Honey, I shrunk the kids.
"Honey, I Shrunk the Kids," as you may expect, is a silly excuse by kids to invoke things that otherwise wouldn't happen. It's in the same league as "My dog ate my homework." Or "Phineas and Ferb are building a roller coaster in our backyard."
Honey, I Shrunk the Kids is a funny science fiction film that was released in June 1989. What I mean by correctly is how he intended it to work, although it did not perform in the way he intended it to.
One time, the machine had gone rogue (for a reason we will talk about below) and shrunk random things, living and non-living alike. And those living things included some neighbor's kids and his own, and the film evolved into a quest of those adults to find the shrunk kids while the kids explored the garden.
We understand that the film is a fictional one that is intended to be funny. However, there are still instances in the plot that are unresolved because a character did not act correctly or the creators did not consider everything they would put in the set. Below, we will discuss three examples.
Honey, I shrunk the kids.
1.The lab of Wayne Szalinski had no safety precautions whatsoever.
What do you think of a laboratory? Perhaps you think of a fancy room with a few flasks in a sort of cabinet, some delicate chemicals inside sealed containers (so they wouldn't leak out), and people wearing safety gear like gloves and goggles.
When you think about Wayne's lab, you'll be fine. He's so accessible, that even a non-living object, like a baseball, can enter it. There wasn't even a security guard in place, either. Maybe it would have been better if, just for that room, there were glass panels of superior quality.
Wayne is lucky to have an inanimate object enters. It's possible that something worse might have entered, like a thief at night.
Okay, let's just say that there wasn't any baseball that flew inside. Now, his machine was still shooting beams at an apple. Needless to say, it was working.
The children were able to enter the lab! Please tell me they gave them the keys because of how horrible that would be. There is still a far worsening alternative. That would be that the children would simply be able to climb straight up there with no difficulty because the door was unlocked.
2.Attempting to slay a bee with a bat
In different languages, there are many expressions to express the idea of using something that would overthrow an otherwise small opponent. In English, we have "to kill a fly using a bazooka." In Korean, we have "Don't use your sword to kill a fly."
When the children were riding a bee, it came too close to Wayne's position in the yard. Now, any normal human would just swing their arms to ward off the insect. Even better, they would just open their front door and shut it.
Szalinski was a musician, but he was not. What he chose to do was to bee a swat with a bat, when there would be far better solutions to his bee dilemma. It gave a different meaning to the term, didn't it?

The use of crutches
I know that the kids were attempting to avoid stepping on the grass because they were now "the size of boogers." If they were on brick paths, they would be easily visible, so there was no need to look them there.
Wayne used to use crutches and walked in the grass with a magnifying glass instead, but what would it be like if they used their legs to find the kids? Nothing! They would still step on the shrunk children and crush them if they happened to be beneath them! They're not playing The Floor is Lava here. They're trying to avoid accidentally hitting tiny children!
