WTFamily, 90s?

The turn-of-the-decade successes of Look Who's Talking, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990), and Home Alone inclined studios to throw money at many absurd and quirky Family-ish Comedy projects to see what stuck at the box office. Some of it was palatable, but plenty of it was wretched! A lot of it can be found on this list, with low-hanging fruit like sequels, remakes, and adaptations mostly (but not completely) omitted.
