I've been liked the Jack and the Beanstalk story since I was little, and all the different parodies made since. My favorties will always be the Woody Woodpecker cartoon "Woody the Giant Killer, which is on the Woody Woodpecker DVD, and "Mickey and the Beanstalk", a cartoon shown with some TV versions of Dumbo.Those two are my most favorites.

If Chevy does a dead pan delivery of his part I will watch this.

Is this live action or cartoon? I think Chevy Chase is awesome. Clark W. Griswald just got funnier and funnier in each movie. Does anyone else notice that Ryan Reynolds seems to use a lot of Chevy Chasims? Mostly in his facial expressions. Not that is a bad thing mind you, I think Ryan Reynolds is very funny, but I was just wondering if anyone else has made that comparison.

Gilbert Gottfried still finds work? Why?

Wow, dissing Gilbert. He's funny, and his voice is great for cartoons. That's why he's still working. His standup is awesome.
