Like a lot of the films on this list, Gulliver’s Travels got bad reviews. One of the criticisms was an over-reliance on special effects, which, ironically enough, might help explain the film’s success overseas, as quality special effects are something that don’t get lost in translation. The fact it was based on a classic of English literature probably helped it do well in the UK and Australia, as well other parts of Europe, too.
