The top-secret test of a sub-miniaturization process goes wildly awry in this comic adventure when industrial spies steal the technology and the daring pilot (Dennis Quaid) of the world's first molecular-sized craft is accidentally injected into the bloodstream of a hypochondriac grocery store clerk (Martin Short). Now with only a 24-hour supply of oxygen, an atom-sized test pilot must convince the nerd in whose body he is trapped how to be a hero in order to recover the stolen technology, convince the pilot's girlfriend (Meg Ryan) that he loves her ... and save both men from a grisly death. Winner of an Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.

Certified Fresh82%
Critics Consensus: A manic, overstuffed blend of sci-fi, comedy, and romance, Innerspace nonetheless charms, thanks to Martin Short's fine performance and the insistent zaniness of the plot.

Common Sense Says
'80s sci-fi adventure comedy has some drinking, swearing.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Innerspace is a fun, if often silly, sci-fi adventure from the '80s about a miniaturized pilot (Dennis Quaid) who winds up injected inside the body of a neurotic store clerk (Martin Short) when an experiment goes awry. They face frequent peril from sometimes-menacing bad guys; violence includes one gunshot death (minimal blood), threats of pain and torture, fights, and more. There's also a fair bit of language (including "s--t"), drinking, and sexuality (including a shot of Quaid naked from behind), but the movie's overall tone is light, and the goofy humor will appeal to tweens.
