Overview

The Incredible Shrinking Woman, directed by Joel Schumacher, is an attempted social satire focusing on the position of women in our society and our social values. After being exposed to a bizarre mixture of household chemicals, Pat Kramer (Lily Tomlin) begins to shrink. While this baffles scientists and makes parenting difficult, Pat captures the hearts of the American people. An evil political group who plots world domination kidnaps Pat and performs experiments on her to learn the secret of how to shrink everyone. The screenplay was written by Jane Wagner, Tomlin's frequent collaborator; Charles Grodin plays Pat's husband.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jason Clark
An amusing but ever-so-slight spoof of 1950s science fiction and consumerism, this early effort by director Joel Schumacher never finds the right tone for its admittedly unusual tale. The film, which is sometimes striking in its awkwardness, is partially salvaged by quirky detail (the production design as one example) and fine acting from Lily Tomlin. Tomlin, seen here in three roles, confirms her status as a crafty, chameleonic performer who never seems to get the credit she deserves -- or a film as inventive as she is. A truly unique feature, The Incredible Shrinking Woman remains one of the only films in history in which a woman gets caught in a garbage disposal and befriends a giant gorilla (expertly designed by makeup master Rick Baker).
