And so goes the course of Gulliver's Travels … a movie that's in desperate need of a GPS and a leading man with a few more comedic tricks up his sleeve to actually make the journey feel worthwhile.


  • Drugs/Alcohol:  None.

  • Language/Profanity:  One of the characters thinks that being called a "lamea--"—is actually something noble, and it's repeated several times.

  • Humor:  There's definitely some potty humor, particularly when Gulliver pees on a fire to put it out. And in another scene, one of the little people actually goes into Gulliver's rear end. Gulliver also isn't shy about sporting some plumber's crack from time to time.

  • Sex/Nudity:  When a woman asks a man why he likes her, he points at her breasts. Without missing a beat, she tells him that's not appropriate.

  • Violence:  Mostly of a comedic variety. One scene involving a skeleton is a bit scary.
