Lily Tomlin plays four different characters in this engaging comedy about the perils of consumerism. In the vibrantly colored suburban neighborhood of Tasty Meadows, Pat Kramer juggles housework and two wild children while her husband works in advertising. Unbeknownst to him, he is helping to sell the consumer products that cause Pat to start shrinking. Once she shrinks to dollhouse size, grabbing the attention and hearts of America, she becomes a target for an evil organization hoping to learn her secret and use it to shrink everyone on earth. Despite all the laughs there is a strong anti-consumerist message throughout. The film was Joel Shumacher’s first as a director and is a take-off on the 1957 film THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MAN.
