This cute Disney film surprisingly found a huge audience in 1989 and went on to become one of the year’s biggest hits before spawning two dreadful sequels.   plays an absent-minded scientist whose latest project, to invent a machine that can automatically shrink any object, isn’t going well. When an unnoticed mishap makes it possible for the machine to work, it accidentally miniaturizes his kids and submerges them into a giant world where breakfast cereal is a treacherous ocean and bumblebees make great airplanes. Silly, fluffy fun, with all the performers having a great time being in something so charismatically mindless. is especially delightful as Moranis’s exasperated wife.
