The scientist father of a teenage girl and boy accidentally shrinks his and two other neighborhood teens to the size of insects. Now the teens must fight diminutive dangers as the father searches for them.
Wayne Szalinski is a clumsy genius who comes up with new gadgets and experiments all the time, but something usually goes wrong and gets Wayne and his family into trouble, danger and fantastical adventure.
Barbara Alyn Woods,
When his parents have to go out of town, Dennis stays with Mr. and Mrs. Wilson. The little menace is driving Mr. Wilson crazy, but Dennis is just trying to be helpful. Even to the thief who's arrived in town.
Wayne Szalinski is at it again. But instead of shrinking things, he tries to make a machine that can make things grow. As in the first one, his machine isn't quite accurate. But when he brings Nick & his toddler son Adam to see his invention, the machine unexpectedly starts working. And when Adam comes right up to the machine, he gets zapped along with his stuffed bunny. Now, whenever Adam comes near anything electrical, the electricity causes him to grow. Adam soon starts to grow to the height of over 100 feet. And he is now walking through Las Vegas which he thinks is one big play land.Written by
Given how much electricity is used in the Las Vegas strip, plus Adam grabbing the electronic ice cream, and giant guitar, he more than likely would have become much bigger than what we see as his biggest size. See more »

For a sequel then "Honey, I Blew Up the Kid" isn't too bad, as in comparison to many other sequels. However, It just wasn't fully as fun and good as the first movie. They shouldn't have gone in the scaling-up direction, as it just didn't really work out. Don't get me wrong though, I am not saying that it is a bad movie.
This is, like the first movie, a fun and wholehearted movie for the entire family. Personally, I liked the shrinking in the first movie much more.
The story is, well, quite the opposite from the first movie. In "Honey, I Blew Up the Kid", the youngest Szalinski member, Adam, is exposed to the growth ray and turns into a towering giant baby.
If you enjoyed the first movie then you will also enjoy the sequel, because it is right in the same spirit and genre.
Rick Moranis, Marcia Strassman and Robert Oliveri returns from the first movie. But Amy O'Neill was nowhere to be seen. But the sequel has other familiar faces on the cast list; Lloyd Bridges, John Shea, Keri Russell and Ron Canada.
"Honey, I Blew Up the Kid" is a sequel that is fairly worthy of the first movie.
