IT was a Disney family favourite back in 1989, but 'Honey, I Shrunk the Kids' is still perfectly watchable today.
In the film, Wayne Szalinski is a mad-as-a-hatter scientist who has invented a miniaturising machine that is so powerful it blows things up.
But when it does begin to work, he ends up shrinking the kids from next door and his own two children.
The youngsters then have an adventure in trying to get back home when Wayne accidentally throws them in the bin.
The film is another one of Disney's triumphs that, years after its release, continues to appeal to all ages and walks of life.
Rick Moranis was perfectly cast as Wayne Szalinski (John Candy was also considered for the role).
The film also features Matt Frewer and Kristine Sutherland as Russ Thompson Sr. and Mae Thompson, the Szalinskis's next door neighbours.
In 1992 there was the first sequel - Honey, I Blew Up the Kid - but the original film still stands head and shoulders above the rest.
It's perfect Disney family viewing.
