Suddenly the world grows a whole lot smaller.....,
This review is from: Honey, I Blew Up the Kid (DVD)
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).
