She was an ordinary housewife who gave so much … and got so little.
Comedy legend Lily Tomlin stars in the effervescent 1981 comedy The Incredible Shrinking Woman. Exposed to a heady mix of household chemicals, Pat Kramer (Tomlin) contracts a strange side effect: She begins to shrink! Baffling doctors, Pat's diminishing size starts to really bring her down … until her story captures the hearts of the American people and the attention of a sinister group of scientists bent on world domination. Getting out of this predicament while still taking care of her family will be no small feat!
Also starring Charles Grodin (Midnight Run), Ned Beatty (Deliverance, Homicide: Life On The Street), and Tomlin's fellow Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In alumnus Henry Gibson, and featuring makeup master Rick Baker (King Kong, Star Wars) as Sidney the gorilla, The Incredible Shrinking Woman is a smart little comedy with big laughs.
