    5Enjoyable "Honey" sequels
    By Randy E. Halford
    I really enjoyed these two "Honey" sequels, even more now than back then. "Honey, I Blew Up the Kid" takes the concept from the original film & turns it around. Flash forward: The Zsalinski family is now nestled in a nice home in Nevada surburbia, thanks to Wayne (Rick Moranis, just as charmingly inept as usual) working at a high-profile lab. With the daughter being sent away to college, the film focuses on now-teenager Nick & the family's brand new addition, blond moppet toddler Adam. Again trying to solve the lab's problems of a growth laser, Wayne brings the kids along...and naturally, little Adam gets accidentally zapped. What follows are some pretty hilarious situations in which the family copes with Adam's growth spurts (who could control a 7-foot baby?) as he systematically wreaks havoc on their home, then on the neighborhood when the secret's out. When Adam creates pandemonium in Vegas, it becomes sort of a satirical take on the old "Attack of the Fifty-Foot Woman" movie as the film brims with some great sight gags.
    "Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves" again flips over the other original concept of the kids getting shrunk; only this time, it's the adults who get zapped. Now, Wayne is president of his own lab company, and is living comfortably---only he feels ill-suited to his position. Eve Gordon has replaced Marcia Strassman as his wife, who is chomping at the bit to go on vacation, creating tension in the household. With the passage of time, the two oldest kids have moved on, and the focus is on early-teens Adam (Bug Hall from "The Little Rascals" movie). Instead of a "backyard adventure", there's a "house adventure" as Wayne, his wife, his brother (reliably comical Stuart Pankin) & his sister-in-law struggle to get from upstairs to downstairs with the aid of toy race car tracks, bubble machines, stair railings & so on. Meanwhile, the kids, under the impression that the grown-ups have left for the weekend, begin turning the house upside-down with messy, spurting "chili volcanoes" & noisy teen parties. What they don't know is that the parents are watching every move they make, while simulataneously having some dicey encounters with a cockroach, boys crashing the party, and a medical emergency with Wayne's nephew. Even the women befriend a somewhat cute daddy long legged spider (there's something absurdly funny about two tiny women engaged in small talk while being hoisted on a web line by a spider, as if it's all completely natural!). Eventually, through Wayne's genius, they re-wire a stereo speaker to amplify their voices & are restored to regular size. For a straight-to-video movie, it's done surprisingly well (although I missed the usual animated opening credits). Look for a young Allison Mack (who now co-stars on the hit TV series "Smallville") as the niece.
    Like the original movie, Disney didn't bother with DVD extras, which would've been nice to discover how they did these effects, and the cast & crew's comments on making the films. Still, they're pretty good follow-ups to the original.
