The Movie Fanatics Commentary Podcast 09 | Honey, I Shrunk the Kids

After watching one of my all-time favorite films last week, Ben picked a movie from his younger days, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. We can’t exactly call the experience nostalgic, but there was plenty to talk about.  Listen in as we talk about odd inventions, giant ants, and the career of Rick Moranis as briefly as possible. Largely because this movie is ridiculous, but in an endearing, very intentional way. Along the way, we discover a few things about science. Or maybe we make up our own; it’s debatable, I think.

Less debatable is the fun use of special effects in this film. The world is a much different place 1/4 of an inch above the ground. Sprinklers become hurricanes, LEGOs become impromptu fortresses, and Cheerios are much deadlier. It’s Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, a fun film that, ultimately, only amounts to little more than that.
