A rather ballsy fighter pilot Lt. Tuck Penelton (Dennis Quaid) is chosen for a miniaturization experiment and shrunken down to be tiny. He's some thugs come in and steal the syringe that houses mini Tuck and his vessel and the machinery for the experiment. Then they inject mini Tuck into a dorky hypochondriac called Jack Putter (Martin Short). Then Tuck has one heck of a mission trying to convince Jack that he's real and that he needs to help. Jack being a grocery store clerk has no experience in stealing back the machinery so it's quite comical. Not as funny as some comedies but it's definitely strange, it's like sci-fi All of Me only a bit better I think.
