Double crosses, adultery, murder, mistaken identity, and revenge ensue when a mysterious power player and his sultry wife hire a disgraced Los Angeles property broker to discreetly market and sell their Malibu villa.
Thirty years after they served together in Vietnam, a former Navy Corpsman Larry "Doc" Shepherd re-unites with his old buddies, former Marines Sal Nealon and Reverend Richard Mueller, to bury his son, a young Marine killed in the Iraq War.
"Downsizing" follows a kindly occupational therapist who undergoes a new procedure to be shrunken to five inches tall so that he and his wife can help save the planet and afford a nice lifestyle at the same time.
Downsizing premiered at the 74th Venice International Film Festival on August 30, 2017. It was chosen by the National Board of Review as one of the top ten films of 2017, while Chau has earned a nomination for Best Supporting Actress at the 75th Golden Globe Awards. See more »
An Olive Garden employee mentions "Baked Potato Soup." Olive Garden does not carry/make Baked Potato Soup (their Zuppa Toscana soup has some potatoes in it, but this is not the same thing). See more »
In my opinion the biggest problem and the reason for all the down votes of this movie is it's trailer. I also thought this movie was going to be a full-on comedy. Seeing Jason Sudeikis,Kristen Wiig in the trailer; all the jokes made me believe this is going to be funny to watch. Well, both of them were in the movie for like 7 minutes. Also there was this anticipation of experiencing how the "small" world would be but that also is a really tiny part of the movie.
This movie is much more than the trailer offers but unfortunately it also is much less than it too.
Watch this movie but change your expectations.
