I seem to like this sequel more than Honey, I Shrunk The Kids mainly because this is one of the movies that I grew up watching it. It's true that Honey, I Blew Up The Kid doesn't really hold up eighteen years later, but there are still some pretty good things about it. The story is just as weak as the one in the original, but at least the special effects are pretty fun to watch. There are some fun and silly scenes, as well as a pretty wacky music score by Bruce Broughton. The things I disliked the most about this movie were the lame one-liners said by Keri Russell, the cardboard cutout villain played by John Shea, and, as I mentioned before, the story which isn't really much to start with. In the end, I consider Honey, I Blew Up The Kid a bit of a guilty pleasure. The film beings a lot of nostalgia: I liked it back when I was a kid, and I still like it now (at least SOME of it).

Grade: 6/10

Honey, I Blew Up the Kid(1992) is the sequel to Honey, I Shrunk the Kids(1989). This sequel does something different by turning Wayne Szalinski's toddler son into a giant. Even Michael J. Nelson from Mystery Science Theater 3000 pointed out that the film is an homage to Bert I. Gordon's The Amazing Colossal Man(1957). There are a few deja vu moments in the film. Wayne Szalinski yells, "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids!" after accidentally shrinking Nick(Robert Oliveri) and the babysitter with the Shrinking Ray. The mailman delivers mail to a box with "Szalinski" written on it. Bruce Broughton(Silverado, Lost in Space) composed the energetic music score for the film. The filmmakers went on location to Nevada to make the film. Randal Kleiser(Grease) directs the film. For a Hollywood movie made in the 1990's, it uses models, giant props, blue screen photography and little or no CGI. The stunt driving is quite good. Amy O'Neill from Honey, I Shrunk the Kids makes a brief cameo during the first ten minutes of the film. A young Keri Russell plays Mandy, the cute, nubile babysitter that Nick has a crush on. Marcia Strassman returns as Wayne's wife. Twins were used to portray Adam Szalinski. One twin improvised his acting while the other followed the director's orders. Julia Sweeney from Saturday Night Live plays a neighbor. John Shea plays the film's villain and Lloyd Bridges plays a kind, empathic rich guy. In Honey, I Blew Up the Kid(1992), Adam Szalinski is accidentally exposed to Wayne's industrial-sized ray gun. He grows in size whenever he gets too close to electromagnetic waves. Adam causes (non-violent) Godzilla-like destruction to Las Vegas. Adam plays with real cars as if they were toy cars and he plays with Hard Rock Cafe's giant guitar! In 1993, Walt Disney Pictures was sued for stealing someone else's idea for this film. Some movie critics in 1992 didn't enjoy this film. Honey, I Blew Up the Kid(1992) is an underrated sequel.

The only sequel better than the original. Rick Moranis stars as an eccentric inventor. He accidentally zaps Adam, his two-year-old, with a machine designed to enlarge things. Adam grows to over 100 feet tall. We are reminded of The Attack of the 50 Foot Woman, although Adam is a little kid and means no harm. He is cute in his red overalls. He terrorizes Las Vegas. He reminded me of my own kid, especially when he went for the Hard Rock Cafe guitar. The terrible twos take on a new meaning. Keri Russell is the baby sitter whom Adam's brother ties up. She grew up and went on to star in the delightful Waitress.

Honey, I Blew Up The Kid (1992) was a sequel to the the 1989 hit "Honey, I Shrunk The Kids". As always with most sequels, they are never as great as the original film. However, there are still some funny moments in this one, and I think its still an OK film to watch for family viewing. Rick Moranis and Marcia Strassman return as Wayne and Diane Szalinski, reprising their characters from the first movie. Seeing their 2 and a half year old son get up to 112 feet (after being zapped by one of Wayne's inventions), the Szalinskis try to get things resolved fast, but of course, problems ensue during the course of the film. Veteran actor Lloyd Bridges also co-stars in this movie, along with a young Keri Russell, who would later be known as Felicity Porter on the TV series, Felicity (1998-2002).

Usualy sequals to movies like this can really lack and leave a lot desired but this follow up to the hit "Honey I shrunk the Kids" is actualy a lot of fun and a nice change on the size changing themes that were developed in the first.
This movie realized that we probably saw enough of the shrinking and being lost in the backyard idea and decided to do the opposite. A few new characters were introduced in this movie to make things work. The most important being Wanyes new son Adam who is a 2 year old toddler and will be the focus of this latest instalment with the wacky inventor and his family. Wayne now is part of a big company who wants to use his size alteration invention for their own uses. The only problem is he can't get the growth part to work correctly. On a surprise visit to the lab with his two sons to do some extra work, 2 year old Adam accidently gets caught under the rays of the growth ray only to wind up growing very slowly over a long period of time. Before they can blink he has grown to over 100 feet tall and terrorizing
downtown Las Vegas. To make matters worse an evil partner in the company is trying to take control of things and wants the kid destroyed.
Its a fun story that really has a lot of creative moments like His other son and the babysitter getting captured by the giant and stuck in his shirt pocked for most of the movie. They make it look really realistic with the giant baby towering over some famous Las Vegas casinos and the crowd reacting pretty realisticly. Kinda like one of those silly Godzilla movies but still with a Disney charm to it. It has a great story and a good climax and everything seems to end up happily ever after.
