Audience Reviews for Jack and the Beanstalk

Bud Abbott is little more than a character presence in this children's fantasy starring his partner Lou Costello, who is rarely off-screen at all, even for a minute. Everything in the production for children only is silly but for the song and dance numbers and one is tempted to feel sorry for the children forced to watch this unabashed money grab.

Weird, but not in a good way. I guess I'm just not a fan of Abbott and Costello humor.

Super Reviewer

Bits of brilliant comedy, combined with moments of supremely bad special effects and embarrassingly unfunny jokes.
