Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman
Release Date: 1993
Genre: Sci-Fi
Director(s): Christopher Guest (Best in Show, A Mighty Wind)
Writer(s): Joseph Dougherty
Starring: Daryl Hannah, Daniel Baldwin

Although Christopher Guest would go onto direct and write incredible comedies like Waiting for Guffman and Best in Show started in the mid-90s, 1993 was a different year for the man. Not yet embraced by the independent film world as the genius he’s proven himself to be, Guest didn’t exactly get to craft his own motion pictures. As a result, there’s Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman. Produced by HBO Films, this remake of the terrible original is notable only because it stars Daryl Hannah and Daniel Baldwin.

Set in or around the 1950s, Darryl Hannah plays Nancy Archer, a meek young woman who allows her cheating husband (Baldwin) and greedy father to walk all over her. She’s the prototypical anti-feminist character, or at least up until she wanders into the desert one night while upset. It’s there that she sees a UFO. Naturally, everyone in town believes she’s crazy, and she’s on the receiving end of anger from everyone she’s close to. On the second trip out there, the UFO makes changes to her, and soon enough, she grows to become fifty feet tall.

Despite being so huge, Nancy is still a small woman on the inside. Now is the time for the feminist crap to be spat, as Nancy grows livid when she discovers that her husband is still cheating on her. So to put herself on the same page as a man, she rampages throughout the city searching for him, intent on killing him when she finds him. This only serves to show that women are not equal, and rather, just emotionally unbalanced creatures. Yeah, they sure do get a positive message across.
Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman is nothing short of irritating. Guest, known for his comedic talents, was handed a screenplay not only bland, but completely lacking a tongue-in-cheek feel to it. Not even he could save this mess.

DVD: The original release was barebones, and I believe the planned re-release is as well.
