The Incredible Shrinking Woman

Last week I was looking at what movies were going to be aired on HBO and I noticed The Incredible Shrinking Woman was going to be on. This movie (along with Strange Brew and Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory) was one of my favorites when I was a kid, so I set the Tivo to record it.

Small IS beautiful.

Today I finally got around to watching it. I don't really have anything to write about the movie, but I do want to mentioned that I felt extreme disappointment when I remembered that Charles Grodin played Lily Tomlin's husband in the film.

If, at this point, you're asking yourself what is wrong with Charles Grodin, it is clear to me you don't know what he's been up to lately. These days he fancies himself a journalist and a humorist. You can listen to some of his recent radio commentaries online.

If you listen to them and find one that is - by any stretch of the imagination - entertaining, insightful or informational, please leave a comment. Of course, I will reject your comment as it would be evidence that you have criminally bad taste and I'd rather appear to have no readers than readers like that. But please comment.

I was first picturing Charles Nelson Reilly, which would have been way more awesome.

And you know his radio commentaries would be amazing.
