  • Surprisingly good - A GREAT Family Movie
    I personally thought this was the best of the "Honey, I Shrunk..." movies. It was very clean, non-violent and a great message about the relationship between kids and their parents. A fun movie for kids and their parents to watch together!...more info
  • Third Time is not as much of a Charm
    Remember the funny movie "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids," and the almost as funny "Honey, I Blew Up the Kid?" Well, this movie is much like those. Except in this movie there is a different wife. Oh; and there are kids missing. And now Wayne Szalinski's (Rick Moranis) brother Gordon (Stuart Pankin) has appeared. Perhaps this movie is not so much like those after all.

    We quickly learn that a few things have changed for Wayne since last we visited him. The FDA has forbidden Wayne to use his shrinking machine on people. Wayne is in the process of sending his shrinking machine to the Smithsonian. Wayne and Gordon's wives are heading off to a vacation, leaving Wayne in Gordon in charge of the house.

    All initially seems sort of well, except that Wayne wants to shrink a Tiki man that his wife wants to him to throw away. Predictably, something goes wrong and Wayne and Gordon are accidentally shrunk. Shortly thereafter the wives, realizing they forgot to leave medicine behind, return. Soon the wives are accidentally shrunk, and we are once again on a path for a few yucks and a few groans.

    This movie is reasonably decent. Much of it seems somewhat of a retread. There are the usual moments of fear as the foursome run from a cockroach and help a daddy longlegs spider, more moments of fun in a ride on a toy car, a dip in the dip, a ride in a soap bubble, and more.

    This direct-to-video movie has less imagination than the first two movies. The atmosphere of this 75 minute "full-length" feature is that of a made-for-tv movie. I did enjoy the movie, but I wish I had looked for it in a bargain bin somewhere rather than paying full price.

    If you really liked the first two movies, you will likely enjoy this movie. If you cared little for the first two movies, you should avoid this one. Even if you think you might like it, the movie still feels like something made for the Disney channel. Good luck!

    This direct to video entry in the one-time imaginative series is mildly entertaining, although it is little more than an adult retread of the original. This time Rick Moranis (with a new wife played by Eve Gordon and only one kid this time) shrinks himself, his wife and his brother (Stuart Pankin) and his wife, and they find themselves confronting a giant cockroach as their main enemy, and a cute daddy longlegs helps the mommies out. It's not all that inventive but I found myself chuckling every once in a while. Might entertain the younger set....more info
  • 3rd (and final) in the series
    Contrary to popular belief, this is not a new movie. Not at all. This is actually Disney's very first direct-to-video live action films, which was first released in 1997. It did not go over well and has long since been the hardest to find of the trio. Unlike the other two theatrical films, this movie was only ever released in full frame... so us widescreen enthusiasts have nothing to complain about here. What I can complain about is the overall cheap-feeling that this film has. Rick Moranis is the only original character, and the action does not have the epic, theatrical quality of the original films. This feels like a 2-day shoot soundstage production with a very closed-in feeling. It's kind of like taking the first five minutes of "Toy Story," with the army men on the staircase, etc. and extending that claustrophobic feeling for the 65-minute running time. All in all, this most compares to a typical Disney Channel Original Movie. In fact, it's been shown as one ever since its release!! Not exactly a Disney highpoint, collectors will want this third film to complete the collection......more info
  • The best of the series
    I liked both of the previous movies in the shrunk series, and "Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves" is no exception. In this third movie of the series, the inventor of the shrinking machine, Wayne (Rick Moranis) accidentally shrinks himself along with his wife Diane (Eve Gordon) and two of his friends. Soon they're running from a roach, riding toy cars down what will seem to them like a real roller coaster since they're so small, and they're watching their mischievous kids do things that they were told not to do. All the while, they have to find a way to get their kids' attention and be revitalized to being their real size.

    "Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves" is great just like the previous two movies. Myself, I thought it was the best of the three. If you like "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" or "Honey, I Blew Up the Kid," I recommend getting "Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves." It has great special effects, it's an exciting adventure, and it's hilarious....more info

  • This movie is hilarious!
    My favorite comedy part was when the parents were all shrunk and Gordon called Wayne's wife Thumbelina. Also, it was funny when Wayne shrunk the Tiki Man, himself, his brother, and their wives, his wife notices the Tiki Man and says, "You thought you could outsmart me and shrink the Tiki Man so I wouldn't notice, well guess what.." and then she shouts at the top of her lungs, "I noticed!!!!!" That was funny. The cockroach and daddy longlegs were cool-looking, 'cept daddy longlegs' creep me out (heheh). I would recommend this movie to any Disney fan because it is really funny. I also liked the part when Wanye was admiring the "detail of this big roach turd". This movie made me laugh, and you will, too!...more info

  • Pathetic
    Talk about bad sequels. Rick Moranis stars in this awful third sequel to the once-funny-and-entertaining "Honey I Shrunk the Kids". The concept basically plays the same way as the first film, but with the adults instead of the kids being shrunk and the inner house instead of the garden as the universe to explore. If you think this sounds interesting, think again. The movie is boring at best, right down an embarrassment at worst.

    First of all, the continuity of the series has been completely flushed down the toilet. The only remaining actor of the first movie is apparently Rick Moranis. The actress playing his wife has changed, the actors playing the kids have changed, the ones playing the neighbors have changed... you name it. They try to make us believe this is the same family, but the results are puzzling to say the least.

    Second, the story is a rehash of the first one, with not one bit of originality. All the few jokes (and there's barely any) and the dangerous situations presented in the movie are just copied straight from "Honey I Shrunk the Kids".

    Third problem, the special effects. I'm sure this has been done on a smaller budget, but they are pathetic, way way worse than the ones appearing in the rest of the series. You're supposed to admire in awe these tiny figures exploring the huge domestic area, but you'll probably end up cringing most of the time.

    Fourth problem, to locate the action inside the house is just boring. Only few things happen, and when they happen, they are not thrilling at all. The first movie was amusing because the kids were dealing with nature, the grass, and the bugs that live in it. In this one, the adults (which come up as rather boring, compared to the kids) deal with dust, a cockroach and a cockroach trap. Disgusting.

    I don't know why the idea of releasing such a trite sequel to the already moribund series appealed Disney's executives, except maybe because they needed to cash in without spending five minutes thinking about something new. I'm warning you: leave this tasteless cash-in garbage where it should stay: getting dust on the shop's shelves....more info

  • A Discrace to all Disney movies
    "Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves" is stupid to all movies, including the scene where the Szalinski Brothers (Pankin/Moranis) were showing their stomachs. I give this 1 star....more info
  • The BEST of the SHRUNK SERIES!
    I was prepared to find this movie corny and maybe even a bit on the boring side. Boy, was I in for a surprise! This movie had me laughing all the way through! It was cute, it was entertaining, it was amusing, it had a great message at the end, and NO, it was not in the least bit BORING! My five year old daughter was even intrigued by it; unfortunately, it was on past her bed-time! I'm thinking of buying it, though, because it would make a fun addition to our movie collection! This is a great family movie for all ages. My opinion? Watch it, and I bet you'll end up laughing and being pleasantly surprised by it yourself!...more info
  • Surprisingly Good
    My five year old son watched this film at Christmas and I sat with him by the fire. Have you seen the back of the video? It looked like a re-hash of the first story but much worse - adventures like "getting stuck in a bubble" - "So good you won't even see it at the cinema!" I was expecting it to be so bad, but sat through it with my son, dreading having a rubbish afternoon.

    But all in all I was pleasantly surprised. My son laughed and had a good time - I didn't laugh much I have to say, but it's a kid's film. My son loved the first film (which we have had on video for years), didn't like the second one ("It didn't have any 'shrunking'," he said), and liked this one second best. After renting it that day, we're now planning to buy it. Worthwhile if you liked the first (in my view a bit weaker though) and if you thought the second was a disappointment....more info

  • They saved the best for last!
    I know that the first movie in this series is the classic, but if you ask me, the Real classic is this one. The storyline,the morals, the special affects, and the humor are all 100% better than the previous movies. Also, this movie is alot like "Home Alone" if you like "Home Alone", you will like this movie, too! It is very funny and also has a few loving morals. My favorite part is when the kids are doing all the things they were told not to do becuse they are home alone...(or think they are!!)
    Every movie series is differant, sometimes the original is the original and best, sometimes they do better the 2nd time round, and sometimes they save the best movie for last, as they did here. so see the "Grand Finallie" of the series, the best of the series, the REAL classic! ...more info
