After being exposed to a bizarre mixture of household chemicals, Pat Kramer begins to shrink. This baffles scientists, makes parenting difficult, warms the hearts of Americans, and captures the attention of a group of people who want to take over the world.

The name of the medical facility where Lily Tomlin got assessed for shrinking was "The Kleinman Institute". "Klein" is the German / Dutch word for "small". See more »
When the Cramers leave the clinic after being told the diagnosis, Pat is wearing a light blue double-breasted blazer over a peach dress, both of which are too large for her. Later in the film, one of the female newscasters is shown on television wearing the exact same outfit. See more »

Maybe its because I remember seeing this movie on TV so often when I was younger that I still think its hilarious. Its not the best comedy, but some scenes are really funny in a cheesy, early '80s sort of way. Lily Tomlins smile could brighten up any film, and this was directed by Joel Schumacher. I never could figure out why the cinematography in some scenes is so soft, and he actually employs some of the same visuals he would use in later movies. I like how her entire neighborhood seems to be living in a commercial ("Pat, its BoatSheen!") and I think her narration is particularly funny. Give it a chance, don't expect much, and enjoy it for the character actors in bit parts.
