About the Movie

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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The film, having launched a sprightly comic conceit, lets it glide away. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Dec 26, 2017

Rotten: It's a movie in which too-muchness ends up being not-enoughness, since the script lacks a vital center. – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, Dec 22, 2017

Fresh: Damon is in prime everyman mode as Paul, a good guy with a good heart who wouldn't mind catching a break, a big break, just once. – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times, Dec 21, 2017

Fresh: While Downsizing is not not about the end of human life on earth, it confronts the prospect with minimal sentiment, and uses it to ask questions about what the good life might consist of, here and now. – Henry K. Miller, Sight and Sound, Jan 29, 2018

One Star is Overly Generous

I do not often post reviews however I just came from the movie theater after buying the tickets to this movie. Dreadful. It is an interesting concept for a movie, but failed to live up to its promise. The casting was bad and the acting was awkward - even Matt Damon’s performance did not impress.

Don't watch!!

I was very excited for this movie and was interested by its concept. The movie starts off quite well tell you start notice that its getting worse and worse. The movie consept its self was great but they did not know at all how to exicute it. The movie took me to different places every 30 minutes and it felt like it couldn't get worse, oh but I knew I was wrong when they started a love scene. Over all terrible movie and I wish they could of made it better.


Going into the theater I was excited, but after sitting through almost three hours of straight boringness and lack of climax, this movie made me want to never see another Matt Damon movie. People actually got up and left in the middle of the movie it was that bad. It is nothing like the trailers, and all the good actors are only in a fraction of the movie. It was a waste of my money and time and I 100% regret seeing it.
