Honey, I Shrunk the Kids
Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 4.0 4.0

This really funny movie is about an inventor named Wayne Szalinski (Rick Moranis) who is an inventor who creates a machine that can shrink objects to 1% of their size. The only problem is that it keeps blowing up the objects instead of shrinking them so Wayne thinks it's a failure. Much to his surprise, the machine accidentally shrinks his kids, Amy and Nick and the two neighbor boys Ron and Russ. Wayne, who of course doesn't know, sweeps the kids in the garbage bag and places them outside in a garbage can. The adventure begins for the very tiny little kids to try and get back to their house and get their dad's attention. This 1989 is a great family movie that all will enjoy.
