It's hard to say what's better about the first half of Alexander Payne's wonderfully weird – or is it weirdly wonderful?In "Downsizing" he's made a movie about really small people, as in five inches tall.It's called downsizing, and it's irreversible – but if enough people do it, it could save humanity. Ultimate Everyman Paul Safranek (Matt Damon), an occupational therapist at an Omaha meat company, watches the news on television with astonishment.Entire communities have sprouted up around the world. Paul and his wife, Audrey (Kristen Wiig), childless and still living in the house where Paul grew up, attend a school reunion. Suddenly, Paul's now-five-inch friend, Dave (Jason Sudeikis), and his wife are wheeled in. Paul and Audrey go visit Leisureland, a top-notch downsized community, and a saleswoman explains how they'd suddenly be multi-millionaires, able to afford a mansion with a pool and tennis court.
