Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves is a 1997 American science-fiction comedy film that follows the story of the previous films, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids and Honey, I Blew Up the Kid. It is directed by Dean Cundey and starred by Rick Moranis, Eve Gordon, and Bug Hall. The movie was released straight to video. The plot of the film revolves around Wayne Szalinski (Rick Moranis), who had previously shrunk his children Nick and Amy, and blew up his toddler son, Adam. In this installment, his wife, Diane (Eve Gordon), is out of town, and Wayne invites his brother, Gordon (Stuart Pankin), and his wife, Patty (Robin Bartlett), over to their home. Wayne is still up to his experiments and creates a shrink ray that could potentially revolutionize the world of technology. However, before he could perfect the invention, he accidentally shrinks himself, Gordon, and Patty. Their children, Jenny (Allison Mack) and Mitch (Bug Hall), return home and unknowingly sweep them up into the trash where they are taken to the dumping site.

The group is determined to figure out how to return to their normal size, and they also need to ensure that the kids do not unknowingly destroy them. They run into several major obstacles and hilarious situations throughout the journey. One of the most notable scenes is when Wayne and his brother engage in a chase with Roachzilla, who has grown to an enormous size due to Wayne's previous experiments. They also encounter a spider that seemingly wants to attack them, leading to some funny moments of trying to escape.

As they try to find their way back to the house, they encounter other insects, infections, and rats that seem gigantic against their reduced size. The movie has several comical references to the previous films, including the children playing with toys that resemble the earlier calamities of the Szalinski family.

The movie has a strong theme of family and togetherness, as the family must band together to survive their predicament. It reinforces the importance of accepting the consequences of one's actions and problem-solving. The movie is well-written, and the actors deliver the necessary comedic moments perfectly. There is never a dull moment, and the jokes are well-timed, with a mix of slapstick and witty comments that keep the audience engaged.
