A very endearing movie for all to see, and is appropriate for all ages. It's a simple story of how common household products, when mixed, can produce disasterous (and hilariously funny) results! Pat Kramer, a modern housewife, is exposed to a variety of household chemicals including "Galaxy Glue" (her husband's ad campaign product) she begins to shrink! In a few days she is the size of a child's doll. Pat becomes a media darling and is in the spotlight in no time. Struggling to retain the normality in her life, Pat battles her children, pets, insects, the media, and even a gorilla! It was deemed an instant cult classic.
