Everything Actioncast: Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989)

This week on the Everything Actioncast, Zach and Chris shrink down to talk about the 1989 classic Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary.

Starring Rick Moranis in one of his most iconic roles, Wayne Szalinski, he’s an inventor trying to perfect his latest gadget, a shrink ray that will reduce the size of objects.  When his daughter Amy (Amy O’Neill) and Nick (Robert Oliveri) and the neighbors Little Russ (Thomas Wilson) and Ron Thompson (Jared Rushton) are accidentally shrunk and thrown out in the trash, the quartet of kids has to make their way through the massive backyard jungle to get back home.  The guys talk about the awesome sets and practical effects, question why Wayne couldn’t sell any of his other seemingly useful gadgets, the military applications of the shrink ray as a laser, the traumatic death of Antie, and more.

You can stream Honey, I Shrunk the Kids on Disney+.  Next week, it’s our monthly commentary, and Zach and Chris are joined by Joe and Phil from Digital Pimp Online to watch the theatrical bomb-turned-Netflix hit, Madame Web.
