''Gulliver's Travels'' is a 2010 comedic "[[InNameOnly adaptation]]" of Creator/JonathanSwift'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.

Lemuel Gulliver is a thirty-something loser who has been working as a mail-room clerk for ten years, not having the drive or ambition to make anything of himself. But his world view is left shaken when a younger co-worker is promoted ahead of him in just one day, and he decides to try and make something of his life. In a botched attempt to ask out his attractive co-worker Darcy, who also happens to be the newspaper's travel editor, Gulliver instead asks if he can try writing a piece for her.

Gulliver has a knack for writing, or at least copying and pasting articles from more talented writers, and an impressed Darcy ends up sending him on an assignment to the BermudaTriangle. Unfortunately Gulliver ends up shipwrecked on the island of Liliput, which is filled with tiny people. He's captured and put to work by the General, until he ends up saving the King and Princess from invaders. He's then celebrated by the people instead. When his ship is found, along with his phone, Gulliver receives several angry voicemails from Darcy, who has found out that he copied his work from other people. Afraid to return, he decides to stay in Liliput.

However the General isn't happy with that, especially when the King asks him to step down from his position so that he can promote Gulliver to General. He decides to take matters into his own hands, to show the people of Liliput that Gulliver isn't the hero he claims to be.

!!The movie provides examples of:
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: Gulliver is a dangerous giant in the land of Lilliput then he gets pushed around by a giant girl when he ends up in "the island where we dare not go" (Brobdingnag)
* AllThereInTheManual[=/=]ShownTheirWork: Gulliver putting out the fire by urinating on it comes straight from [[Literature/GulliversTravels the original novel]]
-->''The heat I had contracted by coming very near the flames, and by labouring to quench them, made the wine begin to operate by urine; which I voided in such a quantity, and applied so well to the proper places, that in three minutes the fire was wholly extinguished, and the rest of that noble pile, which had cost so many ages in erecting, preserved from destruction.''
* TheBermudaTriangle: Gulliver's titular travels begin after his ship wrecks in this region.
* BilingualBonus: The Blefuscian motto is "Rapio E Abfugio" which means "Plunder and Run" in Latin.
* CompletelyMissingThePoint: 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]].
* CutTheJuice: Horatio pulls the plug on the electro-shock hands of the Mecha.
* DamselInDistress: Parodied--before Gulliver changes things around, the princess is apparently incapable of doing anything but standing on the balcony, calling for Edward to save her.
* DancePartyEnding
* DareToBeBadass
* EveryoneOwnsAMac: See ProductPlacement. [=MacBook=] Pros, iPhones, and a reference to iPads (gPads).
* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses
* EvilChancellor: General Edward.
* FaceHeelTurn: General Edward, after being rejected by Mary and unable to put up anymore of Gulliver's shenanigans, joined the Blefuscians.
* TheFilmOfTheBook: If you prefer books over films, read the book instead. [[ProductPlacement Out now on iPad!]]
* HeWhoMustNotBeNamed: All of Brobdingnag, leading to NoNameGiven.
* HumongousMecha/ TransformingMecha: Edward pilots one to fight Gulliver.
** Of course, this being Lilliput, it is only slightly bigger than Gulliver.
* IChooseToStay: after hearing how angry Darcy is at him, Gulliver decides to stay for a while longer in Lilliput.
* InNameOnly: While many elements are borrowed from the book, it is a very-very loose adaptation.
* InspectorJavert: Deconstructed in General Edward. His efforts of thinking Gulliver as a threat and how the people are not gonna listen to him anymore leads him into defecting to the Blefuscians.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Edward. When the Blefuscians try to kidnap Mary in the beginning he runs off to the rescue while shouting "NO ONE SAVE THE PRINCESS!"
* {{Lilliputians}}
* LostWorld: The story is set in the BermudaTriangle. Darcy is initially skeptical of the claims of weird stuff going on there.
* NeutralFemale: One person helps out in the big fight. It isn't the giant girlfriend.
* OnceForYesTwiceForNo: The number of times the alarm bell is rung indicates the nature of the emergency. Five rings of the bell indicates that [[OhCrap something is going on that has never happened before]].
* OurGiantsAreBigger: Several layers of big going on-- We have Gulliver who is a giant to the Lilliputians, then the girl who is giant to Gulliver.
* PlagiarismInFiction: Unable to come up with good travel writing examples, he steals them from online sources. The next morning, Darcy notes that they have a variety of styles, with one piece sounding like what you'd get from X, and another piece sounding like it came from Y. Later on, she realizes that it's because they did come from X and Y.
* PlayingCyrano: Gulliver give Horatio lines from several rock songs to use to woo the princess.
* 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 VideoGame/GuitarHero.
* PunchPunchPunchUhOh
* RomanticComedy
* SettingUpdate
* SnowballLie: Gulliver claims that he was the titular character of hundreds of movies, and is the president of his country. When asked if his people need him, he explains that Vice-President Yoda will handle things well in his absence. At one point, General Edward points out that Gulliver's claims are unbelievable, but everyone else sides with Gulliver.
* SpoiledBrat: The giant girl that turns Gulliver into a living baby doll.
* StealthPun: Gulliver's boat Knotforsail, and one of the other boats is called Ship Happens.
* ThisLoserIsYou: With a healthy dollop of IJustWantToBeSpecial.
* ToiletHumor / {{Bowdlerise}} - Gulliver urinating remains from the book, but he doesn't defecate.
* TheVoiceless: Presumably the Brobdingnagians, going by the girl.
