Honey I Blew Up the Kid
PG | 89 min | Friday, July 17, 1992
The sequel to 1989's box-office hit, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids is the 1992 Walt Disney Pictures comedy, Honey, I Blew Up the Kid. Rick Moranis and Marcia Strassman reprise their roles from the original.
In a reversal of the original premise, this time Moranis manages to enlarge the kid in Absent-Minded Professor-style. The newly-massive child, Adam, quickly grows to seven feet tall, necessitating radical changes to the household. Before much longer, Adam reaches 12-foot tall proportions, and inadvertently turns the Las Vegas backdrop into chaos.
Moranis once again does an admirable job in "channelling" Fred MacMurray, while Strassman capably plays the predictable, supportive mother. John Shea portrays Moranis' boss, who attempts to corner his employee's latest high-tech gizmo, while screen veteran Lloyd Bridges is effective in a cameo.
Retaining much of the original's charm, Honey, I Blew Up the Kid manages to entertain although semi-savvy viewers will see the inevitable conclusion a mile away.
