Barbara Alyn Woods,
When his parents have to go out of town, Dennis stays with Mr. and Mrs. Wilson. The little menace is driving Mr. Wilson crazy, but Dennis is just trying to be helpful. Even to the thief who's arrived in town.
Wayne Szalinzki, a wacky, absent-minded inventor, is back again but only this time he decides to use his infamous shrink machine just one more time. His wife Diane asks him to get rid of the "Tiki Man" a large tiki sculpture. Wayne refuses to get rid of it so he decides to restart the shrink ray and reduces the Tiki Man to pocket-size. However, after Wayne shrinks the Tiki Man the machine is accidentally activated and Wayne ends up shrinking himself and his brother Gordon. Meanwhile, when Gordon's wife Patty and Diane were going on a vacation they went back to the house when Patty suddenly realizes she forgot Mitch's medicine for his potassium deficiency. When they were about to leave, they decide to sneak into the attic and surprise the men, but the shrink ray is activated once again, and the ladies are shrunk as well. So the team must be very brave of disgusting household insects the size of dinosaurs and more in their biggest adventure to get their children's attention.Written by

The film was originally scheduled for a theatrical release during the 1996 holiday season. However, because Disney was having success with animated direct to video films, the studio chose this film as the first live action direct to video movie. See more »

I'm so excited, Patty. I've been looking at the La Costa brochure every day for two months.

This is terrible. 110%. Everything from the horrific computer aided special effects, that were used on stupid,poinless things.. ( I.E. the station wagon driving down the street ) to the terrible acting by uneducated child performers ( I.E. the scene where " Jenny " drops a minute amount of Onion Dip on the table and she is told she is making a mess, to which she replies " I can't help it this stuff is good, what's in it?" [ it's onion dip what do you think is in it idiot ])and the cliches everwhere you look ( I.E. parents assumed gone, party with girlfriends gets out of control by jerky pre-adolescent uninvited boys trashing the house ). If you have this video, you should use it as kindling in your fireplace. Rick Moranis never was the best actor, but even HE could do something better than this monstrosity. Yuck...a -10 out of 10.
