What can be said about Honey, I Shrunk the Kids? Well it's a classic sci-fi family story invovling an accident with a shrink ray. Throw it in with a backyard and you have yourself a jungle where the smallest everyday animals, insects, and of course lawn-mowers can lead you to death (You know for kids!). But, joking aside this film took an idea (shrinking) that had recently picked up with the 80's... read more

Honey, This Is Why It Ranked #5 At The Box Office

Throughout the history of cinema, family films went from being timeless classics that hold up to this day (i.e. The Wizard of Oz) to being sophomoric, bland, etc. (i.e. I can't think of anything...) And what about Honey, I Shrunk the Kids? Well, during the 80's and a good bit of the 90's, this movie was a big deal, especially when it was fresh, leading to a few parodies on Saturday morning cartoon... read more

“Me cuesta ver el Hate de algunos de mis añadidos, no solo por cariño personal, sino porque la película esta muy bien hecha, de las direcciones mas precisas que he visto, sumado a una historia algo absurda, pero que se conetca bien, y no dura tanto para hacerse insoportable, al contrario es disfrutable.” read more

“If you are looking for a daft but entertaining film, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids fits that criteria like a glove. True, some parts are a little slow and sappy, and there are a lot of daft moments. Nonetheless, it is great fun, thanks to the in general fast pace, and the breeziness of the film. The camera work is well done, the soundtrack is pleasurable to the ears, I loved the clever animated opening credits sequence and there is a cheerful spirit here that have been absent in films like this(ie. Problem Child 2, Home Alone 4, Beethoven's 4th). The acting is not bad at all either, Rick Moranis especially is wonderfully nutty and likable as Wayne while Matt Frewer is hilarious as "Big" Russell" Thompson. The kids do give appealing performances too, and the special effects are well above averag” read more
