Walt Disney Pictures was on board to produce Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, with Stuart Gordon attached to direct. However, Gordon became ill and dropped out, prompting Smith to recommend former ILM art director Joe Johnston as his replacement. Johnston suggested changes to the screenplay, which he found too special effects-heavy and lacking in dimensional characters, and Tom Schulman was brought on for a rewrite. See more »

I rememeber seeing this film in summer 1989 in the movie theater when I was still in elementary school. On the big screen the FX are so cool! They don't translate as well on the small screen, though. It's also funny to see the Matt Frewer character making pot shots at Rick Moranis's character. The shrunken kids' adventure to cross the yard is also cool. The Roger Rabbit short "Tummy Trouble" before the start of the film is an added bonus! Great Disney fun!
