Honey, I Shrunk the Kids #5 - If you were my brother, I'd put myself up for adoption.

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Appreciation Thread



About the Movie
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids is a 1989 science fiction family film. The directorial debut of Joe Johnston and produced by Walt Disney Pictures, it tells the story of an inventor who accidentally shrinks his and his neighbor's kids to ¼ of an inch with his electromagnetic shrinking machine and throws them out into the backyard with the trash and the kids must venture into their backyard to return home while fending off against insects and other obstacles.

Rick Moranis stars as Wayne Szalinski, the inventor who accidentally shrinks his children, Amy (Amy O'Neill) and Nick (Robert Oliveri). Marcia Strassman portrays his wife, Diane, to whom he delivers the titular line. Matt Frewer, Kristine Sutherland, Thomas Wilson Brown, and Jared Rushton star as Russ, Mae, Russ Jr., and Ron Thompson, the Szalinskis' next-door neighbors.

The film became an unexpected box office success, grossing in excess of $222 million worldwide, and became the highest-grossing live-action Disney film ever, a record it held for five years. It was met with positive reviews from both critics and audiences, who praised the story, visuals and innovation. Its success spawned two sequels Honey, I Blew Up the Kid in 1992 and Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves in 1997, which both received mixed to negative critical reception, as well as leading to the creation of a TV show that ran from 1997 to 2000.

This movie is truly the best for cheering yourself up, leveling anxiety, or just having a chilled out day. Especially if you haven't watched in a long time.

Exactly. I watched it early this past year for the first time in years and it was such a delight. Brought back so many wonderful memories.

Same here, over the summer. Saved my life. The sparring/romance between the older sister and neighborhood boy was great to see again.

Also, the scene where people are noticing Rick Moranis' character and his wife floating above their backyard with head flashlights and magnifying glasses.

This movie needs a special edition.

I am flabbergasted that it has never gotten one. There has to be stuff out there.

Disney does some great DVDs, but the movies like this don't get the royal treatment. Not fair.

And I still don't know why. I have seen BTS photos and production photos. Someone was documenting stuff. Hopefully there is video out there somewhere. They can do new interviews too.

All in all, I would say the parents (including the neighbors) handled the fact that their kids were miniaturized and in the backyard pretty well! Lol.
