After watching the two making-of segments on the DVD, it seems everyone who had anything to do with the making of Jack and the Beanstalk: The Real Story had a great time doing it, loved working with director Brian Henson, and loved every minute of it. What do you expect them to say? The guy paid their salaries, of course they're going to love him. There are a few true behind-the-scenes shots of on-set activity that reveal how many of the special effects were rendered, but most of it is clips from the film punctuated with video interviews. The disc's images look crisp and clear, as you would expect in a digitized format. The Dolby 2.0 sound, the original format for the film's TV presentation, is the default setting on the disc; be sure to go to the Audio Special Features and opt for the Dolby 5.1 to get the full benefit of the Surround sound.

This movie is one of the few movies my family and I truly enjoy watching together. We were all so involve in the movie that we did not realized that three hours went by. Unexpected surprises kept coming up in the movie so it kept all of us wide awake the whole time. This movie will be part of my collection of the greatest movies I ever watched.
I am so happy to find this available. I have looked at all our video stores for it and now I can buy it for our own family collection. We rented it once and watched it over and over. Nice twist to an old story.
My son and I watched this movie and were hooked. My son, who was 3 at the time, made me play it for him over and over. It's a new spin on an old fairy tale.
My family loves this movie. My kids watch it over and over and over again.
