The feature is followed on the disc by a five minute animated short called Off His Rockers which is delightful. This disc is a fun evening for the whole family.

WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
The humorous sequel to the Disney hit “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” (1989). Eccentric scientist Wayne Szalinski (Moranis) is always inadvertently involving his family in his experiments. This time he zaps his 2 1/2 year old son with a mysterious beam, causing the child to grow every time he’s exposed to an electrical field. Next stop: Vegas.

LaserDisc Picture:
The 1.75:1 picture looks great with accurate and consistently balanced color. Everything is sharp and crisp with no video artifacts visible.

LaserDisc Soundtrack:
The sound is excellent with subtle surround effects. The dialogue sounds natural and is always clear and intelligible.
