Plot Outline:

With overpopulation threatening mankind, scientists have discovered a way to shrink people to just 5 inches, in order to save resources and space. Paul and his wife, Audrey, see this as an opportunity to escape their stressed-out lives in order to shrink themselves and live in mini-luxury at a government-run downsizing community - but this new, small life comes with its own set of adventures. -- Chris Kavan

I’m Dusan Mirkovic, your neighbor.
Neighbors are friends.
Friends tell friends the truth.
Okay, maybe sometimes I’m a little bit asshole,

The first half hour or so you look with child-like amazement at it all. Just like children who visit “It...

Downszining gets downgraded.

What an incredibly boring movie. ***spoiler*** there are no adventures. No threats, nothing to make this remotely interesting. It might stimulate some conversations with those who have seen it.

But the lack of any reason to care what happens next might have you wondering when something is going to happen, and then when is this thing over. Some of the special effects are good, but kind of misplaced as well, a lot of perspective shots so you get the sense of the differenc...
