Comments pending.
CUTE FAMILY FILM. I ADMIRE IT'S IMAGINATION AND CREATIVITY, BUT IT SINKS TOO MUCH INTO YOUR BASIC FAMILY FILM PLOT. THE SPECIAL EFFECTS AREN'T BAD AT ALL, SOME QUITE GOOD IN FACT. GOOD NATURED FUN

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989)

I love this movie. I know it's a family/Disney movie but I loved this as a kid and I still really enjoy it. Just one of those few family movies that is still good even as you get older.
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989): 6/10

: Hard to swallow but still entertaining fun for kids; the effects are dated but watchable, the performances range from bland to funny, and, though it's utterly predictable and in places rather soppy (e.g. the elder kids' romance), it's still an okay family film... even if it's not particularly intelligent or original.

Full review to come.
'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids' plays like a typical Disney film with children as the heroes and a wacky inventor. In this film, the children accidently become as tiny as ants from the inventor's machine, and they travel their way through their front yard in attempt to get the inventor to see them to make them a normal size again. Along the way, they meet up with giant insects and learn how to stick together to help each other out of the situation. The scale of the sets were amazing. (They meet a large ant, fly on the backs of bees, eat from a giant cookie, and see giant Lego toys lost in their front yard.) It's an innocent film made just for children, and it does capture the essence of the typical Disney film. I'm not sure how it's dated, but I did enjoy it when I was younger, and my brothers liked it too. (We would have been between eight and ten, and I probably last saw the film when I was thirteen.)

Honey, I Shrunk the Kids
I have always liked this movie and with age it's still enjoyable. Goofy, yes, but still entertaining. Most of the most enjoyable flims come from the 80's in my opinion, Goonies, Labyrinth, Legend... I could go on and on, this one is another good one to add to the list.
