This is a must own. It's one of the classics of the 80's. Unforgettable scenes such as the giant light up floor piano. It's every kids dream and most adults as well. This bittersweet comedy will make you fall in love with Hanks, if you haven't already.

A 13-year-old boy makes a wish to a carnival fortune-telling machine that he grow up. He wakes up the following morning to find that his wish has been granted and his body has grown older overnight, but he is still the same 12-year-old kid on the inside. He's kicked out by his frightened mother, so he runs to New York city where he gets a job in a toy company. His youthful spirit gets him promotions and the love of a nice woman, but eventually he wants to return to being a boy.

"Re-watch - Dec. 31st I last watched Big 4 years ago, and my thoughts on it haven't changed.

While it's not a New Year's movie, I thought it was a good choice to end the year with...there are wishes, fantasy, and a fancy party with a limo ride, not to mention heartfelt joy."
