The scientist father of a teenage girl and boy accidentally shrinks his and two other neighborhood teens to the size of insects. Now the teens must fight diminutive dangers as the father searches for them.
On the brink of perfecting his state-of-the-art matter-shrinking machine, the suburban paterfamilias and indefatigable inventor, Professor Wayne Szalinski, realises that his device truly works, when it zaps both his kids and their friends. Now, to return to the relative safety of their home while being reduced to a mere quarter-inch size, the minuscule humans must venture out into the dense and perilous landscapes of their now-immense backyard--a hostile environment where nearly everything spells trouble. Can the kids exit the green maze of grass in one piece?Written by
If we take the ages of the actors as the ages of their characters, Matt Frewer's character Big Russ Thompson would have been only 14 when little Russ was born and his wife would have only been 16 as Frewer was born in 1959, Thomas Wilson Brown was born in 1972, and Kristine Sutherland was born in 1957.

Or as my mom would say "cute". This is by far one of the finest family films I have ever seen. I consider "Toy Story" and "Babe: Pig In The City" as its only rivals for my favorite family film. Anyway, it's by far a very enjoyable movie, with nice special effects (the giant insects) and a real play-fun spirit like the part where they eat a giant oreo cookie or slept in the lego block. The kids are indeed very likeable, and the movie even has a sense of adventure. I'll never forget the giant (well, giant to them anyway) water drops that were terrorizing them and Amy slowly falling into a pool of mud and grime(and the grimy pool with the dead ant floating in it they found earlier). I'll always remember the funny way the dad said "Russel!" and the overviewed music they had at the beginning where they first saw the large outside or Wayne's shouting of "Get off the grass!!". I really can think of very few things I didn't like about this film. I now wonder exactly how many times they had a shrinking story (from an episode of a show or a video game etc.) that had the words "Honey, I Shrunk The .....". I recommend it to your kids. They won't be disappointed. A 10/10. Nice sequel too.
Could it possibly be that in the movie "Dinosaur" when he was dodging the fireballs that was a reference to this movie with how they were dodging the water drops?
