Norwegian scientists develop the technology to shrink humans to five inches in an effort to combat global overpopulation. The permanent procedure also provides the bonus of a more economical lifestyle, since smaller things cost less.

Hoping for a better life, Paul (Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to abandon their old lives. Unfortunately for Paul, downsizing comes with a new list of complications, including Audrey backing out at the last minute.

  • 1 star "Movie started out promising, but quickly downsized. Waste of 2 hours. Honey, I Shrunk the Kids blows this move out of the water! When Kristen Wiig checks out, that's when I checked out. Movie was just stupid after that. In my opinion probably the worst Matt Damon movie he has been in."
  • 5 stars "Brilliant film and poignant with regards to current events in the world."
  • 2 stars "It’s interesting when people say if you do not enjoy a movie like this, you must not be intelligent. No, maybe they are intelligent, but they just don’t enjoy the same style of movie as you? Be careful you don’t end up sounding like Donald Trump - if you have to constantly let people know how smart you are, you probably are not as smart as you think you are."
