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.

I can't honestly say I actually disliked this, but 'Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves' is very average. This second sequel of the 'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids' series sees, as you can guess from the title, the adults being the shrinkees (definitely not a word, but I'm gonna go with it) this time. In short, it's boring. It's very much a weak version of the 1989 original. I'm not saying I found the preceding two hilarious, but they do give a few chucklesome moments - this doesn't have any. Rick Moranis (Wayne) and Stuart Pankin (Gordon) are decent, while Eve Gordon is arguably a better Diane than Marcia Strassman; a meaningless debate mind you, as neither are all that great due to the way the film is. The kid actors are OK, with a (very) young Mila Kunis appearing in a minor role. The film ends, surprisingly, with a couple of positive messages. It also manages to make daddy long legs cute which is quite the accomplishment. Even so, it's a rather slow 74 minute watch. Meh, overall.
