Editorial Reviews

Early on one of the characters realizes, "We're now a quarter of an inch tall and 64 feet from the house. That's an equivalent of 3.2 miles."

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
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 Great fun movie. February 20, 2003

Format:VHS Tape
This is what an entertaining, funny, clean, family movie should be. Great special effect as well, without none of the CGI nonsense we see today. Awesome.

Despite this DVD saying that it is Universal it will not play in my DVD or my Bluray Players. It's actually PAL. Be careful before ordering

1.0 out of 5 stars My mistake January 10, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
apparently, I did not read the product description well enough although, I have bought hundreds maybe thousands of DVDs from Amazon. What I received was an out of area DVD that will not play on US machines. My fault, we should all read the instructions better. Lou
