Absolutely wild and wacky fantasy that you will surely enjoy
THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING WOMAN, in my opinion, is an absolutely wild and wacky fantasy that you will surely enjoy. If you ask me, the disposal was the scariest obstacle that Pat (Lily Tomlin) encountered. Don't get me wrong, but I thought that it was funny when she shrunk. Some of the obstacles she encountered were funny, too. Only some of them were a little gross. There is just one things that puzzles me. That one thing is how household chemicals could shrink someone. In conclusion, if you like Lily Tomlin or hilarious fantasies, I highly recommend this absolutely wild and wacky fantasy that you will surely enjoy. You're in for a wild ride if you haven't seen it, so hold on tight!
