REEL DEAL: Gulliver's Travels PLUS Scrat's Continental Crack Up!

 When you insert Jack Black into a great classic story, the effect is a LOL-a-thon! We have been familiar with the story written by Jonathan Smith centuries ago. And the classic picture of having a man tied up on the beach by hundreds and hundreds of little people called Lilliputians. Though the story is a fairy tale classic, having this one retold with the modern touch is good and absolutely funny. 
 The setting of Lilliput actually follows the classic traditions and customs, basically Gulliver is the only thing modern. This makes the clash and a lot of laughs with so many things one could relate to. You would definitely like the Royal Family of Lilliput especially the princesses. You could actually learn a classic word from the nobles, something you can add to your vocabulary.
I could say it is a family movie since you could realize values with the turn of events. Though if you would compare it to the classic story, it goes to almost a 270 degree turn. I could definitely say that you will laugh at the edge of your seats every time Gulliver (Jack Black) gives out his line. Black does the thing he do best here, hitting you with nostalgia mixed with comedy!

And theres more! Before the movie, a special short from the unlikely character from Ice Age, scrat the squirel and his never ending quest to save his beloved acorn! Of course, this becomes a hilarious misadventure into the earth as in literally. You would realize how the continents were formed and also the evolution of many species, and the unending quest if he would achieve his goal with the coveted acorn! Go Scrat!

Deliberation time kids!
