Lemuel Gullivar (Jack Black) works in the mailroom of a New York newspaper. He's in love with the travel columnist (Amanda Peet of 2012) but doesn't have the nerve to ask her out on a date. When a newly hired underling is promoted as his boss after one day he decides to finally ask her the question--and instead tells her he's interested in writing. He plagiarizes a bunch of work and she sends him on an assignment to investigate the Bermuda Triangle. This is, of course, when he's whisked away to the island of the Lilliputians. The general of the Lilliputian army hates him and constantly refers to him as "Beast"--and hates him even more when he gains the King's (Billy Connelly of FIDO) favor and is put in charge of the army. The former general defects to the enemy and they build a huge robot to defeat Lemuel.
This is the first comedic version of the Jonathan Swift tale I've seen and it works surprisingly well. It's a hoot when he's banished to a nearby island inhabited by giants and is forced to dress up like a baby doll by a humungous brat. The funniest scene is when he puts out a fire in the King's palace by urinating on it. However, the 3-D is wasted. It doesn't add anything to the movie.
