    Synopsis:
    In this ingenious comedy adventure from director Joe Dante, Dennis Quaid plays hell-raising Navy test pilot Tuck Pendleton, the world`s first "micronaught". In a top-secret government miniaturisation experiment, Tuck is shrunk within his space-age capsule. Stolen by industrial terrorists, who want to sell the new technology on the black market, Tuck is accidentally injected into the body of hypochondriac grocery clerk Jack Putter (Martin Short). With the terrorists in hot pursuit, Jack must come to terms with the strange voice in his head while Tuck has to figure out a way of escaping from Jack`s body and returning to his normal size. Their only hope is Tuck`s journalist girlfriend Lydia (Meg Ryan) but Jack has suddenly developed a crush on her...

    Your Opinions and Comments

    7 / 10
    A nice comic sci-fi movie about getting himself miniaturized and injected into another guy.
    Done back in 1987, the movie is still impressive visually.
    The video transfer is good. There are no compression signs or scratches on this 15 year-old movie, and the visuals are quite pleasing.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is somehow flat. The surrounds are used occasionally, but are quiet during most of the movie.
    The menus are still and silent.
    The extras include a commentary by the director, producer and some other crew members.
    Bottom line - a nice (and not too deep) movie to pass an evening.
