Finally, a film that is so completely enjoyable, that it you can view it more than once and enjoy it more every time! Dennis Quaid stars as a washed-up airplane pilot who is crazy enough to be miniaturized (shrunk to a cellular size) and be injected into a rabbit to conduct a scientific experiment. However, things don't go as planned. Right after Quaid is shrunk, rival scientists break in the laboratory to steal it, but they weren't quick enough! The head scientist makes a run for it carrying the syringe with Quaid and injects it into Martin Short, who is perfectly cast as a neurotic grocery store cashier. There, Quaid taps into Short's hearing and sight and together they must get him to his original size before he runs out of air! A pure delight, especially for Short fans; this is unquestionably his best performance. Excellent special effects won this film an Oscar. A must see.
