Storyline

A fairy tale character who is about to flunk out of fairy tale school, Jack must perform a heroic deed by Monday or fail miserably, just like his father before him. Anxious to make good, Jack sells his C.O.W. (Computer of Wonder) for a handful of magic beans and a mysterious book that records his adventures as he's having them. Accompanied by his sidekick Grayson -- a goose who ate a bean and underwent an amazing transformation -- Jack climbs the magic beanstalk to recover the fabled Harp of Destiny from the evil Giant who lives in the sky. Helping Jack on his perilous quest is the spunky Jillian, a fearless young girl whom Jack meets on his journey -- and who just may have a hidden agenda... Written by anonymous

Trivia

Director Gary J. Tunnicliffe wanted to use his knowledge and love of martial arts to create an amazing fight sequence in the movie, but knew that to do this and still maintain a G rating might be hard. To solve the problem, he created a two and a half minute 'Ninja Pillow Fight' and called upon some of his 'industry friends' (who can only be described as a group of 'Martial Arts/Stunts Masters and Legends') to choreograph and perform the sequence.

Goofs

When Jack begins climbing the beanstalk, the words "Jack begins climbing the magical beanstalk" appear in the book of Jack's story. When Jack climbs down to see for himself, the page goes blank again (at around 53 mins), but as Jack turns the page to see the next page, we see that the original page was not blank, but was the "Once Upon a Time ..." page.

Bad kids movie
31 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

A fairy tale character who is about to flunk out of fairy tale school, Jack must perform a heroic deed by Monday or fail miserably, just like his father before him. Anxious to make good, Jack sells his C.O.W. (Computer of Wonder) for a handful of magic beans and a mysterious book that records his adventures as he's having them.

It's a cross between a bad kids movie and sarcastic adult fare. There are many problems with this film. Gilbert Gottfried as the golden egg laying goose is just one of them. He is ill-fitting in this kids film. And they are once again trying to oversexualize Chloë Grace Moretz. She's playing the 'hot' girl in a kids movie. Really? And everybody is hamming it up which is so disappointing especially with many of my favorite actors here.

And this starts with an unreasonable modern dream sequence. If this takes place in an old fantasy land, why would he dream about the modern day. Like so many things here, it's best not to think about it.
