Editorial Reviews

Get set for the adventure of a lifetime in the #1 comedy hit of the year, HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS! Rick Moranis stars as a preoccupied inventor who just can't seem to get his electro-magnetic shrinking machine to work. Then, when he accidentally shrinks his kids down to one-quarter-inch tall and tosses them out in the trash, the real adventure begins! Now the kids face incredible dangers as they try to make their way home through the jungle of their own backyard! Hurricane sprinklers! Dive-bombing bees! A runaway lawn mower and much, much more! Directed by Academy Award(R)-winner Joe Johnston (Visual Effects, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, 1981), this record-breaking smash is full of amazing special effects, hilarious comedy, wild chases, and nonstop surprises!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, Great, Great! August 16, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
The story is about an inventor Wayne Szalinski (Rick Moranis) who is trying to perfect his machine which, when working, will shrink matter. The problem is, nothing he does seems to make it work. But somehow, his kids Amy and Nicky (Amy O'Neill and Robert Oliveri), and his next door neighbor's kids, Russell and Ron Thompson (Thomas Wilson Brown and Jared Rushton) are shrunk! Being only a few inches tall, they end up in the garbage bag and are taken outside. They get out but the only way back to the house is through the Szalinski's front yard. They meet up with a friendly ant, a killer scorpion, the danger of being chopped up by a lawnmower, and being drowned by a water sprinkler. Will they make it home so they can be made back to their normal size?
This movie is just GREAT! Even though it's a kids movie, it's great for adults, too. I love to watch this movie with my parents. I especially love Robert Oliveri and Jared Rushton. They did a very good job acting in it. Anybody who wants to enjoy a good movie with the family, watch "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids." You won't regret it!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favorite movies July 6, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Wayne Szalinski is convinced he has figured out a way to shrink the size of matter. It works great on paper, but he can't make it work in real life. While he's at a conference presenting his ideas, the machine accidentally shrinks his and his neighbor's kids. When they get thrown out with the trash, they must journey across the backyard, avoiding bugs, sprinklers, and lawnmowers. Meanwhile, Wayne and his wife try to fix the machine and find the kids. Will they find them before it's too late? Can Wayne figure out how to make the machine work to reverse the process?
This is one of my favorite movies. It combines a great story and great characters with great special effects. All the characters grow because of their experiences, even both sets of parents. The special effects still hold up today, and are there to tell the story, not the other way around. The story moves effortlessly from comedy to drama and back again.
It's a shame that there aren't more movies like this. Gather the entire family together and enjoy a great family film.

1.0 out of 5 stars COLLECTORS BEWARE October 16, 2002
Format:DVD
This DVD presents the film in full frame, not widescreen. Why Disney did not include a widescreen transfer on the other side of the disc or as a separate release is beyond my reasoning capabilities. I had to return mine unopened once I realized this. Same for HONEY, I BLEW UP THE KID.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Movie kept cutting out and "loading" January 11, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
The movie is a great movie as I saw it when it first came out, but playing it for my kids through Amazon was horrible. I started and restarted more than I got to watch it. I tried other shows and movies after getting so frustrated with this download and they were all fine, so it was not my connection speed!

5.0 out of 5 stars A true Disney classic. August 11, 2001
By Rebecca
Format:VHS Tape
HONEY, I SHRUNK THE KIDS is one of the better Disney, live-action films out there. It's original and unique - followed by two [HONEY, I BLEW UP THE KID and HONEY, WE SHRUNK OURSELVES] just as good sequels. This film is about a wacky scientist named Wayne Szalinski (Rick Moranis) who knows all about science and nothing about family or the "real world". When Wayne creates a shrinking machine, in hopes that it will shrink matter, it actually ends up shrinking his kids, Amy and Nicky (Amy O'Neill and Robert Oliveri), and his next door neighbor's kids, Russell and Ron Thompson (Thomas Wilson Brown and Jared Rushton). They escape from the trash bag and end up entering what appears to be a jungle but is actually the Szalinskis' own backyard! Now, just a few inches tall, the kids must find a way to get to the house and get their parents' attention so they can deshrink them and turn them back to their normal sizes.
This is a very funny comedy, and there are some excellent visual effects, too. Everything from the shrunk kids to riding on a flying bee - there is some truly amazing special effects. The plot is solid and so is the acting. This is one Disney comedy I recommend for every family!
