It's Almost Been 30 Years Since They Shrunk, But What Do The Kids Look Like Now?

- Page 1

Honey, I Shrunk The Kids is one of those classic movies that just completely swept us away into a crazy world that somehow became believable. Suddenly we all dreamed about eating that giant cookie and assumed our neighbors had shrink rays in their attics.

The fact that this ridiculous concept worked so well is probably due to the acting. Sure, we all know that Rick Moranis is a super star and we wish he would come back to acting, but the kids held their own and helped make the movie what it was.

Ever wonder what happened to the kids post-shrinking? Now that they are all back to normal size, let's see what happened to them!

Amy O'Neill - Amy Szalinski

Amy O'Neil had been in quite a bit before getting involved in Honey, I Shrunk The Kids and has continued acting. She appeared in the sequel Honey, I Blew Up The Kid, before a long gap in her acting career. She was off between 1994-2008 but came back for one short movie before going back into retirement.  

She has actually become a performer for a Los Angeles based performance art community and does circus-style acts.

Robert Oliveri - Nick Szalinski

He appeared in Edward Scissorhands as well as the sequel Honey I Blew Up The Kid but after that he decided acting just wasn't for him.

He went to school in Georgia then moved to Florida with his wife and two kids. He stays out of the spotlight completely, no one has seen him in years!

But what about the kids from next door?

From the very beginning of the shoot, to the movie's premiere, it seems like the film's

While I was partial to Belle, I felt a deep investment to all of the characters, who made me believe in happily-ever-afters. Growing up, I had watched each movie at least a dozen times, but I never realized something was missing, particularly, a body part.This isn't the only time the princesses have shared key attributes, as it was previously uncovered why they are predominately seen dressed in blue.DisneyIt's also interesting to note that most of their mothers have either passed away or

9 Times 80s Movies Taught Us Important Life Lessons

The 80s were the best decade for movies ever, and we all knew that. But 80s movies did more than just provide entertainment. I could just be speaking for myself, but I learned some of the greatest life lessons from my favorite 80s movies.1. Life is too short to not have fun.
