Trivia

Paul Benedict, who plays a doctor hired to cure Nancy's gigantism, suffered for several years from acromegaly, an overproduction of growth hormone. It has been speculated that the producers knew of Benedict's former condition and that his casting was an in-joke. See more »

Quotes

Harry Archer: What made her grow like that?
Dr. Victor Loeb: You menctioned that she began growing when she got angry. Clearly it's stress related. The blood tests show that her hormone levels are abnormally high.
Harry Archer: Congratulations, Doctor. You've just discovered a new kind of PMS.

Hall hath no fury like a woman grown....
19 April 2004 | by (Rancho Mirage, California) – 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...
