In the night, the Princess arrives, having run off to keep herself from marrying Roderick, who is clearly only interested in becoming king. Soon, the beans take root with a giant stalk carrying away the princess and Jack's house. He soon sets off on an adventure with the king's guards to rescue the princess, only to find that a mythical land filled with giants really exists.Written by

As the main beanstalk grows, Jack loses his grip on Isabelle's wrist but luckily his fall is broken by a lower part of the twisting stalks. However, he fell for 5.2 seconds which means a drop of 435 feet, his body impacting the stalk at 114 mph. See more »

German version was cut for violence (Fallon getting hit by arrows in the face and burning) to secure a "Not under 12" rating. See more »
I wasn't blown away by this flick, but I did enjoy it. And I also enjoyed...
1. No potty humor 2. No overt sexuality 3. No inappropriate language 4. No seemingly random 3D FX 5. No politically correct messages or characters 6. No strutting egotism
In short, it's not a Follywood movie and you can actually let your kids watch it without worrying too much. There is some violence, but...
The script is well written, the acting is better than good, and it moves along at a pretty lively pace. Not a classic, but good. It might have been better a little shorter, but that can be said of most movies these days.
I was surprised to hear so many complaints.
