A good movie

I remember it as if it was yesterday. Back then, when I was just a kid, not even 10 years old, I saw the trailer for this movie. I thought it looked awesome and I was really eager to check it out. Somehow, it took me 20 years (!) to finally watch this flick. I have seriously no idea why it took me so long but the kid that I used to be was really grateful towards the older myself to finally grant h... read more

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.

Amazing script, and Tom Hanks plays an incredible lead actor who still behaves like a teenage kid. Great characters!

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.

50 Moments of Cinematic Wonder (50 movies items)

"BIG - HEART AND SOUL Penny Marshall's beloved fantasy 'Big' is often lumped in with the barrage of body-swap films that were briefly popular in the 80s. Though 'Big' stands head and shoulders above any of them in quality, it also doesn't belong in that group because it isn't technically a body-swap comedy so much as a body-change comedy. The protagonist Josh Baskin doesn't change places with an adult, he merely becomes one after making a wish on an enchanted fairground machine that he could be "

“Let me just set the stage for my recent viewing of Big after not seeing it since it was on cable tv in the 90's. I'm on a red eye to California. Sipping on a Brooklyn Summer Ale. Looking for something to watch on the in-flight movie menu. Really despise watching blockbusters and the like on a tiny, 11" screen. Avengers. Nope. Star Wars. Nope. Big... Big? Hmm. Yeah why not? Did the nostalgia of 1988 and lanky Tom Hanks get the best of me? You bet it did.

Unlike the Old and Young switcheroo craze that was going on around this time (see Vice Versa, Like Father Like Son, 18 Again, etc.) this was an individual switcheroo, kind of like that segment in Twilight Zone the Movie where the group of octagenarians at the old folks home become kids again. Except this is the other way around a” read more
