What is the scifi family movie where aliens(?) have these gumballs that whomever chews it turns into an alien/monster/creature thing.
The government is trying to capture the aliens for study and a family is trying to help them escape.
I vividly remember a scene towards the end that the mom chews a gumball that turns her into a big kraken type of monster. It has to be from the 90s, maybe 80s.
