Barbara Alyn Woods,
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
(at around 1h 8 mins) At the beginning of the film, when Wayne first goes into Adam's room, the meowing Kit-Cat Clock (from Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989)) can be seen in the upper-left corner of the screen. See more »
Wayne says that Adam needs to be still for 12 seconds in order to be shrunk. When Adam's stuffed animal in enlarged and he cuddles with it, he is still for longer than 12 seconds. They could have had him normal sized right then. See more »
Just who do you think you are talking to him like that?
Diane, let me handle this. Who do you think you are talking to me like that?

This is a really good sequel to "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids". What I enjoyed the most about "Honey, I Blew Up the Kids" was just how different the plot was compared to the original movie, and that was a good thing. In fact, this movie doesn't look like it has ties to the original at all, so ineffectively, you could watch either in any order, really, and it still won't make much of a difference. What I like about this sequel was just how funny it is compared to the first one. I liked how the baby just kept growing bigger and bigger in a short amount of time. It's also more touching and emotional compared to the first one, and it even had me cry a bit - that you actually felt sorry for the baby. I first watched this on television, and I remember just how funny and enjoyable it was. Probably, the most difficult thing about this movie was picking the correct title for it, and it's a really good title too because I don't know what else you could've came up with other than "Honey, I Blew Up the Kid".
