Not a "zero" in family entertainment, not at all, but not great, either
5 May 2011 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

The Hellers (Marcia Strassman and Sam J. Jones are the parents) are having their troubles. Mom is the main breadwinner while her inventor husband looks for work and dreams big. Their teenage son is having difficulty at school and their young daughter is overly ga-ga about video games. A shy, retiring Dr. Mobius (Pat Morita) watches over the son at school, from time to time. One day, aliens come down and want to take some earthlings back home. Wouldn't you know, they have a nifty hand-held "shrinker" that turns folks into mouse-size. But, after turning the Heller parents into "shrinks", haha, the teenage son protects his sister by grabbing the device and turning the main alien into a very small one, too. Now, the two Heller kids go off in search of Dr. Mobius, for his help in getting their parents back to normal and kicking some alien bottoms. Can the Doc help? This is a cute little film, not especially great, but, not bad either. The actors are one of the best elements, especially Jones who is quite funny. The other items, costumes, sets, special effects, script and direction, are okay but nothing extraordinary. If your family likes such films as Honey I Shrunk the Kids or Slow Moe, they will probably go for this one, also. Sometimes, a new view makes all the difference in the proverbial "Mommy, I'm bored!".
