A silly, charming film--Tom Hanks does an amazing job portraying a teenage boy in an adult man's body. This film has a great message about the value of childhood. I also loved the nostalgia factor.

Another great pick for family movie night. Basically you can't go wrong with Tom Hanks.

I want to like this movie, but the whole romance is so disturbing when you think about the fact that she's a grown woman and he's a 13-year-old boy.

Such a wonderful movie and Tom Hanks was so deserving of an Oscar for this one! He does an incredible job as Josh, the 13 year old who finds that his wish at a carnival has come true. He lands a "dream job" fit for any kid in an adult's body, and unexpectedly finds love along the way. Hilarious and fun, Big is one of Tom Hanks' best!

The idea of trading places with another person or an older/younger self to show a different perspective is archetypal by now. This is one of Hanks' earlier films and he does a very good job of portraying a kid suddenly thrust into adulthood, but it's not that easy to get a job. It's interesting to look back now at toy technology that was cutting edge at the time though.

Susan: I'm not so sure we should do this.

Josh: Do what?

Susan: Well, I like you, and I want to spend the night with you.

Josh: Do you mean sleep over?

Susan: Well, yeah.

Josh: OK... but I get to be on top.
