Strictly from hunger.

Oh dear! Where to start? Well, this version of the classic fairy tale (which could kindly be called ''lousy'') was filmed in a long shuttered Florida amusement park called "Pirate's World". WHY it was called that is anyone's guess--but a documentary exploring that subject would have made more sense than this atrocity. The cast consists of "actors" so stiff they could pass for Redwood trees. The musical score sounds like a 6th grade class project. The "production values" consist of costumes which look like what the cast wore to an audition (though there probably wasn't one for this film) and the "sets" were probably constructed in somebody's back yard. There are the usual weird inconsistencies-- The Giant sports a Southern accent(!) Jack himself is a decidedly unvirile hero,and he has a sister, who has a boyfriend, both of whom add absolutely nothing to the plot--except more bad acting. And for a movie filmed at an amusement park, there's little evidence of it. But then, maybe THAT'S why the place shut down. Producer (and nudie specialist) Barry Mahon filmed three kiddie gems, but this one is the worst, and if you saw the other two "The Wonderful Land Of Oz" and "Thumbelina" that says it all. Both "Jack" and "Oz" are currently available on DVD as a double feature. An if you can watch them without laughing your head off, you need a serious medical check-up.
