This boxset features all 3 films in the Disney 'Honey, I' franchise. It is well worth buying if you remember watching it as a child, or indeed if you have a family with young children. Yes, you can tell instantly by the opening credits that the film is dated, but younger children aren't likely to notice and you soon forget as you get into it! Get it for the first 2 films alone. Recommeded.

'Honey I shrunk The Kids' is a 1989 comedy which sees Rick Moranis star as the 'nutty' professor Wayne Szalinski who invents an electro-magnetic shrink ray that accidently shrinks his 2 kids and the neighbours kids to 1/4 of an inch! Not realising, he sweeps them up and puts them in a bin in the back garden! The story follows the kids' journey back into the house as they face giant bees, ants and the threat of a lawnmower! This, the original film in the series is by far the best in my opinion.

'Honey, I Blew Up The Kid' is the 1992 sequel to 'Honey, I Shrunk The Kids' and features Rick Moranis again as Wayne Szalinski. SInce the last incident, the Szalinskis have welcomed a new addition to the family, 2.5 year old Adam. Wayne takes Adam to work while he is demonstrating a new machine. Just as he presses the button, Adam walks into the beam. The story then follows Adam as he grows and grows and grows!

'Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves' was a 1997 direct to video sequel to 'Honey, I Blew Up The Kid' and again featured Rick Moranis, although his wife Diane is now played by a different actress. The story tells of how Wayne, his wife, brother and sister-in-law are accidentally shrunk with his electro-magnetic shrink ray. This time it is up to son Adam and his cousins to un-shrink their parents.

Having watched the first 2 films when I was younger I have purchased this set for my boys. They loved the films and it was well worth the money. Three entertaining films for less than seven pounds.

Thoroughly enjoyed this when watched years ago with family - still fun now.

Highly fun interaction between charactors, children/teenagers who have really good ideas and tease/fight/love, as people do in real life, so not corny or silly, just good family fun.

I laughed a lot at some bits, still do at the thought of them, very good.

Blew up the kid gets bit daft and silly but Honey, I Shrunk The Kids and Honey, we Shrunk ourselves are very good.

Ah I'm a big fan on Walt disney films. I have been collecting them for nearly 3 years since my sons been born. I didn't think he would actually sit and watch them film as its more grown up but he loves it. He watched honey I blew up the kid and he wanted to watch it again. Amazon great price. £14 cheap than Disney shop. Oh and u get bonus disney movies points.

The first part reminds me a lot of my childhood. I used to love that movie, and I still enjoy watching it till now. The second part is cool too, but the first one is better. Well, the third is ok I guess. However, when you put them all in one box, with this great price, it is really worth it. If you didn't watch the first part, you defiantly need to!

Really liked these films - good old fashioned fun. Kids loved the first two films though little low tech! Third film was less interesting as Diane the mum was a different actress and wasn't as nice or believable as the original. It was also a bit of a limp addition to the series. Would recommend this box set though. Good family viewing.
