After being exposed to a bizarre mixture of household chemicals, Pat Kramer begins to shrink.

This evil group plots to kidnap Pat and perform experiments on her so that they can eventually shrink everyone. Written by Dave Smith <dave@stat.colostate.edu>

Great 80's cheese
25 April 2003 | by (Oklahoma City, OK) – See all my reviews

Lily Tomlin has so many comedic talents. And they are all here in this film. Dry wit, dual roles (she's good at that), Ernestine the operator, Edith Ann, the little brat (in a deleted scene). Pure enjoyment. I remember seeing this as a kid. Now as an adult, I enjoy it again, being able to catch little pieces of the humor I never understood as a child. An adorable comedy is all this is. I read so many of these user comments and find too many people looking for some sort of message or spiritual enlightenment or an answer to the meaning of life. Get real. It's cute. Just enjoy it.
