    Man, 1989 is getting to be a long time ago. There's one scene where the girl gets wrapped up in a phone cord, like those long springy ones on a wall phone in the kitchen, you know those ones. But they don't really exist any more.

    My niece wanted to see it and it was on Netflix so...

    It's a fine kids movie, I guess, but the most fascinating thing about it is that the idea came from the twisted minds of Stuart Gordon and Brian Yuzna

    Later we watched a few minutes from one of the sequels (We Shrunk Ourselves) and it was incredible how much worse and lame it was compared to the original.

    This is quality filmmaking that also happens to be family-friendly without being animated -- a rare combination these days. Funny, silly at times, heartfelt, relatable, uncomplicated, adventurous, and entertaining. The practical effects are still incredible as well.

    ...and speaking of special effects (see my reviews for Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Journey to the West) Honey, I Shrunk the Kids is a hell of a lot of fun if for nothing but them. Probably filmed at about the peak of practical special effects, and while I'm glad we have films like Planet of the Apes with amazingly realistic effects, I'm also glad I can go back to this with something that's just comes across as pure joy.

    Great practical effects and genuine peril make this a pretty solid family adventure film.

    Watched this classic with my kids. Man do I feel old, watching movies I enjoyed as a kid with my kids. We enjoyed it.

    A very goofy family film with some very neat production design. While creatively done and nostalgic for many viewers, this film came a little before my time, and so I'm not the right person to appreciate all this late-1980s cheese. Still, it's cute.

    This movie is so great. It reminds me of a time where there could be movies without CGI and totally rock the boat. A+++

    Impressive-ish effects and hit-or-miss jokes abound in this film in which Rick Moranis is taller than his co-stars for once.
