While young heiress Nancy Archer is driving home from yelling at her husband who is with another woman at a motel, she is encountered by aliens that zap her with some kind of laser.

The catering van in the dinner scene reads Arkoff and Corman, Industrial Caterers, a reference to American International Pictures producer Samuel Z.

I imported this one through a greedy shark that took quite a chunk out of me, but Darryl Hannah's beauty was worth the bite. I've wanted to see this ever since 1993, but the movie just never came my way. Harry sure was a loathsome idiot for neglecting his pretty wife that way. Hell, the guy had everything going for him, but still he wasn't satisfied. Oh, and she is just so huggable! That tall, elegant, warm-hearted slice of loveliness that he had to discard for brash Honey. She grows up spectacularly, and the stable and swimming pool scenes are especially good, although the downtown scenes with the 'houses' are kinda lame, but what I would like to know is where she got that dress? A circus tent? I really got worried that she was going to go the way ol' KING KONG did three times before her, but the ending took a different turn that falls far from satisfactory, a more here on Earth resolution was necessary, with everybody getting their just desserts in more conventional fashion, but okay, this is an unconventional movie.

It's just, well, a movie should show its main protagonist to be so much better than the competition, and if the point was, during the Fifties, the man is so domineering, or aggressive, because of his size, let's reverse this, there really is no need for this with Nineties hindsight, yet Nancy becomes violent at the slightest provocation after her growth spurt. She used to keep herself in check; what happened to this discipline too readily thrown out? The moral of the story should have been that after the shift in power, she should have remained the better person, instead of simply playing to another stereotype. Brain power, there lies the answer. She is clearly smart, and this should have been her real Attack, her size just an ally lending her confidence. Her exposition of her father and husband's multiple wrongdoings should have brought much more discredit to the characters than were the case, and this would have been the climax of the movie, rather than these giantesses wielding threats flying around in a UFO. She also should have been returned to normal, and found a decent partner, somebody who truly loved her.

The best thing about this movie? Darryl Hannah all the way! There was a surprising nude scene, however brief, involving Christi (Honey), but nothing detracts from the lead actress, the SPLASH mermaid superstar!

Except maybe a weak, very much flawed script...
