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
Adam Szalinski is played by twin brothers Joshua Shalikar and Daniel Shalikar. Most films and TV shows that involve small children typically cast older children (typically ages 3 and 4) that look younger than they really are, however the Shalikars were 2 years old during the film's production, the same age as the character they were playing was supposed to be, due to the fact that they were fairly easy to work with and took direction well. Dan was noted as being the more adventurous of the two, while Josh was more cautious. See more »
Wayne reveals that things and people must be still for twelve seconds in order for them to shrink. But in the other two installments, the people that shrunk were not still at all. See more »

That sequels almost never work? When will I learn not to bother to see sequels? At any rate, this is a typical sequel and, like most sequels, it stinks next to the original. The first film was pretty decent, but not great and this one is a very large step down. Few sequels have even come close to the original film and this isn't one of them. I liked the first film (but didn't love it). I didn't think much of this one. You probably won't either.
