Gulliver's Travels

Kim Watters here. I took my kids to see Gulliver's Travels Tuesday.

Why, you might ask?

1) Because they were off of school (another teacher professional day-gee I wish we had that many when I was a kid)

2) Because I have a little thing for Jack Black. Okay, I admit it. Now I need a ten step program.

3) I had free tickets.

This movie, while quite campy at times had two of my favorite premises. Fish out of water--make that a big fish and underdog. Throw in some unrequitted love, heroine in jeopardy, lots of new technology to update the classic tale, and you've got a cute story. Me and the kids give it a thumbs up. It will definately hit the rental pile when it comes out on DVD.

So, what are your classic plots or premises? Inquiring minds want to know.

Glad to hear the movie was worth seeing. My son wants to go so maybe this weekend. Thank you for sharing.

I'm not a Jack Black fan, but I'm happy you and your kids enjoyed the show.

I'm a sucker for knights and damsels in distress. Camelot, Ladyhawke and the Black Knight to name just a few of some very old favorites.
