Honey, I Blew Up the Kid Reviews
This time around he accidentally turns his two year-old son Adam into a giant, and not just that, but Adam gets larger every time he comes into contact with electricity.
This is really not all that different from the first, but I liked how instead of doing the exact same thing, they flipped it in the other direction. It's also cool that the main cast playing the Szalinski's return, though it sucks that Amy O'Neil is only in it for about 2 minutes. As the latest addition to the Szalinski clan, Joshua and Daniel Shalikar are fun as Adam, and the filmmakers do a good job working with such a young performer. Other newcomers include Keri Russell as a love interest for Nick, and John Shea as a slimy rival scientist who takes over Wayne's project.
This is a fun, but sometimes silly and corny movie. It's not as good as the first, but I still like it. The practical effects are well done, but the computer generated ones are kinda dated and poor. But the film is pretty creative with how they portray the scenario, even if none of it feels all that fresh.
It's a pretty breezy film, and, while that's not a terrible thing, I think this could have actually been a tad longer and really tried to develop characters and subplots a bit more. That's just me though.
All in all, I'm probably giving this a bit much credit, but I don't care. I think it's funny, it's an innocent family film, and, while nostalgia plays a big role for me, I still think this is an enjoyable film worth checking out.
