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!

INNERSPACE [1987 / 2015] [Blu-ray] A Funny, Fantastic Voyage! Blast Off and Have A Great Time! An Adventure of Incredible Proportions!

Jack Putter [Martin Short] feels funny today, nothing new to this 25-hour-a-day a hypochondriac Safeway grocery clerk. What’s new is that Jack hears something, and declares “I’m possessed!” And you’re about to be possessed by laughter.

‘GREMLINS’ executive producer Steven Spielberg and director Joe Dante, again rev their imagination into overdrive for this comic adventure that won a 1987 Academy Awards® for Best Visual Effects. The voice Jack Putter hears is that of hotshot Lt. Tuck Pendleton [Dennis Quad], subject of a secret miniaturization technology project gone awry and accidently injected into Jack Putter. And before frazzled Jack Putter can say, “I’ve got you under my skin,” his unlikely partner propels him into the craziest escapade of his life.

FILM FACT: Awards and Nominations: 1987 Academy Awards®: Win: Best Visual Effects for Bill George, Dennis Muren, Harley Jessup and Kenneth F. Smith. 1988 Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films: Nominated: Best Director for Joe Dante. Nominated: Best Science Fiction Film. Nominated: Best Special Effects.

Innerspace was long overdue for a blu-ray high-definition transfer, especially since Dennis Muren and the wizards at ILM won the Oscar for Best Visual Effects for this film in 1988, and it delivers! The picture is gorgeous, with every particle inside "Martin Short's Interiors" super-sharp, and great lattitude between highlights and shadows!

The extras are the same as the DVD, the theatrical trailer and an entertaining commentary by director Joe Dante, producer Michael Finnell and visual-effects supervisor Dennis Muren. It cracked me up hearing Dennis trying to get in his "the fat cells are jello" comments between the others' comments during a visual-effects shot that lasted 5 seconds!
