Storyline

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. As a result, Nancy finds herself growing to giant size everytime she gets angry. Her incredible anger makes her 50 feet tall and she's now a walking giant searching in a terrified town for her husband who is with his other woman. Written by <jcobra3@hotmail.com>

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!

Loved this ironic, post feminist film
18 August 2002 | by (western Canada) – See all my reviews

Very funny B flick. Tried a bit to hard to stay a B movie but a wonderful lark of hit you over the head metaphor of a woman "growing into her power". Ms Hanna was the right choice for this transformative awakening.

I'd live in Nancy Archer's pocket any day!
