    I can't help but ponder if there is an alternate universe where Stuart Gordon and Brian Yuzna produced a crazy-ass version of this film for Charles Band with Jeffrey Combs as the inventor dad and Barbara Crampton as the mom.

    Things play out a lot darker in this version and Barbara somehow ends up getting naked and fondled by a giant insect.

    This notion is a lot more intriguing than the actual movie I watched, which is pretty bland despite…

    One of those rare live action kids films from my youth that somehow aged very gracefully and even improved over time. Now I can share it with my kids who are about the same age I was the first time I saw this fun little chunk of escapism.

    This was still a blast,
    Kids loved it to pieces.
    Definitely one of the coolest kids films ever made.

    Childhood memory.
    And a pretty dear one, at that.
    it can never get anything less than completely awesome!

    So apparently there's a reason I don't remember anything from this movie... it's terrible. I know I'd seen this as a kid, but didn't have a single mental image of what it was like and so when it came on TV the other day, I thought "Why not?". I should have asked "Why?" instead as it was a complete waste of time. Whoever decided that children love movies where the child protagonists run around screaming and being rude, while nothing…

    Having seen it a few weeks before, I couldn't help comparing this to Jurrasic World and being amazed at just how much the mega hit falls short, and how much more important and solid script is over special effects.

    Both films are effects driven family adventure movies and it is unarguable that Honey, I Shrunk the Kids video effects haven't aged well, the very fact that phisical sets were built for the kids to have there adventure is far more…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Directed by, Joe Johnston and staring Rick Moranis, Matt Frewer, Marcia Strassman, Kristine Sutherland, Thomas Wilson Brown, Amy O'Neil, Robert Oliveri, and Jared Rushton this comedy surprised me with how good it actually was. The best thing about it would definitely be the special effects after the kids shrink making a lawn look like a jungle.

    The story is simple enough as Rick Moranis is inventing a shrink ray that doesn't shrink, but instead makes the object explode. The next…

    Somehow I missed this when I was younger, but I enjoyed watching it with my own kids, who are the perfect age for this (9 and 11 - arguably a little old, actually). The effects have definitely aged but for 1989, it's pretty impressive stuff.

    Most of the characters are stereotypes and very thinly drawn - here's looking at you Matt Frewer - and it's a shame they didn't let Rick Moranis off the chain more. I kept hoping to…

    Still fun but not as big as I used to find it.

    Sí, la película ha envejecido un poco mal y tal vez la calificación que le doy es meramente por el factor nostálgico, pero una cosa si es cierta y es que los efectos prácticos de esta película es su gran fuerte, aún cuando han pasado más de veinte años, toda la escena de los niños encogidos y su travesía por el patio hasta llegar a su casa se siente tan bien que es imposible no volver a emocionarse con esta gran película familiar made in Disney.
