* ReedRichardsIsUseless: Genius creates the goo in a FreakLabAccident. Both Mike and the delinquents see the obvious value to such a thing, but when the latter steal the original batch, they simply use it on themselves[[labelnote:*]]There was actually almost half of it left after the gang took their slices, but it's never seen again.[[/labelnote]]. Genius spends the entire movie trying to replicate the formula, and still hasn't managed to by the end.

Added DiffLines:

* CoconutSuperpowers: The filmmakers' had very little ability to show the giant animals and people interacting with regular-sized people. As a result, the giant teens almost solely ''threaten'' people with their size. When their leader finally fights Mike (who's armed with a sling), he forgoes [[JustHitHim attacking him directly]] for the absurdly complicated and ineffective method of throwing fence posts like darts, just so the two don't have to be on the same screen.

* MagicPants: Averted for {{Fanservice}}.
** However, the curtains the giants end up wearing do eventually shrink.

* MagicPants: Averted ShapeshiftingExcludesClothing for {{Fanservice}}.
** However,
when the curtains teens become giants, but when they shrink again the giants end up wearing do eventually shrink.giant clothes they make shrink with them.



** And a duck's fanny, in case your tastes run in ''that'' direction.



* TheSchlubPubSeductionDeduction: Performed in an attempt to get the formula for the "Goo." It fails epically.
** For some reason, it works a lot better when one of the other delinquent girls talks to Genius.
* ShapeshiftingExcludesClothing: When the teens grow, their clothes are torn to shreds, leaving them naked. Also intended for cheap fanservice as the camera lingers on the ladies tops getting torn off.

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Whatever happened to the giant cat? Or for that matter, the giant spider corpse which should have still been in the basement.
** It's implied Genius took care of them.

happened to the giant cat? Or for that matter, cat and corpse of the giant spider corpse which should have still been in the basement.

spider. We're just left to assume Genius took care of them.

This 1965 Creator/BertIGordon picture has young "Genius" (Creator/RonHoward) tinkering with substances in his lab, creating a "goo" that causes whatever ingests it to grow to tremendous size. Unfortunately, some ne'er-do-wells blow in from out of town, and steal the goo and eat it, becoming the eponymous Giants. Now it's up to several teens as well as Genius to [[SetRightWhatOnceWasWrong set right what went wrong]].

* GiantEqualsInvincible: Seemingly subverted. The teens are sure they can conquer the town and maybe more, but don't assume they're immune to gunfire. Instead [[HostageSituation they take a hostage]] and demand the town disarm and cut off all outside communication, which the town [[IdiotBall immediately comply to]].
