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>

Goofs

(at around 29 mins) Wayne tells Nick about the reason why he made them all promise to never tell anyone that him and his sister (which would have included the neighbors children) were once shrunk and lost to them (which happened in the original.) When Wayne brings that up to Nick, he claims that they were "shrunk and lost for two days", when in fact, that only happened for one day. The kids spent a good part of the day they were shrunk getting back to the Szalinski house, and a small part of the next morning continuing the journey, having to stop to sleep overnight. This is similar to stopping overnight at a hotel, and as it was sunlit on two separate occasions with an intervening night, this would generally be regarded as two days. See more »

King Baby!
9 April 2004 | by DarthBillSee all my reviews

That affable, amiable, absent minded professor family man Wayne (Rick Moranis) is back, but now his experiments in size are funded by a big time company and he's a hot property. Unfortunately, his new toddler son, Adam, is the one who gets zapped this time, but instead of shrinking, he's turned into a toddler of Godzilla proportions. If you thought Wayne's wife was unhappy with Wayne shrinking their older son Nick and daughter Amy (who only cameos here) in the first film, just wait till you see her lose it here when she finds out her little boy Adam here! Now it's a race against time for Wayne to shrink Adam back down to size before he's destroyed by an uncaring society, with help from his now teenage son Nick and his girlfriend, Kerri Russell before she hit it big with "Felicity".

May strain the cuteness for some, will warm the hearts of others. Followed by a direct to video sequel that's not even worth the price of rental.
