Our Score
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.


A scientist perfects a device for making objects grow when they come into contact with electricity. Unfortunately, his two-year-old son is accidentally turned into a giant and goes on the rampage through the streets of Las Vegas. Disney comedy sequel, starring Rick Moranis, Marcia Strassman, Robert Oliveri and Lloyd Bridges.
