Wayne Szalinski is a clumsy genius who comes up with new gadgets and experiments all the time, but something usually goes wrong and gets Wayne and his family into trouble, danger and fantastical adventure.
Barbara Alyn Woods,
When his parents have to go out of town, Dennis stays with Mr. and Mrs. Wilson. The little menace is driving Mr. Wilson crazy, but Dennis is just trying to be helpful. Even to the thief who's arrived in town.
Wayne Szalinski is at it again. But instead of shrinking things, he tries to make a machine that can make things grow. As in the first one, his machine isn't quite accurate. But when he brings Nick & his toddler son Adam to see his invention, the machine unexpectedly starts working. And when Adam comes right up to the machine, he gets zapped along with his stuffed bunny. Now, whenever Adam comes near anything electrical, the electricity causes him to grow. Adam soon starts to grow to the height of over 100 feet. And he is now walking through Las Vegas which he thinks is one big play land. Written by
At the beginning of the film, when Wayne first goes into Adam's room, the meowing Kit-Cat Clock (from Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989)) can be seen in the upper-left corner of the screen. See more »
The final scene--and the punchline--of the first film features the shrinking machine in reverse, and the family feasts on enlarged food. In fact, reversing the effects of the machine is how the kids went from tiny to normal size. In the second film, Wayne is working for a company that is testing a completely different machine that will enlarge things, and the shrink machine is in storage. It is never explained why simply reversing his shrink machine wasn't the answer. See more »

The people at Disney are smart when it comes to making money. They knew that when "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" was a real financial success, they could do the opposite thing and it would also bring in more bucks. And it did. However, the story has a big problem, which is mentioned by others. Everything is predicated on a baby, getting to be 100 feet high, reacting to things like a baby would to colors and light and interesting objects. The problem is that the joke gets stale about half way through the movie. When the little big guy becomes a threat, it gets sort of serious. It's up to Wayne to figure something out. If you don't want to use your brain at all, go see this. Otherwise, save a few buck and check out something with a little substance.
