Gulliver's Travels - DVD Review and Giveaway

DVD Synopsis:

A hilarious zero-to-hero story about a larger-than-life Average Joe, Gulliver's Travels sails on to 2-disc DVD with Gullivar's Fun Pack and 3-disc Triple Play with Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Copy from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment on April 19, 2011.  This family-friendly misadventure features side-splitting moments with epic wedgies, Lilliputian foosball, and a square-off duel with a robot.

Jack Black (Kung Fu Panda, School of Rock) brings his irreverent humor to this adventure-comedy based on the classic tale.  To impress the pretty newspaper travel editor Darcy (Amanda Peet, 2012), an underachieving mailroom clerk named Gullivar (Black) takes a writing assignment traveling to Bermuda.  When a shipwreck lands him on the fantastical island of Lilliput, he transforms into a giant - in size and ego.  Gulliver's tall tales and heroic deeds win the hearts of the tiny Lilliputians, but when he loses it all and puts his newfound friends in peril, Gulliver must find a way to undo the damage.  Through it all, Gulliver may just learn that it's how big you are on the inside that counts.  Gulliver's Travels also stars Jason Segel, Emimly Blunt, Amanda Peet, and Chris O'Dowd.

For fun, you can look around and read about the land of Lilliput with Frommer's Lilliput Travel Guide.

My Review:

Going along with other movies that he's done, Jack Black has a good time with the film and delivers laughs and slapstick moments.  He stars as Lemuel Gulliver and gets sucked into the land of Lilliput, a place in the Bermuda Triangle, when he tries to woo a female he's infatuated with.  In Lilliput he becomes a giant and meets tiny-sized town occupants.  The story isn't filled with a meaningful plot, but it isn't meant to be.  It's meant to be a fun, lighthearted, humorous movie and it carried through on that.  My boys and husband especially loved the silliness of it all.  There are a few references to the word "lame ass" which I could've done without but, generally speaking, the movie was a fun watch.

Win It!

One person will win Gulliver's Travels on DVD.
