Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
"Terrible twos" takes on a whole new meaning in this ingenious sequel to Disney's surprise comic fantasy hit. Rick Moranis returns as endearing crackpot inventor Wayne Szalinksi, who accidentally zaps his infant son with a new ray that makes him grow to Godzilla-size proportions. Instead of Tokyo, though, this titanic tyke heads for the bright lights of the Las Vegas strip. A subplot about corporate skullduggery may go over kids' heads, but the scenes of the unwitting infant wreaking mayhem are every child's fantasy -- and every parent's nightmare.
All Movie Guide - Matthew Tobey
After failing miserably to duplicate the success and quality of Tim Burton's Pee Wee's Big Adventure with Big Top Pee-Wee, one has to wonder why director Randal Kleiser would get the keys to another popular franchise. Perhaps Kleiser isn't completely to blame, but Honey, I Blew Up the Kid is an altogether unworthy follow-up to 1989's Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, nonetheless. Stinking of greed on the part of all parties involved and featuring performances that are completely phoned in, the sequel is a dull rehash of the first film without any of the elements that made that one so exciting. Whereas Honey, I Shrunk the Kids created a fanciful world for its miniature characters to explore, the sequel simply has a giant baby threatening to unwittingly terrorize Las Vegas. The B-movie plot fits well, though, as the overall quality is on par with the schlockiest that cinema has to offer.
