In this age of appealing to the lowest common denominator (which admittedly this movie does with the whole "giant chef" scene), its refreshing to see an old fashioned fairytale yarn. The actors turn in fine performances (Stanley Tucci's scenery-chewing villain is repulsively delightful). It's also a family friendly romp, although some of the scenes get a little scary for younger children. The story does also toe the edge of running too long, but why carp? It's fun. Take a break from the Hollywood pop culture sludge machine and buy some magic beans.

Ok so I went into this movie hoping for some excitement and some nostalgia; what I got was boredom. After the first hour I just really didn't care anymore. The best part was the fact that it was in 3D. If you haven't saw it, take my word for it and see something else.

I really enjoyed this movie. It was like Jack and the Bean-stock on steroids. My 8 and 10 year old kids liked it also. It was not too scary for them. Very well done. Special effects and voice overs are good.

I took my 16 year old to see this and he loved it. It was not my kind of movie. I have to say though that some of the special affects were pretty good.

I am still a kid at heart and loved the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. This movie brought the book to life in such a wonderful way. The writers did a great job weaving the story together and the cinematography in 3D included me in the great adventure! I would go see it again!
