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

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 and Stunt Masters and Legends) to choreograph and perform the sequence.

Goofs

When Jack begins to talk alone with the headmaster, the C.O.W. (computer of wonder) lies on the headmaster's podium (at around 11 mins). When Jack leaves the classroom he takes it from his own desk. See more »

Loved it :D
12 April 2017 | by Bored_DragonSee all my reviews

Pretty much low-budget, but very entertaining. smart, witty parody on famous fairy-tales, full of cultured humor, without vulgarity and all those nasty things that suppose to be funny these days. Perfect for brain relaxation.

8/10
