Nonetheless, this is still an excellent addition to anyone's library and a brilliant film as well.
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.
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.
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.
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!

A few funny moments but not as many as I remember. Not a family-friendly movie - s word in the opening scene, fair amount of sexual innuendo and references to sex, although nothing... Read morePublished 28 days ago by pterrell225

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...
