Description

From Academy Award winner Alexander Payne (The Descendants, Nebraska) comes the hilarious film that delivers big comedy... and small Matt Damon. When scientists find a way to shrink humans to five inches tall, Paul Safranek (Academy Award winner Matt Damon) and his wife Audrey (Kristen Wiig) decide to ditch their stressed out lives in order to get small and live large in a luxurious downsized community. Filled with life-changing adventures and endless possibilities, Leisureland offers more than riches, as Paul discovers a whole new world and realizes that we are meant for something bigger. Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz (Django Unchained) also stars in this tremendously entertaining and original film.

  • Could have been something......

    The previews are cherry picked moments of........... some other movie, this movie has no comedy at all, there is no point in the movie, Matt Damon should be ashamed to have his name in the credits. I have rarely watched a movie that forces me to warn others to not watch it, but this is the one, stay away, watch a couple hours of C-SPAN instead.
  • Not awful

    I’m not sure why people did not like this movie. I think it showed true nature of all people. Those in it for the money, those for the party, and those humanist. The main character has no idea who he is until the end. He is just a lost soul trying to find his way. So if that is not your type of movie then don’t see it.
  • It wasn’t too bad

    I’m not a big fan of this movie, so I wasn’t that excited to see it, but it wasn’t so bad to the point where I could only give it one star. I just thought it was boring.

    Felt as though I should of been the one being paid to watch this garbage! So disappointing! Could of been a good film, however they really dropped the ball with this one. If possible would give it negative star:(
  • Different Concept

    I don’t know why the reviews for this movie are so horrible. I absolutely loved it! I loved the concept and the comical lines addd throughout the movie. You can compare it to Honey I Shrunk the Kids or Honey I Shrunk myself but it’s a completely different storyline. I felt the ending could have been a little better but overall I really enjoyed it. A movie for the entire family to enjoy despite some of the bad language.

    This was a fun concept but the actual movie was boring and nothing like the trailer and never really went anywhere. It kind of just fizzled out at the end and then the credits started to roll. If you hate comedy and love random blips of fun ideas followed by a wave of pointless filler scenes, then this movie is for you...

    Шhэп і lоокэd ат тhэ тгаіІэг I thought it was more of an upbeat kind of comedy but the movie and acting was pretty lousy. I went to see it and came out unimpressed, so I wouldn’t recommend seeing it or wasting money on it.
  • Music was horrible too

    Many people have talked about the story on here (which I agree does not live up to its promises in the trailer) --but seriously: the music choices for the movie were SO bad. Classical music, ok. But just all the wrong pieces and recordings. Sounded like a music supervisor got his assistant on the job. REALLY bad.
  • Small is not beautiful

    Alexander Payne has written-directed some fine movies with sharp social commentary. This is not one of them. After spending a lot of time meticulously setting up its promising premise, it bizarrely ditches all that and goes on for a much longer time being a meandering, muddled mess that seems like an entirely different movie, and not a very interesting one. Hard to say what Payne thought he was up to, but whatever it was, he failed pretty spectacularly.

    Preview looked interesting. What a let down. Did not make sense. Not a good movie. Don’t waste your time or money.
