Starring Lily Tomlin, Charles Grodin and Ned Beatty. Based on the book by Richard Matheson who wrote “The incredible Shrinking Man.” Lily Tomlin plays a women named Pat Kramer and through some weird unknown product that her husband brings home. It makes her start to shrink in size! This was director’s Joel Schumacher first movie (that wasn’t a made for TV movie) and what impressed me most was the pop of pastels used for the background and the use of the multiple product placement throughout the movie. This movie had a couple of laughs and worth a watch!

Random fact about the movie: Make-up artist Rick Baker plays Sidney the gorilla in the movie.
