AllMusic Review by

In Michael Palin's comic retelling of the classic English folk tale, young Jack foolishly sells his family's cow for a handful of magical beans. Overnight, they sprout and grow into the proverbial beanstalk that reaches up through the clouds and beyond the blue sky. This leads Jack into a hilarious series of misadventures with a dim-witted ogre and his extra large spouse. Powerfully scored by The Eurythmics' Dave Stewart.
