Innerspace (1987)

Innerspace Quote: “Jack, I don’t wanna to alarm you, but I saw something down here. I don’t know, it’s probably benign…” – Jack Putter

The ’80s gave us two major movies about shrinkage: “Honey, I Shrunk The Kids” and “Innerspace.” The former was a wholesome, heartwarming, at times tragic tale of a family sticking together to survive. The latter—a sci-fi jumble of sexy Dennis Quaid, overly complicated tech, annoying Martin Short, and, for some reason, a rabbit— is what we’re reviewing today.

“Innerspace” mixed impressive visual effects that gave us all warm fuzzies as we recalled our days at the science museum. And the chemistry between Short and Quaid led to some feel-good moments. But when Quaid was in Meg Ryan’s body after being in her body, then saw his own overly developed child in her womb … man, what the fuck?

You probably haven’t seen this movie. You probably won’t see this movie. But we did. And we’re here to tell you all about it.

Plot Summary: “Innerspace” A scientifically miniaturized marine unexpectedly finds himself floating around the body of a hypochondriac and trying to outwit saboteurs who want the device that shrank him. Attempts by his colleagues to retrieve the little man – protected inside a tiny submersible – are hampered by the would-be thieves.

    Too critical about Martin Short in this movie.. I thought he was great in this and also looked nice. I feel like commissioning of all you nothing but Martin Short movies. Also…Totally got the feeling of you skimping on it and and the rabbit is a supposedly a common animal test subject and the facial change was not intended to be used on the rabbit although funny thought. Anyway, this movie terrified me as a kid and realizing years later it was a comedy, made it better.
