Facts about the this movie:

 

*Opening Weekend: $4,739,000 (USA) (1603 Screens)

*Gross: $25,893,810 (USA)

*The filmmakers used two different shopping malls for the scene where the doctor injects Tuck into Jack's rear. The opening scenes where the doctor runs in and heads for the elevator were shot in the Northridge Mall in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles (also the epicenter of the '94 quake). The scene where he reaches the top and rams the syringe into Jack was filmed on the top floor of the Sherman Oaks Galleria, another mall several miles away.

*The patients in the doctor's waiting room with Jack are played by Andrea Martin and Joe Flaherty, Martin Short's co-stars from SCTV Channel.

 

*When they are shrinking Tuck Pendleton, the lab's instrumentation shows a reading on the screen that is five interlinked hexagons (two top, three bottom). This is the symbol that the "Combined Minature Deterrent Forces", or CMDF, also used in the movie Fantastic Voyage.

 

*William Schallert was cast as Jack's doctor as an in-joke since he had played a doctor in The Incredible Shrinking Man.

 

*Amy Irving was married to Steven Spielberg at the time, and when he showed her the script, she desperately wanted to play the role of Lydia Maxwell.

 

*The only film directed by Joe Dante to win an Academy Award.

 

*After Gremlins, this movie marked the third collaboration between Joe Dante and Michael Finnell with Steven Spielberg.

 

*Dennis Quaid and Meg Ryan met on the set of this movie. They were married in 1991.

*All of the cells seen outside the pod were in fact made out of Jello according to Peter Kuran, the special effects supervisor.

 

*The film was shot mostly on sound stages with the exception of one month of location filming in San Fransisco, Marin County and the Galleria Mall.

 

*The lab workers seen during the scene where Dennis Quaid is about to be miniaturized were in fact real laboratory workers, as actors would not have been suitable to performing what real lab rats do.
