Tampa Bay Times
This is what the holidays need: a good, Swift kick in the funny bone.
50
Yet another foray into unnecessary 3-D, is a rehashed mishmash of Jonathan Swift's 18th-century classic. Mostly, it's a vehicle for Jack Black's zany humor.

Empire
A low-grade comedy that'll have Jonathan Swift turning in his grave.

Boxoffice Magazine
A movie that ought to entice people to want to travel with Gulliver instead inveigles them to run from him.

While not the worst in recent 3D films, Gulliver's Travels is more gimmicky than a crackling good yarn.
38
The only arena in which Gulliver's Travels plays an adequate game is in visual effects.

Variety
The story grows more desperate as it goes on.

Those of us who dig the comedian's hyperactive persona may feel that the meter is now officially running on his amiable rocker-doofus act; everyone else will simply marvel that a Christmas season could produce such an unfunny, unentertaining lump of coal.

A movie of such stupendous uninspiration that, watching it, I didn't know whether to be affronted or hornswoggled. Movies this monumentally dreadful, after all, don't come along every day.

The 3-D is cheesy (2.2-D at best) the gags are gross (Gulliver urinates on an 18th-century palace to extinguish a fire) and the production abandons all hope of coherence when the hero fights a climactic battle with a giant robot out of "Transformers."
