat for your kids in the New Year

Jonathan Swift’s well known children’s story of the adventurous Gulliver who lands in the land of Lilliputs gets a modern day twist in this comic adventure story. Jack Black plays travel writer Lemuel Gulliver, a geek who has not made much progress in the newspaper he works for, nor in his love life, as he pines away silently for his travel editor. Upon taking the initiative to ask for a travel assignment, he is sent to Bermuda and lands up on the island of Liliput, inhabited by tiny people. Gulliver is captured by the brave Liliputs and turned over to their King Theodore and daughter Princess Mary by the General. Gulliver is sent to do slave labour where he meets Horatio, who loves Princess Mary, but cannot marry her as he is a commoner.

When a rival island attacks the Liliputs, Gulliver rescues them. In his new role as the hero, he gets the Liliputs to build him a luxury home and all sorts of other fantasies including a giant theater. The General resents Gulliver and his new found stardom, and there is trouble for Gulliver which he survives. He also wins his lady love when she comes looking for him.

Directed by Rob Letterman ‘Gulliver’s Travels’ stars the incredibly funny Jack Black, Emily Blunt as Princess Mary and Jason Siegel as Horatio.
