Nick's glasses are impractically durable. He has on more than one occasion while shrunk where they could've been broken in any way, shape and form, especially after being flung in the air not once but twice (from being on a runaway Bee and after nearly being chopped to death by a Lawnmower), his glasses would've had some kind of damage on them, like a scratched or cracked lens or warped out of shape.

BAD - In the first half of the film, the kids were annoying at times, picking on each other; the teen romance was slightly sappy, and all three fathers in the film were pictured as stupid nerds. That's PC bigotry. They never picture mothers like that, only the fathers.
GOOD - At least those nerdy parents were loving parents who cared about their kids. And, at least they were together, unlike most Hollywood films in the past 35 years. The little kid with the glasses was neat. Some of the special effects were good. The sight of parents trying to find their kids in the backyard while suspended in the air was funny. Matt Frewer had a great line, while observing Rick Moranis: "What a waste of skin!" The film had a nice ending.
OVERALL - Nothing super, but overall was an enjoyable, lighthearted, non- offensive movie.
