The 1989 Comedy, Science Fiction Film “Honey I Shrunk the Kids” starred Rick Moranis as Wayne Szalinski, a mad inventor, Marcia Strassman as his long-suffering wife Diane and his two children Amy (Amy O’Neill) and Nick (Robert Oliveri) who he unfortunately shrinks using a Ray Gun that he created. If only Wayne had used a specially formulated potion controlled and mixed by Industrial Valves supplied by a company like https://www.orseal.com/ he might have succeeded in his experiment. The crazy Inventor had been trying without success to shrink any object he could meanwhile his marriage to Diane was falling apart because she was fed up of having to work so many hours to earn enough money to keep the family home.
