Storyline

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 <jcobra3@hotmail.com>

Trivia

When Dr. Hendrickson makes a second attempt to shoot Adam with a tranquilizer, it hits the Hard Rock Café guitar giving Adam a painful electrocution shock. The electrocution shock could had given Adam nerve pain and could had killed him. See more »

Goofs

Wayne tells Nick about the reason why he made them all promise to never tell anyone that him and his sister (which would have included the neighbors children) were once shrunk and lost to them (which happened in the original.) When Wayne brings that up to Nick, he claims that they were "shrunk and lost for two days", when in fact, that only happened for one day. See more »

Repurposed horror doesn't quite work
30 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Wayne Szalinski (Rick Moranis) is at it again in Nevada. His house is full of his inventions. His wife Diane (Marcia Strassman) takes their daughter Amy away to college. His son Nick pines for the lovely Mandy Park (Keri Russell). Wayne has licensed his invention to Sterling Labs but they have trouble enlarging. While Wayne and Nick work on the machine, little Adam gets zapped without their knowledge. Soon Adam is growing larger and larger as he wrecks havoc upon Las Vegas.

There is something fun and magical about kids shrunk down living in the small world. A giant baby isn't the same thing. It plays differently like a B-horror hybrid. I'm not sure why the sister comes and then leaves the movie. Maybe she had something better to do. Also I don't like putting a corporation and military into the mix. It has some fun moments but it gets more and more tiresome.
