Storyline

In a contemporary re–imagining of the classic tale, Jack Black stars as Gulliver, a big–talking mailroom clerk who, after he's mistakenly assigned a travel piece on the Bermuda Triangle, suddenly finds himself a giant among men when he washes ashore on the hidden island of Lilliput, home to a population of very tiny people. At first enslaved by the diminutive and industrious Liliputians, and later declared their hero, Gulliver comes to learn that it’s how big you are on the inside that counts.

Trivia

2010 Guide Analysis: "Jonathan Swift's 18th century satire has been translated many times before but usually in mini-series or animated form rather than a live-action feature. So this new adaptation will at least fill that niche, and happens to include a very impressive cast of comedians from the US and UK. Director Rob Letterman's resume though has been as writer/director on Dreamworks animated features like "Monsters vs. Aliens" and "Shark Tale", how he'll do in the live-action arena is anyone's guess."

Taylor Lautner was originally cast as Horatio but was dropped after producers changed their minds and considered him too young. Jason Segel replaced him.

Sarah Michelle Gellar was considered to play Princess of Lilliputia.

Emily Blunt was slated to do "Iron Man 2" but had to pull out due to being contracted by Fox for this film.
