Trivia

John Hora who had previously worked as Joe Dante's cinematographer on all of his movies, was cast as Ozzie after Steven Spielberg suggested him to play the absent minded professor. Director Dante and Producer Michael Finnell were very skeptical about that idea and Spielberg insisted that they give him a screen test to just to see and was cast after impressing Dante and Finnell.

Goofs

When Scrimshaw and Canker are partially shrunk, their voices are slightly higher in pitch, just as a shorter person's would be; but Tuck's voice is normal the entire time he is miniaturized. See more »

Lydia Maxwell: Excuse me.
Lt. Tuck Pendleton: Lydia. Look, don't leave. You know you love me, huh? Look, I know you're crazy about me. I mean, in a week or two I'm going to call you, you're going to call me, and we're going to be back together again.
Lydia Maxwell: No, we won't.
Lt. Tuck Pendleton: I don't get it. I get a little drunk, I make an ass out of myself... What's the big deal?

Simply very good entertainment.
5 February 2005 | by (Groningen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie offers perfect entertainment.

The main characters and the performances by the actors are very good and comical. The movie is filled with some crazy 'not-so-everyday' characters and the villains are deliciously stereotyped and highly entertaining and there are some simply hilarious moments throughout the movie.

The movie can be described as an adventure science-fiction comedy. Surely the movie will not be remembered as one of the best of all time but I will always remember this movie as a very entertaining one and of which I have some very fond childhood memories.

The nice 'unknown' musical score by Jerry Goldsmith is very good, I actually watched this movie in honor of his death the day he had died, on 21 July 2004.

As long as you don't expect a masterpiece and merely want to be entertained, this movie is perfectly recommendable. Also very watchable for the entire family.

7/10
