    "Hey wait! I get it! FRENCH CLASS!"

    There's nothing really more to say about this film other than it's perfectly executed escapism. It has a job, to entertain, and does it with gusto, thanks to some wonderfully inventive set-pieces and a likeable cast of actors.

    It's also worth mentioning that it's the only film that has made me sympathetic towards the creature I fear most... the ant.

    25 years later and this movie still holds up. The writing and performances - especially by the kids are great. Bottom line: The imagination that went into this movie is hard to beat - no CGI here folks and that's what makes this one all the more special to watch.

    Another rewatch from my Recorded Off T.V. list.
    H, ISTK is a good adventure that gets really hampered by unlikeable kids.
    I've felt this way about it ever since seeing it in 1989.
    As a kid, I always wanted to go along on the adventure but I didn't what to hang out with those kids.
    Watching it today with my wife & son, what I enjoyed most were the performances by Rick Moranis & Matt Frewer.

    A great family film, and one of my childhood favourites. I wish I could ride a giant ant!

    A film about the slowest and laziest kids going. It takes them a whole day to walk 3 miles? But who knew Ants could be so cute?

    "Nick Szalinski: We're now a quarter of an inch tall, and 64 feet from the house. That's an equivalent of three-point-two miles. That's a long way. Even for a man of science."

    Joe Johnston's suburban SciFi adventure is not as good as I remember but it still holds up pretty well thanks to a fun concept, charming effects and nostalgia. 6/10.

    Before Disney decided to make Ant-Man, they made Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, a film that pointed out that being 1/4 inch tall would not be cool, but would actually be the worst thing in the world. The film of course mines the concept for fun family adventure, but where the film really holds up is how amazing the sets are, and how the film creates a world that seems big, or small.
