"Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" was a childhood favorite. Between this and "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", I'd gotten serious mileage out of the family VCR; which is why saying it still holds up is a genuine compliment (and this is a Disney movie; I tend to steer clear of those). But there's a lot about this that really works. It's a grandiose adventure (had to be fun designing those giant sets), the cast is great and it's got that well-engineered family movie feel to it. It's classic Disney, to me.
Trivia has it that the Wayne Szalinski part was written for Chevy Chase, but he would've been best suited to the physical comedy rather than the absent-minded professor end of it. Rick Moranis proves an inspired choice for this; he nails both facets.
