'Gulliver's Travels'

It's a contemporary update of Jonathan Swift's classic adventure novel, but more kid-friendly and less satirical. Jack Black plays an ineffectual travel writer who sets sail only to get shipwrecked and wake up in Liliput, which is inhabited by tiny people. The trailer below gives you a better idea of the humor, but expect lots of physical gags, seeming anachronisms and well, Jason Segel putting on a vaguely European accent.
