Movie Info

With just one weekend to perform a heroic deed before he flunks out of fairy tale school, a desperate young student embarks on the adventure of a lifetime in this fun twist on the classic tale featuring Gilbert Gottfried, Chevy Chase, Christopher Lloyd, Katey Sagal, and James Earl Jones. Throwing caution to the wind, young Jack trades his C.O.W. (Computer of Wonder) for a small pile of magic beans. The following morning, Jack is stunned to find that his beans have sprouted into a stalk that leads straight up into the clouds. Ascending the stalk, Jack discovers a wondrous new world where anything seems possible, and discovers that heroes can come in small packages when they have the courage to face their fears.

Silly live-action twist on classic fairy tale is goofy fun.

Jack and the Beanstalk seeks to emulate the playful wit of the wondrous The Princess Bride but falls woefully short.

Audience Reviews for Jack and the Beanstalk


This is definately a kids movie. Nothing an average mature audience would enjoy. Though there are people like me that still have a heart for this specific type of film.

Wasn't bad had a decent adventure in it with great actors but not one of my favorites. There was times it held my attention and times when I was wanting it to be over, but the kids would love it.

This was a cute movie and I find myself always liking the new versions of older fairytales and this one was a pretty good one.
