How can I resize an entire PDF document?

I have Adobe CS4 design premium, and I need to resize a 17"x11" PDF catalog to 11"x8.5".  If there is a way to do this in Acrobat, I haven't found it and I've looked pretty hard.  I don't want to have to edit 1 page at a time in Illustrator, but if that's the only way, then so be it (I know how to do this, I just don't want to).

The original document is 127 MB (ridiculous) and I've reduced it all the way down to 10 MB without affecting screen viewing quality.  I need to get the file down to around 2-3 MB, but for some reason, neither Acrobat's optimization program nor it's reduce file size program will downsample the 300 dpi images.  (that's another story all together)

So, in conclusion, I need to reduce the dimensions of the entire document at one time in order to improve viewing experience and download time.

Thanks!

You can't resize pdf file in Acrobat Professional. You can print document to file, setting desired page size and then re-distill it. There are also 3rd party software which can resize pdf documents, for example nitropdf.
