Movie Review: ***Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves (1997)

This is the same idea as the original two movie, but with a twist.  It is the parents who are small, and having to find some way to get the attention of their children.  Wayne Szalinski (Rick Moranis) and his wife (Eva Gordon)  are going through a shaky time, so his wife and sister-in-law (Robin Bartlett) are headed for vacation.  Wayne has the order, get rid of the Tiki statue from the living room.  He does this with his shrinking ray, but the ray also gets he and his brother (Stuart Pankin).  The kids just think they are on vacation, and the fathers have headed to NASA to see a launch.  They don’t realize they are in the house, just small.  So the in-laws daughter decides to hold a party.  The party gets out of hand when a group of boys come over.  Things will get out of control.  In the end, they get the attention of the children by rewiring a stereo system.  Although there were some bumps, they realize they have all grown as a result of the adventure.
