If you file is too big, I think Kubjazz created a poly-reducing script sometime.

However it may not work how you want it to, in that case you'll have to reduce polys manualy.    :(

odp04y is right, there's a poly reducer plugin: http://www.anim8or.com/smf/index.php?topic=1705.msg12724#msg12724

It should do what you need to do, but it has certain limitations... First, the topology of the reduced mesh will be really, really messy... And the script is very slow so if you need to reduce a 2000 poly mesh, don't even try this one. You can also try out Terranim8or, I believe it has a poly reducer...

And something else might help too. It might make the model look a bit goofy. Drag and select all of the points in your model and use the merge points function. Repeat if necessary, and then double click on your model and increase the smoothing angle to 90 or even 180 if you need more "smoothness"
