100 Word Review – Big (1988)

This is one of those films that never fails to make me smile.

When Josh, a 12 year old boy, makes a wish on a carnival machine to be big, he doesn’t expect to wake up the next morning an adult (portrayed by a baby faced Tom Hanks). Forced to leave home and find his way on his own.

Co-starring Elizabeth Perkins and Robert Loggia, this film is just lovely. Hanks performance of a 12 year old stranded in an adult world is charming and the whole feature has a magical quality to it. Nominated for 2 Oscars, this film is truly unmissable.


(directed by Penny Marshall)
