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
Adam Szalinski is played by twin brothers Joshua and Daniel Shalikar. Most films and TV shows that involve small children typically cast older children (typically ages 3 and 4) that look younger than they really are, however the Shalikars were 2 years old during the film's production, the same age as the character they were playing was supposed to be, due to the fact that they were fairly easy to work with and took direction well. Dan was noted as being the more adventurous of the two, while Josh was more cautious. See more »
After Adam leaves the house, the US Marshal indicates he is headed towards the Las Vegas Strip when he was actually headed towards Fremont St. which is in downtown Las Vegas. See more »
Was this movie really made in the '90s? The reference to 'The Amazing Colossal Man' is only too fitting, as the visual effects used to realise the premise don't seem to have moved on much since that movie was made.
In a charmless reversal of the first film's plot, Rick Moranis's baby son is zapped and grows to poorly blue-screened proportions, after which he takes a stroll through Las Vegas and picks up model cars. Meanwhile the writers run out of what little inspiration they had to begin with and Lloyd Bridges has the good sense to look embarrassed.
The original film has aged pretty well and is still a lot of fun, whereas whatever enjoyment this tacky follow-up has to offer begins and ends with its poster.
