Movie Info

This made-for-cable remake of the cult favorite 1957 film of the same name is updated with an even more feminist slant and has a more thoughtful (and clever) script. Nancy Archer (Darryl Hannah) is a rich but troubled young woman married to a cheating lowlife who only stays with her for her money. She is driving home by herself one night when an alien spaceship lands on the road. She is irradiated by the ship and over the next few days starts to grow taller and taller, until she reaches a height of 50 feet. She uses her newfound height (and power) to take revenge on those who have wronged her -- especially husband Harry (Daniel Baldwin) and the trashy, gold-digging bimbo (Christi Conaway) he has taken up with.

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1) large that it verges on parody, though there is sympathy enough for the subject to prevent it from becoming ridiculous.

February 5, 2020 | Full Review…

Not nearly as bad as the original, and that's not good.

January 4, 2005 | Rating: 2/5

The original enterained unconsciously. This tries too hard and thinks it's too clever.

Audience Reviews for Attack of the 50 Foot Woman


Daryl Hannah. I don't know what else needs to be said. It's a B-movie all the way. Simple story, cheesy acting, and... Daryl Hannah. You'll forget about the plot before the movie's even over, but it will reinforce that Daryl Hannah is one of the most beautiful women to ever grace the screen.
