'80s sci-fi adventure comedy has some drinking, swearing.

Antagony & Ecstasy

While the sci-fi is pretty hard to fault for what it is, and the adventure is aces for a high-concept 1980s family movie, the comedy is awfully wan and reedy.

For all the Amblin technology on display, Dante's greatest effects are humanistic

The plot is standard fantasy-adventure pulp, though director Joe Dante has so many screwball things going on in it that the comedy all but overwhelms the formulaic line of action.

Short has infinitely more possibilities and makes the most of them, coming into his own as a screen personality as a mild-mannered little guy who rises to an extraordinary situation.

Combustible Celluloid

Though the film plays like a mix of exhilarating adventure and smart comedy, it's deepened by the notion that little Quaid is floating around inside Short's body sinking hooks into things, ripping open veins, triggering stomach acid, and the like.

While the anatomical special effects are imaginative enough, the manic rather than magical tone fails to achieve the sense of awe that made Fantastic Voyage -- clearly this film's inspiration -- so fascinating.

Director Joe Dante throws in every special effects trick in the book to give some heft to the skimpy script but it doesn't work.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

Aventura de ficção científica que, com o toque amalucado de Joe Dante, vira uma comédia quase besteirol - aliás, em alguns momentos vai até longe demais. No entanto, os efeitos são bacanas, o espírito é de diversão e o filme agrada.

[Innerspace] is pure entertainment, with plenty of gags and cameos that demand repeat viewings.
