The Real Story is that Jack and the Beanstalk is still popular
Jack and the Beanstalk is a movie which you can put in the same category as the 10th Kingdom. Jack and the Beanstalk is a fairy tale, so normally you might think that this is only for children but the makers of this movie or actually TV-series prove that you can even interest adults with a fairy tale. The special effects are very funny and the story does not bore you for any moment and keeps your attention for the full 3 hours it takes. Jack and the Beanstalk is according to my opinion a masterpiece because it is great to make a movie which interests people from you until old and you can find all aspects in the movie like magic, adventure, humor and of course, how we could forget it Romantic. The qualification from me is 9 out 10 and that means.....well done mates !!!!!!!
