Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Incredible Shrinking Woman

A housewife is exposed to an excess of household products, including those her husband brings home from his advertising firm. As a result of her exposure to all these chemicals, she begins to shrink--imperceptibly at first. Gradually she is small enough to fit into her daughter's dollhouse! The housewife comes up with funny and creative ways of coping with her "short comings." The zany movie is set against a colorful, cartoon-like, larger-than-life backdrop.
