The film's major difficulty is the screenplay by Jane Wagner.

Good intentions and one's own goodwill are soon diminished as script and direction conspire to render a sitcom satire that's indistinguishable from its target.

Audience Reviews for The Incredible Shrinking Woman

This comic adaptation of Richard Matheson's classic science-fiction novel (The Shrinking Man) is not a bad movie.
