A hapless store clerk must foil criminals to save the life of the man who, miniaturized in a secret experiment, was accidentally injected into him.
The filmmakers used two different shopping malls for the scene where the doctor injects Tuck into Jack's rear. The opening scenes where the doctor runs in and heads for the elevator were shot in the Northridge Mall in the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles (also the epicenter of the '94 quake). The scene where he reaches the top and rams the syringe into Jack was filmed on the top floor of the Sherman Oaks Galleria, another mall several miles away.
Putter, don't be a Putz! Get in here!
When Ozzie staggers out of the elevator and injects the pod into Jack, the needle enters in the middle of his left buttock, through his pants. However, when Dr. Canker is reviewing what are presumably security camera photos from the mall, Jack is shown being injected very high on his left buttock (almost into his lower back), and through the waistband of his jacket.
The Special Effects credit at the end of the movie states "Mr Short's Interiors by Industrial Light and Magic".
