Ten most fantastic film worlds of Dennis Quaid
Inside Martin Short
As test pilot Tuck Pendleton, the Quaid goes on a most fantastic voyage in Joe Dante's Innerspace when he's miniaturized and then injected into the ass of a grocery clerk played by Martin Short. That offers the chance to illustrate, via special effects, the old saw about true beauty being what's on the inside -- blood vessels and organs, mostly. Once he's in there, he can communicate with Short's character, tap into his optic nerve to observe the outside world and even change Short's appearance through some sort of sci-fi macguffin. That's all relatively believable, but naming the villain Victor Scrimshaw? Come on, now you're just fucking with us.
