When ABC broadcast the film in 1983, there are scenes that were not in the theatrical cut: Dr. Ruth, communicating with patients, on monitors. During these scenes, Pat was finding ways to get out of her cage. Also, this scene includes Lily Tomlin's role as Edith Ann (Little Girl, which she played on her Broadway shows). Finally, Pat Kramer tries to reach the switches, to turn on the monitor but, she turned it on with her foot. See more »
Semi-spoof of The Incredible Shrinking Man has Lily Tomlin playing a housewife who tests several of her husband's (Charles Grodin) household products and soon finds herself shrinking. This was Joel Schumacher's directorial debut and he handles the material fairly well but the problem is that the material isn't that great to start with. The film tries to be very smart and hip when it comes to commercialism but it forgets to add very many laughs. There are several cute scenes that earn a smile but nothing beyond that. Grodin is wasted in his role as the father and Ned Beatty doesn't add too much either. The highlight is certainly Tomlin in her three roles.
