    I would have loved to eavesdrop on the script conferences for "Innerspace." Here is an absurd, unwieldy, overplotted movie that nevertheless is entertaining - and some of the fun comes from the way the plot keeps laying it on. show more

    There is more than enough energy here to sustain the film over its two-hour course. [3 July 1987, p.AC]
