When the giant king finds the bag of beans dropped by Roderick, it has five beans; however, after the giant blows them into the water, only four stalks grow. Counting the initial bean that starts this story and the bean that Jack retains, there should be seven beans in all; eight if you count the one from the story book's tale. See more »
This is a terrible idea.
Have you ever killed a giant before?
And you've killed, what, one? Which makes you an expert now?

The Bad Hat Harry logo contains silhouettes of giants, who are first seen from a human point-of-view (their feet are seen stomping around) before they seen in their entirety. See more »
As I left the theater after watching this movie I tried to put my
finger on the reason why I felt so underwhelmed by what I had just
watched. Perhaps it was the overly simplistic video game plot (save the
princess), the lack of a well defined villain, or the lackluster
development of any of the characters. In the end I couldn't precisely
point to any single issue that derailed my ability to really enjoy this
viewing. What this movie really lacked was the ability to engage the
audience on any meaningful level whether it be emotional, mental or
otherwise. In short, it's soulless. I don't know exactly what gives a
movie its soul but I know when it's missing and this movie,
unfortunately, was quite lacking.
