Wayne Szalinski is at it again. But instead of shrinking things, he tries to make a machine that can make things grow. As in the first one, his machine isn't quite accurate.

19971 h 14 min
Overview

The joke's on absent-minded scientist Wayne Szalinski when his troublesome invention shrinks him, his brother and their wives so effectively that their children think they've completely disappeared. Of course, this gives the kids free rein to do anything they want, unaware that their parents are watching every move.

Honey, I shrunk the kids: the tv show

aired: 1997 – 2000

starring: peter scolari, barbara alyn woods, hillary tuck, thomas dekker

the retake

Shrunk

status: pre-production

directed by: joe johnston

written by: todd rosenberg

starring: josh gad, rick moranis

Originally rumored as a reboot is now known to be a sequel. With a focus on Nick Szalinksi (Wayne’s son), Shrunk features Josh Gad as a father of two precocious kids, one an inventor like her grandpa Wayne, the other obsessed with predicting his own death.
The plot is likely Nick’s kids become miniaturized, and you know, stuff happens while they’re small.
