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

Nancy Archer: I'm not saying the old Nancy isn't there. I can still hear her inside me, stumbling in the dark, bumping into things, always apologizing. But less and less. Less and less.

B-movie?
27 December 2002 | by (Long Beach) – See all my reviews

Of course it is! This is the type of B-movie that you'll enjoy. I didn't expect to see HANNAH in this role. But it was fun in a corny kind of way. Although it is still the classic story just like the original, it is "made for tv." But thats okay because Hannah leads that "glamor blonde bombshell life" that her beauty stops the film from falling apart. (5)
