Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves (film) Wayne Szalinski is back and this time his notorious shrink machine misfires again, and it is the adults who are shrunk. Believing their parents have left them home alone for the weekend, the kids take advantage of their newfound unsupervised freedom by filling up on junk food, Rollerblading in the house, playing loud music, and throwing a party for their friends. While desperately trying to get the kids to notice them, since they are only 3/4 of an inch tall, the adults are able to learn a few things about their kids. Direct-to-video release on March 18, 1997. Directed by Dean Cundey, making his directorial debut (his previous career has been as a famed cinematographer of such films as Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Hook, and Jurassic Park). Stars Rick Moranis (Wayne), Eve Gordon (Diane), Bug Hall (Adam), Robin Bartlett (Patty), Stuart Pankin (Gordon), Allison Mack (Jenny), Jake Richardson (Mitch). 76 min. Rated PG. The film was extremely complicated to produce, with almost 400 composite shots totaling approximately 40 minutes of screen time. Dream Quest Images, which produced the visual effects, had the advantage of new technologies that were not available when the first film in the series was made.
