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.

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.

Charming

“Big does have its minor faults, such as the parents missing a child idea barely registering, but overall while goofy it is also very charming thanks to the performances and chemistry between the two leads. The story is nice and simple, and it is beautifully handled, while the script is witty, funny and quite charming, like the story. Then there is Penny Marshal's polished direction, some nice cinematography and a sweet soundtrack. The best thing though for me was the performances and chemistry of Tom Hanks and Elizabeth Perkins. Hanks is typically fine in his role, and Perkins makes the most of her character, and the two have a very effective chemistry on screen. So overall, very enjoyable and charming, and actually one of the better body-swap movies out there. 8/10 Bethany Cox” read more
