Movie Reviews

A fine installment of FAERIE TALE THEATRE
Byron Kolln | the corner where Broadway meets Hollywood | 10/25/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"JACK AND THE BEANSTALK is a fine installment in the FAERIE TALE THEATRE series, though it's hardly one of the best. Dennis Christopher leads the cast as the young lad with big dreams and a handful of magic beans.

Jack (Dennis Christopher) lives with his loving-but frazzled mother (SOAP's Katherine Helmond) in near poverty. The only thing left of value for them to sell is Jack's beloved cow Spot. Reluctantly, Jack sets off to market with the cow when he meets a strange old man who offers him 5 magic beans in exchange for the animal. When Jack returns home, his mother chides him for his foolishness and the beans are tossed outside...where they sprout into an enormous beanstalk that leads to a castle in the sky owned by an evil Giant (Elliott Gould). Jack's adventures have only just begun!

Jean Stapleton and Mark Blankfield fill out the cast. Katherine Helmond is wasted in the role of Jack's mother, though Jean Stapleton makes the role of the disgruntled Giantess into a scene-stealer. Jerry Hall briefly appears as the face inside the magical harp."
