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).
