Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film's major difficulty is the screenplay by Jane Wagner."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"The Incredible Shrinking Woman is not inane, is sometimes wickedly knowing, and is only periodically boring."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Is it a satire or a farce?"
