Editorial Reviews

Innerspace (DVD)

The top-secret test of a sub-miniaturization process goes wildly awry in this comic adventure when industrial spies steal the technology and the daring pilot (Dennis Quaid) of the world's first molecular-sized craft is accidentally injected into the bloodstream of a hypochondriac grocery store clerk (Martin Short). Now with only a 24-hour supply of oxygen, an atom-sized test pilot must convince the nerd in whose body he is trapped how to be a hero in order to recover the stolen technology, convince the pilot's girlfriend (Meg Ryan) that he loves her ... and save both men from a grisly death.

I'm a big fan of this film. BIG fan. It struck a chord with me back in 1987, and I love it to this day.

It's a Joe Dante film, with early performances by Dennis Quaid, Martin Short and Meg Ryan.

It's goofier than all get out; here's the synopsis.

Dennis Quaid is a loose cannon test pilot with a bit of an alcohol problem, who gets "demoted" to a secret military program involving miniaturization. He is to be shrunk down, along with a mini-submarine, and injected into a lab rabbit, to test things like the ability to hook up to a host's optic or auditory nerve.

Meg Ryan plays a reporter, romantically involved with Quaid, but for the moment, estranged.

Martin Short plays a hypochondriac supermarket assistant manager.

So, Quaid gets shrunk right before "the bad guys" (led by an over-the-top Kevin McCarthy) invade the laboratory, and in his last act as a living person, the escaping lead investigator injects the microscopic Quaid into Short's left buttock.

Hilarity ensues.

I didn't really care much for the whole "stealing technology" plot thread (there's a very early role by Robert Picardo), but it's there as a scaffold, just to watch Quaid and Short deal with each other. And that's really a joy to watch.

The one scene in the doctor's office, with Quaid finally patched into Short's inner ear, is hysterical. Short gets to mug opposite old friends (and SCTV alums) Joe Flaherty and Andrea Martin...I've seen it a hundred times yet I still laugh every time.

Yes, there are a lot of clunky lines and bits of extreme over-acting. If you have a problem with either Dennis Quaid or Martin Short, it'll be tough for you to like this movie. Overthink this movie, and you're doing yourself a disservice.

Hey, movie viewers! If you liked Gremlins, you MUST see this great 1987 film! It is about a ex-Lieutenant of the U.S. Marines, Tuck Pendleton (Dennis Quaid, Any Given Sunday), who is the subject of a minaturization experiment, which requires 2 microchips. He gets inside a submersible pod, is minaturized down to a microscopic size, placed in a syringe, and is supposed to be injected into a bunny named BUGS!! However, a bunch of criminals, disguised as phone repairmen, break into the laboratory and steal one of the chips. But, a good friend of Tuck's who works at the lab, Ozzie, takes the syringe, runs off, is chased to a mall, and shot. Fortunately, he lives long enough to run into a nerdy hypochondriac named Jack (Martin Short, Primetime Glick), and injects Tuck into him. Later on, Tuck finds out he is in a man, then establishes contact with Jack by placing an amplifier in his ear, and attaches a camera to his eye to see what Jack sees, and tells him what is going on and that he only has 'til 9:00 a.m. tomorrow to get out of him before his air supply runs out. Tuck tells him to go find his girlfriend (Meg Ryan, Hanging Up), and get help from her to recover the chip and save Tuck. This film is a GREAT sci-fi/comedy, and is from the creators of Gremlins (producer Steven Spielberg and director Joe Dante). It is also based on the 1966 film Fantastic Voyage. Like Gremlins, it is also a VERY good family classic. So, if you liked Gremlins, then you HAVE to see this movie! It's REAL KOOL!

I thought this was a harmless little comedy version of "Fantastic Voyage", quite cute. Pilot Dennis Quaid gets shrunk down to be injected into a rabbit, but goofy Martin Short gets in the way of the hypo. So Quaid has to navigate his way around Short and make up with his girlfriend Meg Ryan at the same time, through Short. But there are nasty evildoers trying to stand in the way of all this getting accomplished, most notably Kevin McCarthy of "Body Snatchers" fame from the 1950s. He and his female accomplice also get squirted with some of the miniaturizing stuff, but merely become little midgets battling it out in a car. That was a great silly moment.
Listen to that little voice, and laugh a lot at "Innerspace".

One of the best movies I have every seen! Dennis
Quaid plays Tuck Pendelton, a shrunken test pilot who
was suppose to be injected into a rabbit,but after an
attack by a group of people who are trying to reach the
same achievement of shrinking is instead injected into Jack Putter (Martin Short) a meek, hypochondriac who works at
safeway. Now Tuck and Jack along with Tuck's old girlfriend
Lidia (Meg Ryan) must fight to get Tuck back to normal. There's
a big surprise too.
This movie contains awesome visual effcts (which it
won an academy award for), terffic action, and witty
comical jokes and phases. This movie's a real winner.

Innerspace is an often silly but always entertaining film about a test pilot (Dennis Quaid) who is supposed to be shrunk and put inside a rabbit. Instead things go terribly wrong and he winds up injected into a hypochondriac (Martin Short). There's villians of course who are after Short because Quaid has something they want and they know he's inside Short "that doesn't sound right, lol".
I never had any idea Joe Dante (Gremlins) direected this film, now that I know that it's easily my favorite of his films "yes even over Gremlins". It's just a fun movie with a nicely written script. Don't get me wrong I know it has it's problems. Mean it's absord that you're suppose to believe that Quaid can change Short's appearence and make him look like anyone. Meanwhile if he was only suppose to be put inside a rabbit why would that ship he's inside need the option to change appearences. Well this film just shouldn't be taken seriously, it's more enjoyable if you turn if your brain before watching it.
It's the Short and Quaid team that makes this film so watchable. When you think about it they aren't even acting together so that makes their work in this even more impressive as you believe they're actually talking to each other. Well anyway Quaid makes the Short character who's wimpy and afraid of everything tougher and gives him the backbone he needs. Innerspace is a fun Science Fiction comedy but also works as a buddy movie and it's actually one of the best ones you'll find. Now all we need is another film by Joe Dante, well as long as it's not Small Soldiers 2.
