Lily Tomlin stars in this comedy as Pat Kramer, a frenetic American housewife who, falling victim to 20th-century technology, finds herself shrinking inch by inch after exposure to a new perfume.
Consumer firms and the media fall over themselves to exploit her, much to the delight of her advertising executive husband, Vance (Charles Grodin) but evil scientists from the Organization of World Management also want to jump on the bandwagon for their own sinister plans.
Pat also appears on The Mike Douglas Show and is befriended by a gorilla.
A very odd spoof on the wonderful The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957) brought bang up to date with some neat special effects but lacking the shock value of the original.
