Gullivers Travels or How I found out nobody is a little person.

Great movie, loved the Jack Black portrayal of  Gulliver, he is a big dumb, and muddling fat guy, which he fits perfect for this part.  Gulliver lands in  Lillput and is first treated as ogre or a monster because of his size, but after he rescues the king from a burning castle he is honored like royalty. The little people make him  a house,a recliner, and they are the parts of  his  coffee machine.  Its funny when he plays Guitar Hero as the little people(dressed as Kiss)  perform on stage.

If one kid picks up this book and reads about the Lilliputians,Brobdingnag the land of giants, or the land of the Houyhnhnm inhabited by talking horses and Yahoos(deformed human creatures) this movie will have been a success. And from the kids I saw leaving the theater I think it already is a success.
