Attack of the 50 Foot Woman may well be one of the worst science-fiction films of all time, but that's not to say that it isn't thoroughly enjoyable.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Hell hath no fury like a scorned woman, especially one who could avoid a divorce altogether by merely stepping on you."
‑ Rob Humanick,
"...has little to offer even the most ardent fan of trash cinema."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Hanna and Juran make up for their lack of supernatural thrills by packing lots of talking, fighting, dancing and drinking -- as well as a few lame jokes -- into the movie's harmless 65 minutes."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Her towering torso wrapped in a makeshift sarong apparently manufactured from bed sheets, Hayes is a nightmare caricature of the rolling pin-wielding wife tracking down an errant husband. 'It's Mrs. Archer! She's on a rampage!' cries the town doctor."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"At once a riotously awful sci-fi failure and a deliriously sexy pulp success."
‑ David Cornelius,
"Cheesy fun."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"The acting is campy and the plot doesn't make sense: Hayes grows to King Kong-size but still somehow manages to fit in her bedroom!"
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"Campy cult proves that Hell hath no fury like a 50 foot woman scorned."
‑ Kam Williams, NewsBlaze
"Old-school camp craziness of the tallest and most feminine variety."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
