Honey, I Blew Up the Kid
Film Review
Reviewed By
3 out of 5

After nerdy scientist Rick Moranis accidentally pumps up his son into a 50ft giant, this film is reduced to a one-note romp that almost creaks to a halt. However, until that occurs, there's a well-sustained spirit of infectious enthusiasm, bug-eyed innocence and wild lunacy that harks back to the glory days (the 1950s) of the "creature features". The central idea of a normally harmless child running amok in the adult world is strong, the special effects have their own power and magic, and Moranis himself is reliably goofy.

Plot Summary

Comedy sequel to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, starring Rick Moranis. Eccentric inventor Wayne Szalinski, now living with his family in Las Vegas, mistakenly enlarges his two-year-old son, who continues to grow every time he comes near an electric field.
