In this fun sci-fi/comedy from 1987, a hard-partying fighter pilot (Dennis Quaid) volunteers for a top-secret experiment, in which he is to be shrunk down to microscopic size and injected into a rabbit. Things go awry when terrorists disrupt the experiment, and the pilot finds himself injected into a hypochondriac supermarket clerk instead (Martin Short).
When industrial spies steal one of the two microchips needed to reverse the process, the two, along with the pilot's girlfriend (Meg Ryan), have 24 hours to find the stolen microchip before the pilot uses up his oxygen supply.
