Barbara Alyn Woods,
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
The scene when Adam was about to put the car in his mouth and Nick said, "Adam, don't eat us", was a nod to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989) in which Nick said, "Dad, don't eat me". See more »
When Dr. Hendrickson asks Wayne Szalinski what language Adam was speaking he responds Yugoslavian. There is no such language as Yugoslavian. The official languages of Yugoslavia, before it broke up into separate countries, are Serbo-Croation, Slovenian, and Macedonian. See more »
Why are you closing the shutters?
So one of the neighbors doesn't look in, see a 7 foot baby, and call the National Enquirer.

One of the neighbors.
So far your plan has been working perfectly.

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.
