What was HBO Films thinking?
25 October 2002 | by (Las Vegas, Nevada) – See all my reviews

HBO Films produces some of the finest made for TV films ever made but that view can not apply for this 1993 release starring Daryl Hannah in the title role originally portrayed by Allison Hayes in a 1958 drive in theater cult classic of the same name. The story about an abused housewife (Hannah) whose close encounter with an UFO causes her to become a giant is something that should not have been tackled by HBO Films. Fortunately, Hannah followed up this dreadful lead with a good supporting part in the theatrical hit film "Grumpy Old Men."
