Lemuel Gulliver has been working in the mail room of a New York daily newspaper for the past ten years. Afraid to put himself out there, he considers himself a loser, as do all his peers. One day, after having finally had enough, he decides to declare his flame to the beautiful Darcy Silverman, the newspaper's travel editor and one of Gulliver's only friends...only to chicken out at the last minute and instead tell her that he'd like to try his hand at writing a column. Darcy accepts and sends him on an assignment to the Bermuda Triangle. There, Gulliver becomes shipwrecked and ends up on the island of Liliput, where he is twelve taller than the tallest man. For the first time, Gulliver has people looking up to him...Written by
The Lilliputian palace is in reality Blenheim Palace, which is where former UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill was born. See more »

The end credits are presented as part of newspaper clips from Gulliver's column. Surrounding the credits is actual text from the original novel by Jonathan Swift, and mentions some adventures from the book that are not featured in the movie, such as the encounters with the subhuman "yahoos".

If I could give negative points for this movie, I would!
This was, without any doubt, one of the worst movies I have seen in a very, very long time. Awful, to say the least. Jack Black is mocking everyone with an IQ over 50 with this movie. So if you consider yourself being dumber than... a monkey? an ant? Then go and watch this movie!
The plot is pathetic and extremely banal. A monkey could write a better plot given a typing machine, one hour and some bananas as reward. Do people even get paid for writing such a sh**ty plot?
I am truly disappointed with Jack Black. This movie had barely nothing to do with Gulliver's travels. Where was the satire? And did they have a robot and a lot of other advanced technological machinery in the real Gulliver's travels?
WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DESTROY THE GOOD NAME OF GULLIVER'S TRAVELS? WHY?
You do not have to mix everything together. Robots are great! Gulliver's travels is great! But them together with Jack Black... Awful! Completely disgusting!
