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.

Giantess Hannah Rocks
20 November 2001 | by (fairview, nj) – See all my reviews

ATTACK OF THE 50 FT. WOMAN (1993-MADE FOR CABLE TV) ** 1/2 Daryl Hannah, Daniel Baldwin, Cristi Conaway, William Windom, Frances Fisher, Paul Benedict. Special effects laden remake of the campy sci-fi classic about a troubled woman whose close encounter with a UFO transforms her into a giantess. Easily head and shoulders above its laughable predecessor, Hannah makes the most of her towering performance in a film that tries to mix feminism with kitsch. She gives Allison Hayes a run for her money in her behemoth bikini. Directed by comedian/"Spinal Tap" star Christopher Guest (too bad he didn't think of this as a vehicle for his wife Jamie Lee Curtis. Yowsa!!)
