Tom Hanks won rave reviews for his Oscar nominated performance (1988, Best Actor) as a twelve-year old boy trapped inside a thirty-year-old body, in director Penny Marshall's winning comedy.

At a carnival, young Josh Baskin wishes he was big - only to awake the next morning and discover he is! With the help of his friend Billy (Jared Rushton), Josh lands a job at a toy company. There, his inner wisdom enables him to successfully predict what children want to buy, making the awestruck, naive Josh irresistible to a beautiful ladder climbing colleague (Elizabeth Perkins). But the more he experiences being an adult, the more Josh longs for the simple joys of childhood.

There was a time when Tom Hanks had a boyish look about him...thus as an adult and this role fitted him perfect. Big is a delightful light hearted simplistic yet sentimental comedy drama about a young boy awakening the next morning as a grown up after a magical transformation was in the making the day before....A boy in an adults body helped him in getting a job with a toy manufacturing store only to be an expert in the genre because he was still a child in mind....Elizabeth Perkins plays the confused girl-friend when Hanks does well at his job becoming the flavour of the month then very popular as the new face on the block....Hanks plays the role with great realism as his child like mannerisms within adult surroundings are fantastic so much so you almost feel sad for the boy with his dilemma...Perkins plays a touching kind soul knowing there is something not right but wanting to protect all the same....This is a classic delightful film that is so simplistic it works a treat with great acting performances from the lead roles.......top rated

 Real feel good comedy

This film is a real heart warming comedy about a boy being trapped in an adult's body (Tom Hanks) after a wish he made at a carnival. Along the way he gets a job, rents out his own apartment and even experiences 'love'. It's a very funny film with good acting from Tom Hanks. Deserves all the credit it gets. Definitely get this if you're looking for a good ole' comedy.

 one of the greats

Hanks at his very, very best. Lovely, heart-warming story. I learnt a good lesson as well - never trust a fortune teller at the fair.
