Goofs

As the giant picks Jeremy up, the harness holding Jeremy up is visible above him. This happens again when Jeremy is trying to open the door in order to free the goose, especially after Jeremy has let go of the door handle and is falling to the floor (at 0:45:17 on the DVD). This was done with a blue screen and harnesses. See more »

Great fun (for kids)
8 May 2002 | by (Wales, UK) – See all my reviews

This movie was once one of my favourites. The mixture of animation and real-life actors may remind people of "Song of the South" or, more recently, "Space Jam", but this is quite different. The animated characters aren't big stars that you know. But they still manage to be cute and funny.

Storywise, it is of course about the boy who exchanges a goat for a few beans, instead of selling it for money, thereby almost driving the family into poverty. The next morning, a giant beanstalk has grown out of those beans, and as he climbs it he enters a magical land in the clouds, inhabited by a human-eating giant. Together with a friend, he explores the giant's castle, tries to find the gold and rescue a damsel in distress in the process.

The film is funny and loveable with enough cute characters to keep kids happy (how I loved the birds dancing with Gene Kelly!)

Family fun. And the best adaptation of "Jack and the Beanstalk" I have seen to date. 8/10
