Good movie
1 July 2016 | by cybersmartieSee all my reviews

Wiplala is a good movie!, Known as "Help I've Shrunk the Family!" or "Help I Shrunk the Family!", Like Honey, I Shrunk the Kids!, this is an amazing classic for kids & adults but they feature bad language, If you are a parent, be sure to click at different scenes!, Love love love it, I rate it 10 stars by the way, :-), Did you remember that these Chinese people speak English in this movie?, Well done!, Expect I love it. Great cast & crew, Very superb and the poster is well-looking. I almost like it!, For adults who do not know it, let them google "Wiplala" and show it to your child, Only recently goodly good films are a superb production.
