Gulliver's Travel

Why, you ask? Well, what kid wouldn't love to be transported to a faraway land where they not only get to be bigger than everyone else, but also get to reinvent themselves as powerful, dynamic and charismatic?

This new, family-friendly version of the Jonathan Swift book stars Jack Black, Jason Segal and Emily Blunt and takes audiences of kids and adults alike on a transformative (and fun) journey. This comic version of the classic tale includes childish antics such as the giant peeing to put out a fire. (Yes, that actually did happen in the book!) Quotes like "Use your inside-the-castle voice" will have the whole family laughing out loud. Comic geniuses from the British Isles -- namely, Chris O'Dowd and Catherine Tate -- add their inimitable brand of humor as well.

It's not all fun and games, though. There are heartfelt messages we can all learn from, about "valiant acts of bravery," the often-uselessness of war and the importance of just being oneself.

In short, this movie will make you feel like a giant -- no matter what size you are.
