Gulliver's travels is a 2010 "adaptation" of Jonathan Swift's [[Literature/GulliversTravels book]] starring Creator/JackBlack. It opened to poor reviews and failed domestically in the USA, though it was saved from being a bomb by strong overseas sales.

* ComicallyMissingThePoint: In the book, Gulliver's most apparent and consistent quality is that he is [[WillNotTellALie honest to a fault]] and almost always [[LudicrousPrecision incapable of omitting details]]. In this version, Gulliver will [[TheMunchausen lie without flinching, just to escape his pathetic life]].

* ProductPlacement: Parodied in an Orange Telephone ad where Jack Black complains about product placement in the scene where he's captured by the Lilliputians. Exaggerated when the Lilliputians actually read the instructions on how to unlock an iPhone. Played straight with Coke-Cola and GuitarHero.
