Trivia

The catering van in the dinner scene reads Arkoff and Corman, Industrial Caterers, a reference to American International Pictures producer Samuel Z. Arkoff and director Roger Corman (neither of whom was involved in the original Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958), which was released by Allied Artists). See more »

Goofs

Real-world shots of crowds running scared in the streets do not match the shots of Nancy walking down the empty model streets. Some of the model buildings are noticeably different, too. See more »

Quotes

Harry Archer: You were sad before, but now you're just a big joke. If only you knew half of what Honey Parker knows about how to be a real woman.
Nancy Archer: Insect! Tick! I offer you a landscape and you cling to a glass doorknob!
Harry Archer: She was better in bed that you ever were. She's even better than your cousin Vera.
Nancy Archer: Vera? You slept with Vera? I'll kill her, but first, I'm going to pop your head like a Concord grape!

Hall hath no fury like a woman grown....
19 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

OK, so it's a cheesy remake of a camp classic.... But it is all good, harmless fun....

Darryl Hannah stars as the titular character - a wealthy heiress who grows to 50 foot tall after she gets angry. After a freak encounter with aliens, she grows to an enormous size after an argument with her husband (Daniel Baldwin) and her father. It's a perfect remake of the 50's classic, updated to match the current 90's time frame - with big business and big bucks hanging in the balance.

Some argue that another actress could have been cast as the lead, but Darryl was at the height of her popularity during the early 90s and is perfect in this role. Others argue that this b-rated made-for-cable release was a case of her slumming in her career. Either way, this stands as a cheesy remake of the camp b-movie classic...

A definite afternoon cheezer pleaser...
