Editorial Reviews

The loveable and laughable Lily Tomlin stars in the high-spirited comedy The Incredible Shrinking Woman. Exposed to a bizarre mix of household chemicals, ordinary housewife and mother Pat Kramer (Tomlin), develops a strange illness - she begins to shrink. Baffling doctors and struggling to take care of her family, Pat's diminishing size captures the hearts of the American people but also the attention of an evil group of scientists plotting to take over the world!

Format: VHS Tape
The Incredible Shrinking Woman came out in 1981 and the movie actually more or less reflected the consumerist attitudes of the time, the dawning of the Reagan administration. The movie wasn't too well liked by the critics, they thought that Lily Tomlin didn't give it her full here and that the script was simply so-so, but actually I thought the movie makes perfect sense. Here Lily Tomlin plays a housewife named Pat Kramer who starts to shink thanks to an intolerance of chemicals in her household items. What was really silly of the film was the gorilla, because it wasn't a real gorilla at all but a person in a gorilla suit. Anyway, this movie is basically a satire on Reagan-era American consumerism and materialism, and I think they did a good job at getting that message across, regardless what the movie critics said of it. Lily Tomlin might be a fine comedienne, but it's too bad that her movie output has been rather inconsistent, ranging from critically acclaimed and well liked films like Nashville (w/Henry Gibson, like Tomlin, a Laugh-In alumni, and Keith Carradine) and All of Me (w/Steve Martin) to total stinkers and box office bombs like Moment by Moment (w/John Travolta). And while the Incredible Shrinking Woman was thought of by the critics as another misguided adventure by Lily Tomlin, it's really a lot better than the critics will let you believe, so give it a watch.

I too was delighted when I discovered that this great film was finally getting a DVD release. Like one other reviewer has stated, it is widescreen, and the quality of the picture and sound is worlds better than any previous home video release. Unfortunately, this release, like all previous ones, does NOT include any of the scenes with Edith-Ann. I was hoping for the complete movie, with ALL scenes intact.
Nonetheless, this is still an excellent addition to anyone's library and a brilliant film as well.

I've always been a huge fan of this movie and can't understand why it has been treated so badly. It has a knockout cast with Charles Grodin and Ned Beatty. This "restored" version is pieced together from the tapes television studios received and not from the original film. You can see the size of the grain change throughout the film and the beginning is so bad it's not even VHS quality. Most scenes are VHS quality.

The kicker is that Edith Ann has been completely removed from the film. What you will receive here is a butchered version of the film. That said, it's great to be able to see this movie again since I don't have a VCR. I have never had to give a 5 star movie 2 stars and this is the only case I have ever seen where the DVD is actually worse than the VHS tape.

I have been looking for the Widescreen DVD release of the film forever. I am so glad to finally see it released. It is s Wonderful movie. One of my all-time favorites.

When reading the DVD release reviews I was confused. I`ve seen the this movie once when released in 1981 and a million times on video. I did not remember the scenes everyone was complaining about that were cut out. Especially the scenes with Edith Ann. I would have remembered those. After some research online it found out there are 2 versions of the film. The Theatrical and Television broadcast version. What we have here is the original Theatrical version. Nothing has been cut. In the broadcast television versions there are scenes that were not in the theatrical cut:
Dr. Ruth, communicating with patients, on monitors. During these scenes, Pat was finding ways to get out of her cage.
Also, this scene includes Lily Tomlin's role as Edith Ann (Little Girl, which she plays on her Broadway shows).
Finally, Pat Kramer tries to reach the switches, to turn on the monitor but, she turned it on with her foot.

So I hope that clears up the confusion. Hopefully this film will get a proper DVD/Blu Ray release and maybe those scenes will show up as bonus features.

this, i think, is one of lily tomlin's best along with 9 to 5. its about a normal mother who starts having problems when she begins shrinking due to houehold products. this is such a classic i am surprised it is out of print.
i remember watching it as a kid and laughing at the part of edith ann. years later when renting it, that part was taken out. i have no idea why. years after that i happened to catch it on tv and they were showing the original version with that scene added in.Why did they take that part out? Hmmmmmm that is what i love about lily tomlin. she can play all these characters so hilariously. and that part where the gorilla gave the people in the elevator a less then friendly sign language gesture was hilarious. if you can find this watch this. lily tomlin is one of my favorite actresses and i wish she was in more movies.

This has to be one of my all time favorite comedies! Though the title is b-flickish, the quality is not. With funny jingles for in movie products, multiple character roles by Lily Tomlin, and comedy with a likeness to other films staring Lily, like "Big Business", this films safe enough for the little ones, and funny enough not to be allowed to go un-watched!
The story needs no explination, just read the title! Then imagine the fame someone would get (wanted, or as unwanted as it might be), the humor of trying to run a normal household while loosing inches to feet of height in just days, and the danger of coverup and possible profit by those who lead to the unusal affliction.
Get it! Watch it! And watch it again!

Format not indicated, Original length feature?
I have read about the missing scene before. It was never part of the original theatrical release, but an added scene for network television to help stretch the running time to 2 hours (with commercials), I have read that the scene was sometimes played on pay cable channels like HBO and Cinemax... Read More
