A memorable scene from the trailer does not appear in the final film: A group of down-sized people are drinking from a life-sized bottle of Vodka, which in the "small" world would hold the comparative volume of hundreds of gallons. See more »

I saw potential, but trailer was misleading to me...
After seeing the trailer and prior to that not knowing a thing about this movie, I took the wife last night. I loved the concept and saw many funny people (Kristin Wiig, Jason Sudeikis, among others) in the trailer and thought it would be fun. While I wouldn't say it was a bad movie, it was SLOW and really didn't provide many laughs. Seemed to be another movie trying to push down an agenda regarding global warming and conservation rather than being a fun escape for 2 hours. If you like the actors, you might like the movie, but if you're expecting something with a comedic slant, I'd say you'll be disappointed.
