Storyline

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 <jcobra3@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The movie was the beneficiary of a reverse boycott in the summer of 1992. Many police departments objected to Warner Brothers release of Ice-T's "Cop Killer" CD and asked their members to see "Honey I Blew Up The Kid" instead of WB's "Batman Returns" as a protest. See more »

Goofs

Given how much electricity is used in the Las Vegas strip, plus Adam grabbing the electronic ice cream, and giant guitar, he more than likely would have become much bigger than what we see as his biggest size. See more »

Adam: I fix it!
Diane: Don't fix it, Adam, just put down Mommy's coffee table.

they tried, but it just wasn't funny
6 April 1999 | by See all my reviews

This sequel was just not funny. The nutty professor screwed up again, but this time he made the baby into a 50 foot monster. I was not impressed.
