More Movie Taglines:
  • The most astonishing, innovative, backyard adventure of all time!
Movie Quote(s):
  • Nick Szalinski: I'm on a special diet. No toxic waste.
  • Russell 'Russ' Thompson, Sr.: When I was your age, I put on twenty pounds of pure unadulterated blitz-the-quarterback-and-rip-his-head-off muscle, Russell!
  • Amy Szalinski: I don't think we're in Kansas anymore, Toto. Nick Szalinski: I don't think we're in the food chain anymore, Dorothy.
  • Nick Szalinski: We're now a quarter of an inch tall, and sixty four feet from the house. That's an equivalent of three-point-two miles. That's a long way. Even for a man of science.
  • Nick Szalinski: When we crashed, my entire life flashed before my eyes. It didn't take too long.
Movie Trivia:
  • The film's original title was "Teenie Weenies", which was rejected on the grounds that it sounded too much like a kiddies' film with no appeal to adults.
  • The titles "Grounded" and "The Big Backyard" were considered and subsequently dropped during pre-production.
  • Chevy Chase and John Candy both turned down the role of Wayne Szalinski. Candy did however suggest Rick Moranis for the role.
  • The animated short Tummy Trouble (1989) was released theatrically with this movie.
  • Joe Johnston's directorial debut.
