'Innerspace' [Blu ray]
(Dennis Quaid, Martin Short, Meg Ryan, Kevin McCarthy, Fiona Lewis, et al / Blu ray / PG / (1987) 2015 / Warner Bros.)

Overview: A hapless store clerk must foil criminals to save the life of the man who, miniaturized in a secret experiment, was accidentally injected into him.

Blu ray Verdict: Basically, Joe Dante reworked 'Fantastic Voyage' into this buddy comedy for Dennis Quaid and Martin Short. Quaid plays a cocky fighter pilot who is chosen to take part in an experiment where he will have to test a miniaturized craft. While inside the machine Quaid is shrunk down to microscopic size. But some bad guys try to hijack the experiment and Quaid winds up injected into the body of a hypochondriac grocery store clerk played by Martin Short. From there, hijinks ensue.

Quaid is annoying, as he almost always was - and still is, for my money! His Joker smile and constant mugging grates on the nerves in the early scenes. He's better when things settle down some. Martin Short is the best part of the cast. Very funny and likable. Always love seeing a pretty young Meg Ryan. Although it reminds me of what she's done to herself since, which is tragic. Kind of the same feeling I get when watching young Melanie Griffith.

A clever script full of plot twists that keeps you guessing throughout, if you haven't seen it before. Like a good Saturday afternoon action movie, not to be taken too seriously and a lot of fun. All in all, 'Innerspace' is a fun movie. Joe Dante gets to play with special effects and comedy, which is right in his wheelhouse, but it's not as interesting, or innovative as 'Fantastic Voyage,' it has to be said. FYI: 'Innerspace' was the only film directed by Joe Dante to win an Academy Award! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.85:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs and comes with the Special Features of:

Commentary with Director Joe Dante, Producer Michael Finnell, Costars Kevin Mccarthy and Robert Picardo and Visual Effects Supervisor Dennis Muren
