Elevator Pitch Gulliver, a no hope mailroom assistant in a newspaper, blaggs his way into a travel writing assignment investigating the Bermuda Triangle. In a storm he ends up on an island populated by relatively tiny people, and becomes a hero after saving the king by urinating on a fire.
Content Mostly the very big person interacting with the very little people, and at one point with an absolutely giant girl. A battle between the big person and a robot, more than once. A bit of romance between two little people and two normal sized people.
A View Like versions of the books, rewritten for children, this movie takes the same course, its only objective appearing to be to show what a very big person can do in a very small world. Maybe some children liked it but it was thumbs down from the critics and the general public alike. It is not really offensive so you can allow it to play on your TV while doing something else.
