Gullivar's Travel's

On Friday we were so busy catching up on work, we didn't have time to take them out during the day, and usually when we're busy, I'd send them over to my parents home, but my siblings had other obligations too, and I couldn't foist my kids on them. Strangely, the boys didn't protest about staying at home and doing nothing for once. Well, it isn't doing anything. I made them clear out their toys. it was getting a little bit out of hand. Abdulaziz rediscovered his Legos and was hooked on them for the rest of the day. Ahmed did the same thing with his Playmobils. So I decided to book for a late show to watch Gulliver's Travel's. We went for a quick bite and then headed to the movies. I guess the boys were more excited to be out at such a late hour, by our standards 9pm is late for the boys, more than going to watch the movie. Anyway…here is my take. Jack Black being Jack Black, with few moves from Kung Fu Panda, and he didn't bring anything new to this movie. Abdulaziz loved the movie and Ahmed…well he slept before the movie began!
Lemuel Gulliver is a mailroom clerk at a New York newspaper. After Gulliver bluffs his way into an assignment writing about the secrets of the Bermuda Triangle, he is hurtled to an undiscovered land, Lilliput. In this fantastical new world, Gulliver is a bigger-than-life figure -- in size and ego -- especially after he starts telling tall tales, taking credit for his world's greatest inventions, and placing himself at the center of its most historic events. Gulliver's position is enhanced even further when he leads his new friends in a daring battle against their longtime enemies. But when Gulliver loses it all and puts the Lilliputians in peril, he must find a way to undo the damage. Gulliver only becomes a true giant among men when he learns that it¿s how big you are on the inside that counts.
