    We all have his face in our memory, he has given us hours of happiness and his films remain in our memory, but what happened to rick moranis? The mythical actor of ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Honey, I Shrunk the Kids’ retired for a touching reason.

    Rick Moranis’ career began in 1980 on ‘Second City TV’, a series made up of sketches from which comedians such as Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Harold Ramis and John Candy also came out. Together with Dave Thomas, he directed and starred in ‘Strange Brew’ (1983), a film that exploited two of the show’s best-known characters.

    His comic vision began to attract attention among many colleagues, so Ramis decided to count on him for the great project in which he was involved, the magnificent ‘Los ghostbusters’ (Ivan Reitman, 1984).

    From that moment on, he was one of the recurring faces of eighties comedy, participating in titles such as ‘The Great Waste’ (Walter Hill, 1985), ‘Club Paraíso’ (Harold Ramis, 1986), the essential musical remake ‘Shop of Horrors’ (Frank Oz, 1986) (available on HBO Max), ‘The crazy story of galaxies’ (Mel Brooks, 1987), ‘Ghostbusters II’ (Ivan Reitman, 1989) or ‘Sweet home… sometimes!’ (Ron Howard, 1989), many of which are among the 50 best movies of the 80s according to IMDb.

    In 1989, he starred in the film that would transfer him forever to the collective imagination, the fun family comedy ‘Honey, I Shrunk the Children’ (Joe Johnston) (available on Disney +), which would be followed by two minor sequels, ‘Honey, I have enlarged the child’ (Randal Kleiser, 1992) and ‘Honey, we have shrunk ourselves’ (Dean Cundey, 1997).

    Then, His family situation had already taken a tragic turn when, in 1991, his wife died of breast cancer. With two small children, whom he protects to the point of never having revealed his name, the actor decided to choose projects that would be shot only in his city or, if he had to travel, that the production would take place during the Summer Vacation.
