Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989)

The scientist father of a teenage girl and boy accidentally shrinks his and two other neighborhood teens to the size of insects. Now the teens must fight diminutive dangers as the father searches for them. (IMDb)

The movie’s main concept is wonderfully silly and results in novel and imaginative adventures for the shrunken kids that are fun to watch–and the low-budget special effects aren’t actually a detriment; the grass “jungle” sets have a really cool clay-mation look to them that comes across as charming and not cheesy. The kids’ acting and dialogue is hit or miss (although Moranis’ unaware geeky dad is pretty funny) and the story isn’t super complex, but it’s up to par for standard family film fare.

5.8/10
