Always Remember the Little People


We had a free movie ticket, so took the kid to see Jack Black's latest movie adaptation of Gulliver's Travels.


It was everything you'd expect from a Jack Black vehicle:  mildly entertaining, with lots of self-effacing humor, and rock-and-roll-teenager-antics.

I was put off, initially, that all of the adaptations of the legendary satire seemed to focus on Lilliput, and not on the themes of the original work.

In this one, he does spend 5 minutes in Brobdingnag (with no explanation given for what the world is like, other than that there's a sadistic little girl who treats him like a living doll.)


But then, it occurred to me that Jack Black's adaptation (while disappointingly leaving out the Houghnyms) does illustrate the failure of a government that takes its rulemaking too seriously.  And it (heavy-handedly) dismisses jingoistic warmaking.


Still, the movie was more fast food than vitamins, if you catch my drift...
