Film #310: GULLIVER'S TRAVELS
1 out of 5 stars
If you’ve ever wonder what a person looks like at the very moment when they sell their soul off to the highest bidder, then this is a flick for you. And the great thing about it is… you get to see it done not once, but literally five times. First seller: Jack Black who proves he will do ANYTHING - shit on anything he’s accomplished in his career - for money. And then there’s Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Amanda Peet, Billy Connolly who abandon things like humility, self respect, and ever being given any sort of credibility all for what could only have seemed like a bad idea… even in the scriptwriting stage of development. GULLIVER’S TRAVELS is a fiasco of the highest order. Unfunny, badly written, and ineptly directed, the film is a steaming pile of excrement that no one can save. And by the time Black - and I’m not kidding here - stops a war by singing and dancing Edwin Starr’s song “WAR (What Is It Good For),” you literally want to break your Tenacious D records and stab yourself in the eye with the shards. I vow now, before you all… should I ever meet Jack Black, I will punch him in the neck for making this.
